About

Chanakira is a quirky-cool tech and accessories brand, who specialise in designing and creating nerdy but trendy accessories that are both relatable and affordable. 

The first EVER Chanakira designs!
The first EVER Chanakira designs!

From being a confused teenager to a confused adult I’ve managed to start my own brand show casing my artwork that I once neglected because of the lack of confidence. I have managed to blend my interest in manga with my urban upbringing and pioneered my own style of art. 

The idea for Chanakira came about when I was at university. I started making custom phone cases for myself as I couldn't find any that I felt matched my Urban Kawaii girl personality. Eventually I started making them for my friends and the whole thing go out of hand from there!

Can you not!
Can you not!

 My designs have always been based around women and GRL PWR! I felt like it was important to have a bomb ass phone case that we could all relate to or find either funny and motivational. The majority of accessories I design are my own delicious blend of Pop art Vs Manga illustrative style, which makes them an edgy alternative to other phone case brands. When creating my illustrations, I like to keep everyone included. This means that there is something for everyone, whether you are white, black, skinny, tall, Asian and so on. Our mantra at Chanakira is positive vibes saves lives!

 Growing up, I used to watch loads of anime and lived on Ai Yazawa  and Naoko Takeuchi Mangas. NANA and Sailor moon Mangas heavily influenced me to create nostalgic accessories that takes us back to the 90's.  On our instagram, we have a large following of Sailor moon and anime fans, so we try to create content that pleases them as well as our Bad and Boujee Gal Dem. Our growing popularity amongst Jpop community means you can find us at events such as MCM Comic con and Hyper Japan.

Why Kickstarter?

It is time to level up! The response to Chanakira on the interweb and on socials has been amazing! The only thing we can do now is go hard or go home. We are planning on expanding the brand and bring new products to our store.

Chanakira mainly caters to Apple and Samsung users and we feel it's that only fair to bring in some cases for other phone models such as:

  • Huawei 
  • Sony
  • Google
  • LG
  • HTC

In addition to expanding phone models, we will being bringing in new items such as:


  • Hard shell laptop cases, 
  • Tablet cases
  • Pop Sockets, 
  • Socks
  • Notebooks

To level up in such an epic way, we need your help to raise money for manufacturing costs and packaging. We also have some ideas brewing if we surpass our goal (but we will get to that later).

Risks and challenges

The risky stuff.

All business have risks. The main risks that we could face, would be the inability to correctly anticipate the manufacturing and delivery time. Another factor for us to assess, is have enough stock to fit the demand.

To makes sure that these risks and challenges won't interfere too much with the business, we have come up with a time line and a spreadsheet that accurately calculates design- manufacturing- delivery time. So far this formula has worked and has had no faults.

To ensure our clients are super satisfied, we quality check all of our products before they are shipped out. We also offer an exchange on any times that are faulty or damaged.

Other possible risks include:

-Postal strikes
-Faulty products
-Miss prints
