Outreach / Fundraisers
We are also proud to support an outreach program for women battling cancer called, Empowerment thru Accessories. Artist, Siobhan Elder, lists her mission for this program," ... to put scarves on the heads of women going through chemotherapy while empowering those involved as they learn to paint the silk and then again, when they share their creation with someone in need." Siobhan teaches silk painting, and we are pleased to donate many of the paints she uses in her classes.
Johny Dar’s “Jeans For Refugees”
proudly sponsored by Jacquard Products
"Jeans for Refugees" is an artistic fundraising initiative from acclaimed fashion designer and artist Johny Dar. The project seeks to benefit displaced peoples around the world, with all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee. Over one hundred celebrities donated jeans to the project, including Emma Watson, Sharon Stone, Kate Moss and Tom Waits, to name a few. Each pair of jeans was hand-painted by Johny Dar and auctioned online at catawiki.com. For the project, Johny used Jacquard's Lumiere 3D paints exclusively, which Jacquard happily donated. Each pair is a work of art and a stunning testament to Lumiere 3D’s potential. Jacquard was thrilled to be a part of the Jeans for Refugees project and to see functional art of this caliber, done with Jacquard paints, working as a force for good in the world.
