What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 Meet the Melange bed sheets. 

 Featured On

 

 

During the development of Melange, we wanted to address some concerns.

 

 

 

      

One challenging obstacle we faced while developing the Melange sheets was figuring out a formula that allowed us to integrate a variety of features into one sheet. After extensive prototyping with different fabrics and fabric combination, we found a solution! Using 97% Premium Long Staple Cotton and 3% Synthetic fibers, we were able to achieve our desired result. 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

  

 

 We wanted our pricing to be simple and transparent. All unnecessary costs have been stripped away, allowing us to bring you a great sheet, at a great price! 

Remaining percentages represent our markup + variable handling costs at the port. The Melange sheets are being offered at wholesale pricing with radical transparency. Not only should the sheets be priced so that nobody breaks their bank, but what goes into the sheet should be disclosed.

 

 

 

At Melange, we believe less is more. For that reason, we have avoided using patterns and vibrant colors. Instead, we offer two minimalist colors to choose from that will that will bring value to all users.  

 

 

 

 

       We have over 20 combined years of experience working with the world’s largest retailers and textile manufacturing. Through our cumulative and rich sourcing experiences, we are able to adeptly vet and identify the best possible resource in providing you with our newly developed Melange sheets. We are intimately engaged with our supply chain initiatives and therefore are able to provide you the best-in-class quality, service, and price.

We have supply chain professionals on board to ensure we deliver your reward on time. We have built in reinforcements to account for any surprises and to ensure all the development is complete.

 Weekly updates will be provided after the campaign duration concludes.

What If You Are Not Happy With Your Sheets?

 What Will We Do With Returned Sheets?

After we thoroughly wash the sheets, we will donate them to a charity.

Melange is made up of a small dedicated team with over 20 years of combined experience in the textile industry. Jack will be managing operations, brand development, and backer relations. Greg will focus on product development and logistics. Diego and Kristyn will focus on graphic design and marketing strategies. 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team is made up of experts in all necessary fields to strive in the textile industry. We understand what goes into making this product and we've done it in the past.

Our factory partners are ready to go. We have already produced a small sample run, and some of our lucky friends are already enjoying them.

We have over-anticipated our potential order quantities, therefore ensuring that our partners can manufacture, package and ship on time.
