About this project

THREADS SNAP SOCKS

The Familiar Story

How many times have you went to the laundry and trusted the machines with your lovely feet accessories, only to find that your pair has turned into a party of one....It's time for a change and we are putting an end to the common "dryer-monster" and "washer phantom". How will we do that? Glad you asked. Read On.

Protect Your Investments

   I love my socks. I can say that I am quite the collector; as are many of you that are reading this. Our socks remain connected during the wash and dry cycles. While dancing, you can rest assured that separation will not be an option. At an affordable price, you can feel a bit more safe with collecting our cool socks. High-end retail shops contain the same blend as Threads. 80% cotton, 19% nylon and 1% spandex. It's also awesome for the environment as well as it is for your wallet. Nobody likes a mismatched pair. Therefore that single sock ends up in a landfill, thus contributing to the 21 billion pounds of textile waste per year. That number can skyrocket to 35 billion pounds by the year 2019. Let Threads do the dirty work and help clean up the planet.

Here's What We'll Do

We'll send out your assorted pack right away along with a prepaid shipping label. This shipping label will be our contribution to the environment. You will then send us your single socks and we will recycle them for you. Just let us know if you would like to send us your singles and we'll gladly send out the shipping label.

We Need You

Your pledge will go towards the manufacturing of Threads. The factories require a minimum for takeoff. Everyone deserves an upgrade in their sock collection. No sock should remain single. Thanks for considering THREADS SNAP SOCKS.

Risks and challenges

This campaign has been in the works for quite some time. We wanted to have the ball rolling. The leg-work has been very tedious but we are ready and feel that we are at the last lap of our journey. Upon completion of the campaign, we will wait for the funds to be deposited. During this time, we will fulfill orders as well as prepare our Thank Yous and Closing Credits to all of our backers and foot soldiers.

Timeline:
Completion of Kickstarter
20 days for clearing of funds
Week 1: Backer Survey (choosing packs, providing mailing address etc)
Weeks 2-9: Production Run
Weeks 10-12: Freight
Weeks 13: Final packaging and fulfillment

Design:
We work with a designer who as been in the field for 20 years. You can assure that the quality of our socks are the same, if not better than the top brands. We will also make final color tweaks before we begin production.

Production:
Our team are specialists in apparel manufacturing. We are dealing with a firm based in NYC. The fashion capital of the world. Due to the close proximity, we have full control over our production, making the timeline over-ambitious. We look for perfection and that's what you can expect in our product.

Time:
As stated earlier, our production and fulfillment schedule are ambitious. There will be some bumps. We are not expecting, but we have to expect the unexpected and plan for that. We will keep you posted via our website and social media of the development.
