Quality Importers Announces Global NFT Gallery Collection

October 7, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

Today Quality Importers Trading Company (QI) introduces the Global NFT Gallery Collection, a series of accessories that are based upon unique NFT artwork from around the globe. The first two lines in this series are the “Havana Beauties” and “Calavera” and will start shipping to retailers nationwide next week.

QI believes in being a patron of the arts, and in the emerging NFT space it is increasingly easy to support budding digital artists. NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are unique cryptographic tokens on the blockchain that can represent anything from digital art, real estate, to even a person’s identity. QI has taken a unique position to bring these digital works of art to life by creating a line of accessories with the goal of assisting artists in their endeavors. With every sale of these luxurious pieces of functional art, a portion of the proceeds will go to the artist to further support their work.

Michael Giordano, CEO and Founder of QI, exclaims, “The NFT community is something I care deeply about. I am able to connect to artists digitally that I never would have discovered otherwise and offer them the unique capabilities here at QI to bring their art to the masses. Art is one of my passions, the walls at our office are covered in artwork I have acquired over the years, and through the SWAG BUNKER we can bring them to life beyond the screen and canvass.”

The Calavera line is being released perfectly in time for Dia de los Muertos. Designed by India based artist Jahnvi Arora specifically for QI, the Calavera features a classic sugar skull design with a twist as it features hidden QI designs.

The Calavera Series includes:

  • Xikar Xi2 MSRP $72.99

  • Humidor Supreme 20 Ct Cigar Humidor MSRP $63.99

  • Four Finger Ashtray MSRP $60.99

    The Havana Beauties line is designed by Maryam Sadeghi, an architect and self-taught artist based in Iran. This series features 5 Cubanesque styled portraits that Sadeghi feels “in this turbulent world, perhaps we can polish our souls a little through art.”

You can make a difference with every purchase.”
