Japanese artist Shota Matsuda started Heralbony in 2016 as a way to promote disabled artists, and since then it's grown into an art licensing social enterprise that works with disabled people, businesses, and other organizations.

Now, a new partnership between Matsuda's Heralbony and Japan Airlines is bringing art into the airline's cabins, Business Insider reports.

"Through powerful art with narratives of their unique identities, we aspire to overcome prejudgments and so-called common sense that divide the worlds around us and will continue to showcase these radiant talents in every way possible," Heralbony says in a press release.

To that end, JAL has partnered with Formia, a company that specializes in in-flight products, to create amenity kits featuring artwork from six artists.

The kits are available in six colors: yellows, pinks, oranges, reds, and purples, as well as black and white.
