A lot of existing key related products were made with hard materials such as aluminum, stainless, etc. But we came with an idea to give more classical and soften touch to the product by using leather. Basically, we wanted to offer a multi-tool key case with luxurious design. Keylayer design is completed after numbers of 2D designing and prototyping of the mini tool and leather.
We are currently at completion of design and structure stage.
The Keylayer is not assemble at one manufacturer, the leather part will be manufactured at a partner who worked for our previous project. Stainless tool will be manufactured with a new partner who specializes in laser cutting, grinding and polishing. All the manufacturing partners have sufficient experience and knowledge to satisfy our customer’s standard. After the successful project completion with Kickstarter, We plan to launch an online shop where customers can easily access to the products. Additionally, we are currently in discussion with other retail shops as well.
As soon as we reach the pledged amount, The next step is to place the order for materials and start the first production. We will do our best and have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadlines.

There is always a possibility of unexpected obstacles. In order to mitigate and avoid any challenges related to production schedule, our team have already selected reliable manufacturer prior to Kickstarter funding.
Also, production planning has been completed. However, the production period may change , depending on the number of Keylayer orders.
