This project is to celebrate and appreciate the Japanese Holiday known as Girl's Day (雛祭り, Hina-matsuri) through these cute enamel pins. Each pin is designed to reference features of the holiday and other aspects of Japanese culture.
❤ About the holiday/cultural significance:
Celebrated each year on the 3rd of March, this seasonal festival is best known for its doll sets, which feature a representations of Japanese nobility and attendants in traditional Heian court dress. Read about it more here.

Risks and challenges
We are both experienced designers and have worked with various manufacturers throughout our time making pins; given that experience, we know there are inherent risks to going to production with a manufacturer... typically, these have to do with the timeline:
❤ Manufacturer Delays (e.g. replacement of pieces that didn't make the cut)
❤ Shipping mishaps (e.g. delayed packages)
To mitigate these risks, concrete and detailed product specifications will be communicated to the manufacturer. For shipping, packages will have tracking numbers and mailed via USPS.
Note: Major defects from manufacturing will go into the reject pile, but minor defects typical of enamel pins will be accepted from the manufacturer and sent as rewards (i.e. STANDARD GRADE PINS); these accepted defects are typically those that are somewhat difficult to see without intense visual inspection. By backing this campaign, you have read and understand this, and you are okay with very minor defects in your rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
