Azuki Twin Tigers NFT can now be exchanged for a physical jacket

Founded by the Los Angeles start-up, Chiru Laboratories, Azuki combines streetwear and skateboard culture through exclusive artwork released as NFT. After the initial collection of 10,000 anime-style tokens, the Azuki NFT project is now experiencing its first digital-to-physical product experience, the “Twin Tigers Jackets”.

Since launching in January this year, Azuki has nurtured a global following of collectors, creatives, and builders. Azuki has been focused on growing his community and improving public services for his holders after allegations of rug pulling.

In his efforts, Azuki dropped 10,000 Twin Tigers jackets to collectors in May. Bridging the gap between Azuki’s virtual mission and tangible high fashion, holders will be able to redeem their token for the physical item starting tomorrow, July 19.

Inspired by a classic 1940s style, Twin Tigers jackets feature a Sukajan look that fuses American and Japanese street cultures. The jackets feature a reversible colorway with two designs created in Los Angeles by Azuki’s in-house tailor, Takeda.

Those who choose to burn the currently blue-colored token for the jacket will see their NFT turn red, enhancing digital-physical interaction. Representing this change, the Wearable Jacket features a new reversible colorway design.

For holders who don’t claim the physical jacket, their token will remain the blue jacket – which Azuki says will have an unknown future use.

Crafted from quilted Japanese silk, the blue exterior showcases a chenille tiger while the red interior features the Azuki logo. The embroidered designs covering the back, chest and sleeves were crafted by Azuki artist, Steamboy.

For the next 30 days, all Twin Tigers Jacket token holders have the opportunity to receive the $2,000 Jacket completely free. Voted for by the community of Azuki holders, the jacket tokens will live under the same NFT collection.

Proceeds from the Twin Tiger Jacket’s aftermarket will support Stand with Asians, an AAPI community fund that partners with designers to distribute grants to underserved AAPI communities.
