About

Y.O.D.A. CARBON in use
Y.O.D.A. CARBON in use

We are used to carrying multiple electrical devices everywhere we go. We don't realise that a large amount of energy is emitted from them and possibly being exposed to radiation. Y.O.D.A. was born to solve this problem by creating the first carbon weave products to shield you from these invisible dangers while giving you a very elegant design for the conscious consumer.

Why Carbon?

Carbon fiber has low thermal expansion which makes it a great material for blocking heat coming from your devices. Our Carbon Tile is made out of 3 layers of Carbon Fiber which is proven to have radiation blocking properties. 

We use carbon fiber leather because carbon fiber itself is super durable and adds an extra layer of quality to our Leather Cases.

Growing Safety Concerns of Potentially Harmful Effects of Electro Magnetic Waves from our Devices

This under-discussed problem has been covered in the NY Daily News, CBS, and studied by the University of British Columbia.

The Collection

We are offering our new collection at a 20-35% discount to our Kickstarter supporters.

Please note: All bags come with an adjustable, leather and felt shoulder strap (up to 30 inches).

Our philosophy: 

  • Obsession over the little details 
  • Be unique
  • Treat our customers (you) like family

YOUR CONTRIBUTION

We have spent the last 8 months designing this Y.O.D.A. collection and selecting the perfect leather and felt to bring you a line of cases that are durable and safe, but also beautiful.

All our Y.O.D.A cases feature our Carbon Leather Weave & 100% Natural Wool Felt. This Carbon Leather Weave is constructed from actual pieces of leather bonded together in a proprietary chemical process. You won’t find this leather and felt anywhere but here. 

We have received final prototypes and are now ready to start production. We just need your help to meet the minimum order quantity ($15,000) for our custom leather and felt from our suppliers and begin production.

Risks and challenges

We have years of experience when it comes to designing accessories and have done our best to predict issues that may arise in the production process. Still, this doesn’t mean we are immune to the risks and issues that the handmade production process of our Y.O.D.As may create.

Depending on the availability of these high-quality materials we’ve listed, delays in delivery, production, or any other issues that may arise, there may be a possibility of backers receiving our Y.O.D.A cases later than we anticipate although we have already added a buffer time in delivery. We will do our best to address these issues if they arise and be as transparent as possible to our backers when problems do arise. Backers will be consistently notified as the production process goes on through Kickstarter in order to remain communicative and honest.
