A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Over 20 times smaller than a towel rack
Dry 2 times faster than any ordinary towel holder
Helps reduce bacterial growth caused by moisture
Holds up to 10 scarves! NO SLIDING, NO WRINKLES, and NO DENTS
No tools required for fast and easy installation!
Can be placed in areas where you’d never put a towel rack
Made from 18 natural wood species (see wood species selection below)
Dry 2 X faster
The main concept of Ruggy is the marble that holds the towel at a pin point. This technique allows the weight of the towel to hang free, while airing out the moisture captured in the towel. Ruggy allows more air to flow through the entire towel, causing the towel to dry twice faster than using a towel rack.
Sickness-causing bacteria detected in 90% of towels.
Damp towels are full of germs, which can potentially cause infection.
To reduce bacterial growth caused by moisture and to eliminate germs passing to other towels, each towel should hang separately and entirely dry between uses. Ruggy allows you to fit more hangers and effectively dry more towels. A towel rack bar ranges between 18-36 inches in length, while Ruggy is less than 1.5 inches wide.
Wood Species Selection
Natural wood is resilient, aesthetically pleasing, and comes with different colors. We selected EIGHTEEN different colors from nature to match your desire. Below are the 3 categories of wood selections; Classic, Modern, and Exotic. Choose the type of wood that catch your eyes and captures your heart.
How it Works
Ruggy is configured in a manner different from any wall hanger product. It has a marble that runs inside the hanger.
It's supported by a double-sided tape for fast and easy installation.
When sliding in any type of fabric, the marble wedges the material against the tongue of the hanger, causing it to hang tight. To release, hold the fabric and pull gently to either side.
Remove One Scarf at a Time!
NO Sliding, No Wrinkles, NO Dents
Become Part of Ruggy
It takes purchasing power to implement meaningful change. A fully-funded Kickstarter will allow us to introduce Ruggy to the world. We want your opinions, suggestions, and contributions. Everyone can find a use for Ruggy, and the potential is endless. With your support we can bring Ruggy to every home, and make a difference in the way we live. Become a part of Ruggy and help our vision come true.
Risks and challenges
Product development is never risk free. However, we are confident about our capability to bring this product to your home on time. We are consistently monitoring the project and working hard to overcome any unexpected obstacle.
Our manufacturers are currently awaiting the completion of this campaign to start fulfilling the orders. We will do everything in our power to achieve on-time delivery, and we will reach out concerning any unforeseen circumstances. If you have any questions about the project development please don't hesitate to ask. We are striving to be as transparent as possible.
We need your help to bring Ruggy to every home, so please help us spread the word and become a Ruggy ambassador!
Thank you for making this exciting project possible!
