The LVMH-owned luggage brand will auction four digital artworks on May 18 amid surging interest in the market for Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs. The one-of-a-kind digital assets have emerged as a hot commodity, with consumers willing to pay millions to acquire the blockchain-secured virtual items.

In March, design studio RTFKT and digital artist Fewocious generated $3.1 million off of 621 pairs of NFT shoes, leaving consumers wondering what the rise of these digital assets could mean for fashion.

Rimowa said it is the first luxury travel brand to create a collection of NFTs, partnering with multidisciplinary design practice Nuova to develop four images of a food cart, lamp, sound system and table that incorporate design features from the brand. The pieces will be sold on NFT marketplace Rarible and the proceeds will go to the artwork’s creators and a charity focused on humanitarian issues, Rimowa said.
