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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Meet the Melange bed sheets.
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.
