About

When we first started working on Azula, we strived to focus on doing more than just selling watches. We wanted to give back to children in need while creating the first ever fabric faced watch. Both were lofty goals and we worked tirelessly to make them happen. Unfortunately when we launched on Kickstarter, our goal of giving back did not fall within their rules and we received this message:

Kickstarter wanted to shut us down. The charitable aspects of our project did not fall within their rules. We were in shock—after months of pouring our lives into Azula, our dream was being taken away from us. In about an hour, we rewrote our whole campaign page and edited some of our video, scrambling to make our project would fit within Kickstarter’s rules.

After a few additional drafts, Kickstarter re-accepted Azula. Our project now lacked a direct charitable connection that was previously displayed. Our whole goal with Azula was to give back and Kickstarter is restricting that aspect of our project. 

We are cancelling this project on Kickstarter but that doesn’t mean Azula won’t become a reality. We are already planning a new campaign that will most likely air on another crowdfunding platform that allows philanthropic focused projects. For those of you who supported us on Kickstarter, we sincerely appreciate it. 

This is not Azula’s end, yet just a road bump along the path to success. This whole startup process has been a complete learning curve and we hope you’re willing to continue the ride with us. 

For now, to stay up to date you can join the cause at www.azulawatches.com or on Facebook and as always feel free to reach us at info@azulawatches.com .

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing competency is at the core of our project. We truly understand that all of our backers are taking a risk when they choose to back our project. Rest assured, we HAVE done this before. We are familiar not only with the manufacturing process, but more specifically the manufacturing of this specific product. All of our partners have been strictly vetted and are ready to rock after the campaign. We work directly with our factory throughout the duration of the process. We do ALL quality control in house in order to make sure you get the highest quality end product.

Please remember that production won't begin until after this campaign ends. We will inform you when we put the final order in.

There may be speed-bumps along the way, but we will keep you informed throughout the whole entire process. We couldn't be more excited to get a watch on your wrist!

Thank you,

The Azula Team
