Inspiration

Inspired by the hundreds of projects that designers have demonstrated on Kickstarter, we decided that the best way to give back to that inspirational well was by launching a campaign ourselves.

We think its important that we can continue working with people we trust in order to keep the integrity of the products, raising these funds will help us not only put these pieces from this collection into production, but will also help us to create our next collection. 

One of the benefits of pledging is that you're able to get our products at wholesale prices.  We have tried to include a large number of rewards so that you can find something you like.

We'd love to have your help in reaching our goal and know that you'll love our new sleeves!

Funding

We are launching our first ever Kickstarter project with our new 'Heritage' range. This is the starter project to produce high quality tablet and laptop sleeves, using natural and heritage materials, such as wool, tweed, tartan and leathers.

We have designed and prototyped a number of wool and leather sleeves, experimented with different dye’s and textures and we believe we have developed a set of products to launch the 'Heritage' range.

Manufacturing

We work with one manufacturer who specialises in handmade and hand crafted accessories, we have an established working relationship developed over a number of years.

We are constantly looking at new ideas and we’re keen to expand the products we offer, like with all manufacturing, the more we can produce the cheaper the unit cost, and in turn more affordable the product will be to our customers.

Extras

We have a lot more up our sleeves!

If we receive extra funding we will invest into expanding this range using different coloured leathers, we will also start prototyping the second phase in our heritage range.

Funding required

We are looking for £3000 to kick us off, this is for manufacturing only.

Risks and challenges

As with any creative endeavour there are always risks. But we believe making the sleeves may be one of the least risky Kickstarter projects ever because -
• We have been working with the same manufacturing team throughout.
• We’ve spent the last 3 years making various iPad sleeves in significant quantities
• Products have been market tested
• We’ve shipped thousands of items to happy customers all over the world in the UK, USA, Australia, Mexico, Brazil and Israel to name but a few...

If we are fully funded, we guarantee to deliver your pledge reward within a 3 weeks timescale after the pledge drive ends.
