How It Works
The Sleeper Scarf is easy to use. It wears as an everyday infinity scarf, but what makes it different, is the built in pocket for a neck pillow. The Sleeper Scarf comes with a premium, lightweight, easy-to-inflate neck pillow you will love. When it’s time to get some shut eye, simply unwrap the scarf, unzip the back pocket and open the valve. Inflate the pillow with a few easy breaths, and you’ll be ready to get your beauty rest in no time. To deflate, simply push the pink button and squeeze the pillow to release the air. The neck pillow is removable so you can choose to wear your scarf with or without it.
Sleeper Scarf features a built in, zippered pocket that securely holds the neck pillow in place while you're on-the-go. The scarf's 77 inch length is perfect for wrapping. The pillow is removable, so you can easily switch from one scarf color, to the next. The scarf material is 95% cotton jersey and 5% spandex, which is soft and warm, yet lightweight so it can be worn year round. Sleeper Scarf will launch in black, grey, pink and turquoise.
We tested numerous neck pillows when deciding which one to include with our scarf. It was important to us that the pillow be lightweight when worn, comfortable when sleeping and easy to inflate and deflate. Our chosen travel pillow inflates with 3-4 breaths and easily adjusts to your perfect comfort level by adding more air, or releasing air with the push of a button. To deflate, simply hold down the button and it conveniently deflates in seconds. The pillow is also removable, so you can easily change between different scarf colors and always travel in style.
We plan to manufacture locally in San Francisco, CA. We have secured a factory and have completed the prototyping phase. The next step is to place our initial order. We want to place an order for 1,000 scarves, 250 of each color so that we have inventory on hand when launching our website this spring.
How You Can Help
We need product inventory to launch our website this spring. In order to place our initial order, we need your help in raising $20,000. This allows us to supply scarves to all our Kickstarter supporters, while also providing enough inventory to launch our website. Kickstarter collects 7-10% of what we raise, but the rest will be put towards the cost of sewing and materials. Our primary costs include the neck pillows, fabric, zippers, thread and hang tags.
The Sleeper Scarf brand not only represents sweet dreams while sleeping, but dreaming BIG when you're awake. Sleeper Scarf was born from a dream and it's been an amazing adventure so far. We encourage everyone to identify their passion, their dream, and make it a reality. Create the life of your dreams. And remember, if it was easy, everyone would do it. Dream big and go for it!
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Sleeper Scarf. Your support means the world to us! If we don't raise the full $20,000, we get nothing, so please consider backing our project or sharing with friends and family who may like our product. We truly cannot do this without you.
To all of our project backers, we want to send an extra special THANK YOU and welcome you to the Sleeper Scarf Society. We live for travel, fashion and fun. Stay connected by following @SleeperScarf on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram. We'll keep you updated on the latest travel tips, travel trends and travel fashion.
Risks and challenges
Dream BIG, then work hard!
We know that after the dream, comes the hard work. We've been working for the past year to develop a product we know you will love. The below milestones have been completed.
• Pattern Development
• Fabric Selections
• Fabric Tests
• Fabric Supply Negotiations
• Final Prototyping
• Manufacturing Location
• Packaging & Shipment
• Hang Tag Design and Manufacturing
• Care Label wording and Manufacturing
If our Kickstarter is fully funded, we will be placing an order for 1,000 scarves with our factory. Currently, we have only done small run throughs with our factory, so there is some risk involved, with this being our first large order. The factory has given us a 4 week lead time for 1,000 scarves and we have built in an extra 2 week cushion in case there are any production delays, however if the delays are more significant, we will be sure to keep all backers in the loop.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
