About this project

Quivvers began with a mindset to create a technical and minimal solution for carrying personal items on the go.  We are committed to producing a high quality, technical device that will help define and enhance a lifestyle that is on the go and athletic.  

We spent years developing and testing our product, filing patents, sourcing materials and investing in a manufacturing stream in America.  We manufacture Quivvers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and use raw materials from the USA.   We have a mindset to become a gem of America making responsible decisions.  We know that our products are manufactured in safe environments with a minimum footprint on the earth and that each dollar goes toward the USA economy.

We launched in December of 2011 and have had a great initial response.  We were chosen as a featured company in the Associated Press Fender Lounge at Sundance where celebrities loved quivvers!  We have been tweeted, blogged and facebooked by a myriad of influencers and have sold through our first round of quivvers in just a few months!  Now we are working toward building our manufacturing and distribution sources, so we can make our business viable and grow while keeping it MADE IN AMERICA.  This is where you can help support our Made in the USA focus and make our dream to become a successful company. Thank you so much for your interest and support!  It really can make a difference to this start-up.  Go Quivvers!

Sincerely,

Amy Barnum  

Technical. Minimal. Intelligent.

How to rock a quivver!

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge to this project is timing and logistics to scale up appropriately. We want to produce in a quantity that provides optimal cost, quality and pricing for quivvers for our customers, but demand and distribution has to match. Production planning will be key for quivvers - and getting the word out to the marketplace! We have to find the right market channel to reach our customers efficiently and easily. The challenge here is that traditional distribution channels are used to cheaper imports that have a huge margin for profit, not USA made items that have a slimmer margins based on fair manufacturing costs.
