Cat Stevens’ Jeans for Refugees – Owned, Donated and Signed by Cat Stevens
Jeans For Refugees is a unique art and fashion collection by Johny Dar, dedicated to supporting refugees worldwide. The initiative is simple: Celebrities donate their jeans. Johny Dar paints them. The Jeans For Refugees are exhibited and sold to raise funds for the International Rescue Committee. As part of the collection, jeans owned, donated and signed by Cat Stevens, featuring hand-painted artwork by Johny Dar, are now available at this location.
About the Jeans
The jeans are painted with 3D fabric paint, so they are as wearable as they are collectible.
Each pair of Jeans For Refugees has been hand-painted by Johny Dar, who created a dynamic artistic expression on each piece to represent the unique personality of the individual who donated them. A new and innovative form of celebrity memorabilia with a purpose – Jeans For Refugees is a unique art and fashion collection dedicated to restoring the dignity of refugees.
Every piece affirms that all human beings have the right to live in peace and harmony, and that – individually and together – we can make this possible. By buying Jeans For Refugees you are helping to sustain the International Rescue Committee’s initiatives worldwide that are supporting people displaced by man-made and natural disasters like war and famine.
Profits will be donated to the International Rescue Committee supporting refugees worldwide. In addition to Cat Stevens, you can also purchase jeans worn by other celebrities, including Tom Waits and Benicio del Toro, at this location.
About Jeans for Refugees
More than 100 celebrities have donated their jeans for the cause, and Dar’s painting on each pair is a dynamic expression inspired by the individual that donated them – an artistic tribute to their former celebrity owner.
Funds raised help to sustain IRC initiatives worldwide, bringing much-needed aid to people displaced by man-made and natural disasters like war and famine.
The Jeans For Refugees can be framed, worn, collected or given as a meaningful, unforgettable gift. Owning a pair of Jeans For Refugees is more than owning an art investment, or a piece of celebrity memorabilia – it is safeguarding a symbol of hope for a brighter future for humanity. By participating in Jeans For Refugees, you are helping to support refuges worldwide.
‘Jeans For Refugees started as a humble dream of wanting to make a difference through what I can do, on a personal level, which is painting those jeans – and the rest was only possible through the generous souls that have contributed to this project. I am honoured and humbled to be a part of this, and grateful to everyone who is supporting this initiative. Your support really means the world, and means a lot to the world, because by coming together for a common cause, great change is possible.’
