Akkadenim Blue Rebels Public Live Auction

Akkadenim joined forces with The Denim Daily for their innovative online auction. The online auction has one sole purpose being philanthropy. 100% of all auction proceeds go to non profit charities that empower and educate impoverished children in India and Cambodia.

The auction contains limited edition pieces that are constructed using akkadenim’s revolutionary recycled upcycled selvedges complimented with upcycled industrial fish sacks from Dara Children’s Trust Cambodia. They created two complete men’s sets of outstanding and unique pieces.

Akkadenim says about their online auction: ”Our akkademic ‘Blue Rebels’ auction is 100% bespoke, 100% luxury, 100% Denim Masters, 100% a worldfirst, with 100% of all auction proceeds to charity as that’s how we see social responsibility today. We believe todays over saturated CSR industries have lost sight of why and to whom the end benefactee’s genuinely are, given today’s Global brands more often than not bolt on CSR as a financially driven self-perpetuating after-thought. Our live public auction cuts away the many industry layers now wrongly selfgoverning self-rewarding today’s fashion industries.”

You can bid unitl the end of August in $5,- or $10,- increments. By participating and bidding you are supporting the next blue generation.
