About

What is this idea about?

Have you ever wondered if radiation from your mobile phone could harm you and your fertility, your manhood? We have! And we have developed the solution: 

Kronjuwelen – Shorts made out of radiation proofed fabrics

The mobile phone has turned into one of the most important items that we carry with us 365 days a year right next to the even more important thing in our life. This got us wondering, and the once futuristic idea of boxershorts that protect men from radiation was born. Yet, we did not only want to create a short that is functional. For men our age, design and fit is just as important. We’d like to think that with the Kronjuwelen short we have accomplished our mission: 

A safe and sexy boxershort with a fair manufacturing process.  

 Our Product

Following our idea, we found a small textile manufacturer in Albstadt, Germany, who was willing to experiment with us regarding the functionality and design of the shorts while guaranteeing that fabric production is done 100% in Germany. Together with a German university, we and the textile manufacturer developed a knitwear product that protects from a significant amount of all standard mobile phone and WiFi radiation:

Despite its functionality, it was important for us that the shorts are easily washable and provide large comfort. Hence, we decided on a composition of c. 20% silver, c. 60% polyester and c. 20% polyamide. 

 Fit Guide

We have looked closely at sizing and fitting of well-known underwear fabricators and have orientated our fit to every so well-known boxershorts.

Our Team and our Story

We are Daniel Herter, Berno Delius, Peer-Boy Matthiesen and Nick Piepenburg. We studied business together a few years ago and have been friends since. Seven years after graduating and with the experience from very different jobs we came back to an idea that we already had developed during university. We are neither radiologists, physicists nor cancer researchers, and we cannot finally determine the risks of mobile phone radiation. And yet, we did not want to live with these potential risks anymore and hence, dedicated our free time over the last year to develop the Kronjuwelen shorts. We believe that we have made a significant step to provide all men with safer underwear. After we found the right material composition and received the certificate from the university, we spent huge amounts of time to improve the design and comfort of our shorts. 

Today, we are proud of what we have developed and look forward to jolting the established underwear market.

Due to a lot of requests during the campaign we are very proud to present a new product innovation – the ALL BLACK Kronjuwelen boxershorts. This boxershorts is following the market vibes and trends of “all black” products. This new reward is available now – the “ALL BLACK (limited edition)”:

We need your help to make Kronjuwelen com to life! Support our project and be one of the first men who'll receive Kronjuwelen underwear. 

 Why Kickstarter and what's in for you?

Every single backer counts, and every backer will become a part of this story. We will do everything we can to show you how appreciative we are. Every dollar is humbly received and every word is taken with gratitude. At the end of the campaign, we will send each backer a little gift related to his/her donation. 

Next to our beautiful boxers, we will be delighted if you share our idea, passion and company with the rest of the world. If this is also something for you, you might appreciate our little rewards:

Why would your support be helpful?

Well, it's money. Some say that always helps. We also would like to become famous with our shorts and in the end, save mother earth.

On a bit more serious note: To date, we have kept production sizes small. Your funding will allow for our team to increase bulk quantity orders. This will enable us to meet industry standard minimums with our purchase orders that we otherwise would not be able to reach. Once all of our materials are in house, we can move swiftly towards production of larger batches. Having the ability to place a larger production order with our manufacturer is crucial. We can now manufacture our goods at a lower price per unit, allowing for a competitive pricing of the shorts. 

This is why we need you to save as many balls as possible!
Join us and get a part of it, now!

Risks and challenges

We’d love to tell you that there are no risks involved in backing us, but we’re straight-shooters.
As with every Kickstarter production campaign, there are some inherent risks involving materials, manufacturing, and fulfilment.
We’ve done everything we can to iron out any production issues ahead of time. We and our suppliers are ready to go. We’ve even manually shipped nearly 100 units already and have systems in place for fulfilment.
Our goal is to over-deliver, and from the product to the processes, we’ve taken every possible step to make that so.

This is our first Kickstarter project and we cannot triumph with previous success stories on this platform. Be assured that we have done our best to make realistic projections of the amount of raw materials we need, the time we need to receive them, and the time we need to manufacture the underwear. The risk with that is that if unavoidable production issues come up, the delivery of your rewards will be delayed.
Nothing is perfect. But this is something we want to achieve.
We are young and highly motivated to bring this to life, and we are happy to solve any problems that might cross our plans and solve it for the customers.

With that said, we will make two promises:

1. We will deliver the highest quality possible to each and every single backer. We take pride in having people back us and we want to give back. We will never compromise on quality.

2. We will keep the lines of communication open at all times. If we cross problems, run into hurdles or find any queries, you will be first to know. And we like to encourage you to get in contact with us, we are more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

We cannot give you a scientific or medical guarantee that Kronjuwelen underwear will protect you completely from diseases.
