The Hooded Infinity Sport Towel - (Patent D 693,096)
Why drag your towel to your workout when you can wear it? The ONLY wearable towel where fashion and function collide!
Team Laura Alison is formed of my two daughters Melissa and Sarah and me.
After gaining a few pounds over the holidays this year, it was back to the gym for me! What I noticed at the gym was people draping their towels on the equipment (YUK!), or wearing oversized or too small towels around their necks and over their heads. I realized what I needed was a towel version of my Hooded Infinity Scarf!
So I made one, and tried it, and I fell in love with it.
When I'm on the treadmill or bike I can use the hood to screen out distractions and keep me focused. It never falls off my shoulders during my workout, and I'm never draping a sweaty towel over the equipment. After my workout in the winter, when my hair is sweaty or freshly showered, the hood protects me from the cold and wind. And it's stylish and pretty.
I made some for my friends and they say it's genius.
So if I can raise $7000 I can do a manufacturing run large enough, in multiple colors, that I can sell them for $20 each. I really think you'll love my Hooded Infinity Sport Towel if you try it.
(And if you're an organization, the towels are a great giveaway to clients, or employees, or at a business event. I can do customized towels with a saying or your logo.)
Risks and challenges
I do realize that it is very hard to launch a new product. I have been living it and have been working hard for the past 6 years from inception to get the word out. I have had some great success and some great failures. It had been quite a ride. I have felt like giving up many times but every time I think I can quit, something amazing happens and I am re-energized. I have realized that I must learn from the disappointments and move forward even stronger. I realize that along with hard work, it will also take a stroke of luck and the right contacts. (So if anyone can help me out there as well PLEASE contact me ASAP!!)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
