Golchi Built-in Storage:
Aesthetic I Ergonomic I Functional. Now carry everyday essentials in your Golchi and be carefree for entire day. There's no limit to what all you can carry.

'3 in 1' Bottom Lid:
With different beverages come different ways to drink them, and Golchi has that covered too with its "Patent Pending Controlled Flow Mechanism".
Users can select the size of the drinking spout based on the beverages they are about to consume. With a movable slider and three level locking points, it can be adjusted to make the spout small for hot beverages or enlarged for cold drinks.
Magnetic Lock Mechanism in the bottom lid prevents the cover of the lid from falling back on your nose, letting you enjoy your drink unobstructed! We understand that convenience matters.
Sipper Cap at Top - Single handed operation : Perfect for people on the go and on this planet
Multipurpose Lower Compartment- For your thirst and hunger. Use it as:
- Bottle for a cold or a hot drink
- Food Canister for cereals / snacks
- Vacuum Insulated Can Holder for chilled Cans on the go
Temperature Markers on both the lids help you always remember whether it’s a hot or cold drink inside.
Collapsible Handle makes carrying Golchi around super convenient. It aligns very well with the curvature of the bottle to further enhance the looks of Golchi.
Perfect Temperature Insulation through double walled vacuum insulation keeps your cold drinks ice cold for 24 hours and hot drinks piping hot for 12 hours.
Leak Proof Design : Triple layer protection at both ends along with a lock-anti-lock thread design ensures that not even a drop leaks from the bottle.
Super Easy Cleaning : Traditional bottles are very difficult to clean because of the relative inaccessibility of lower portion. Golchi splits from middle and has a wide mouth and base to make cleaning super easy. It's also dishwasher safe.
No Taste / Odor Retention : The premium grade stainless steel ( 304 s/s) on both inner and outer surface makes odor or taste retention a complete impossibility.
BPA Free: Although Golchi makes minimal usage of plastic in design, wherever it is used, you are assured it's a premium grade, certified BPA free plastic.
Collapsible Tea Infuser ( Optional) : Collapsible design, optimal sized holes, silicon material and an adjustable diameter makes the Golchi tea infuser a perfect fit for Golchi as well as for a range of popular cups and mugs. The infuser fits very well into the built-in storage of Golchi, which also makes Golchi an integrated tea vessel!
Golchi fits in almost everywhere - standard size car cup holders, bike cages, baby strollers, side pockets of bag packs or sling bags. You can also carry it using the collapsible handle.

Mix n Match
Golchi in the Making : Conceptualized and Designed in USA : After a year and a half long journey that spanned three continents, we have finally achieve our vision and designed something that we all can be proud of together !
Keep "GO"ing and "Chill" are two core ideas we wanted to emphasize. We also wanted something new, and free from confines of any language. That's what went into creating the brand "Golchi". Our next challenge was to represent it through a logo that has a character and is compatible with 'invertible' nature of our bottle. We finally came up with a logo, representative of thoughts we have put into designing this bottle.
In our logo, the line proceeding to the right depicts the motion in accordance with the term "go". Terms "go" and "ch" denote the two compartments of our bottle. The red and blue colors represent vacuum insulation for both cold and hot beverages. The two dots on the sides of the logo depict two openings on the either side of our bottle. And finally, our logo is an ambigram: if you rotate it by 180 degrees in any direction, it retains its identity.
Risks and challenges
Your Golchi team has worked extremely hard to prepare this product for Kickstarter and lined up full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks:
The pre-production stage includes tooling to manufacture a product of these specifications. Tooling is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds, which are where some delays could occur.
As we gear up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. We will always be making product improvements to make it better, and we'll let you know exactly how and why any are made.
We are working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will probably be some surprises along the way, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
