Who Are We?
We're Marsh and Bobby: Two guys from Colorado that have made Burlington, VT home. We love our beverages and think that the Mason Jar is the best drinking vessel that exists. We've teamed up to bring you a functional and sexy mason jar mug: The Holdster. We're asking for your help in funding our first full-scale production run to take this product to the rest of the world.
What is the Holdster?
The Holdster improves upon on the best drinking vessel available: the mason jar. Cheap, indestructible, heat-resistant, flavor neutral, healthy, and aesthetically beautiful, mason jars are an icon of American made products. The Holdster slips onto standard wide-mouth mason jars and acts as an insulating sleeve so you can use them for all of your beverage needs: coffee, tea... mulled wine, Hot Scotchie, beer, cocktails, chocolate milk; or whatever your fancy. The Holdster’s classic, utilitarian look gives it an air of a nostalgic past when products were of real quality and built to last a lifetime.
So Marsh: Why Holdster?
"Like many individuals who are awake, I realized the benefits of using mason jars for...just about everything. The only problem was that I love drinking coffee- and coffee is served HOT. There are plenty of Coozies, Coolies, and Cozies out there to solve this problem but I don’t have a pony tail or a mustache and therefore can’t crochet myself a neon cozie and get away with it. So I designed a sexy alternative: Leather, thread, and copper never looked so good- the Holdster was born."
It has taken months and countless prototypes to end up with the Holdster models 01 thru 04. We have worked out every detail and finally have a manufacturing-ready product. Our manufacturers in Mt. Hope, OH supply our leather and do the heavy machine work for us so that we can focus on the hand-stitching and riveting here in Burlington, VT. We are looking to raise $5,500 to pay for the first full-scale production run of Holdsters. We appreciate your support and hope that you will enjoy drinking from a Holdster as much as we do.
