So far we have invested a LOT of money in the project. Actually we even sold our house! There is no way back.
The project was designed with the export market in mind, based on a high value - low volume Premium model. Compared to other industries in the camelid textile sector, we are very small.
Great efforts were made to go all the way from Chile to attend The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) trade show in Columbus, Ohio last june, where Royal Llama was praised for its quality. I would say our business model is validated, with proven market acceptance.
WE WILL NOT QUIT in our efforts to reach the export market…no matter how much additional sacrifice it may take. Yet, as our finances almost touched bottom, it would be wonderful to have those $ 25.000 raised through crowdfunding, in order to accelerate our entry to the international market.
