Created by German deisgner Phoebe Heess, Viperblack is inspired by the skin of the Gaboon viper and works by trapping light rather than reflecting it to create a shade of 'super black'.

Viperblack t-shirts are currently only available via Phoebe's kickstarter campaign. But for all you colourphobes this is another step closer to the dark side.
