PINTRILL Teams up With LA-Based Artist Kai for an Exclusive Pin Collaboration

Only 50 will be for sale.

Brooklyn-based accessory and lifestyle brand PINTRILL has teamed up with artist Kai for a pin of his signature “IF” (Imaginary Friend) character, marking the artist’s first ever merchandise release. Each pin, which is 3D molded and treated with an antique brushed gold finish, contains a numbered engraving on the back and each backing card was handmade and signed by Kai himself.

 ”I have stayed away from merch for about 10 years. The reason I finally decided to team up with PINTRILL is because they believe in the artist and the artist’s freedom of expression. When I came to them with the idea to do a limited pin with a hand-made backing to make the pin a piece of art, they supported the idea 100%.”

The pins will be available at a limited stock of 50 and sold exclusively online on August 3 at 12 p.m. ET for $15 USD.

Get a closer look at the pins above and see Kai craft each bespoke backing card via the video below video. For more PINTRILL collaborations, check out this mega-hyped BAPE Ape Head pin.
