Through ARTiSTORY's partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Cariuma secured the licensing rights to Hokusai's masterpieces, ensuring that every design remains authentic and respectful of the artist's legacy. This collaboration underscores Cariuma's commitment to ethical sourcing and supporting cultural institutions.

"Watanabe no Gengo Tsuna," the focal point of Cariuma's second collection, pays homage to Japan's rich samurai tradition. Hokusai's meticulous brushwork and attention to detail are evident in the intricate portrayal of the warrior, capturing the essence of honor, courage, and resilience. By translating this timeless artwork onto sneakers, Cariuma transforms each pair into a wearable masterpiece, bridging the gap between art and fashion.
