Art projects

We love to work with local artists such as traditional signpainters, tattoo artists and contemporary art painters for art in our collections as well as our showroom or stores. The Art on Denim project started in 2017 with five artists customising denim jackets to raise funds for the Amsterdam Food Bank. Now a yearly tradition around X-Mas.
