Hello this is Nina, Thorsten and Ron from TOCA ME. Since we started TOCA ME in 2003 as an online design platform and then a year later launched the first TOCA ME design conference, the idea of TOCA ME has always been to work with great artists we love.
Following this idea TOCA ME art & style will present high quality artworks and apparel by selected artists from all over the world. From illustration, drawings to generative art. Combining outstanding designs with high fashion statements and cool products.
Our major goal of this project is to produce a collection of fashion scarves with artworks by GMUNK, Syl Hillier, Thisisarobot, James Paterson and Mario Klingemann. The designs will be printed in high quality digital print on silk twill and modal. We already produced prototypes and also tests of the packaging - all looks fantastic! We are ready to start and with your help we could go into production.
Please visit the TOCA ME art & style website for all details about the scarves, such as material, dimensions, etc. There you find also images of the complete artworks and additional pics.
Ideas are cool, but it’s a tough job to get them realized. No complains, we knew this from the start and worked hard to push the project to the current level. Now we have some awesome artworks by artists we admire and after months of testing materials and prototyping a great manufacturer to work with. We just can’t wait to take the next step: go into production and make the idea happen - together with you!
The major part of the funds will help us to cover the basic production costs of the scarves. For this first edition we can’t go into industry-level-quantities. We are very glad that we found a manufacturer who allows us to produce also smaller amounts of scarves to a reasonable price. Besides, we have to consider extra costs such as for packaging and distribution.
You like one of the scarves? So just choose your favorite and pledge for that particular scarf. If you can’t decide which one you like most you can also go for the complete collection.
Furthermore we have a very special bundle: you can combine your scarf with a ticket for the upcoming TOCA ME design conference in Munich (February 21st 2015). Check the prices and you will see this is a super occasion - only available during the next 30 days here on Kickstarter.
Please note that all prices are in US Dollar.
Since the beginning of TOCA ME we received so much support from the design community and had the pleasure to get to know a lot of wonderful people: artists, designers, coders, magazine makers, event organizers - there are so many amazing people around just doing awesome stuff. You are motivating us to push things forward!
Thanks for supporting this project,
Nina, Thorsten and Ron

Risks and challenges
Putting out a product is always a challenge. We have done a lot of research in materials and printing - including numerous testprints over the last months - to reach highest quality standards. The artworks are done by experienced designers and artists - plus working as graphic designers ourselves for more than 15 years we know what’s possible to print and what you better don’t do in order to avoid bad surprises later on. Very important - we have a manufacturer we know and trust. And last but not least, from past projects we already have experience in production, handling packaging, shipping and distribution.
Every single step in production and timing is well planned and all costs are calculated. Aside of high quality of the product, professional fulfillment is very important for us. We will work hard to ensure you will get your scarf in spring 2015 and will keep you up with news about the project status here on kickstarter during the time until shipping.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
