The patent pending Mina & Vine Nursing Scarf provides style and versatility before, during and after nursing. The first and only of its kind to be designed with a magnetic closure and smart fabric technology, going from nursing cover to stylish accessory is a breeze. And speaking of breeze, we use a fabric that is scientifically proven to keep you cool and regulate your body temperature. Nursing has never been so cool!

Risks and challenges

At Mina & Vine, every thread, button, tag, fabric fiber, etc. has been researched to the ends of the earth ensuring an outcome of the best possible product. However, as with any small business, there are always challenges. Even with all our testing and countless conversations with our supply chain, there is always the possibility of our production not going as planned.

1. Manufacturing & Fabric Printing problems – Manufacturing and fabric printing can require a lot of trial and error, with cost of materials and availability of essential tools changing regularly. This is why we have built in a margin for error into our Kickstarter goal. We have been tirelessly working for months coordinating each component of our supply chain and have full confidence in the partners we have selected. Lucky for us, should an issue arise, they quickly respond to texts ;).
2. Design flaws – While we have gone to every effort to design the coolest nursing cover ever, perfect for the mama on the go, the reality is, there is always a possibility of hitting a snag or two. That means that unpredictable problems with the design might come up. We've worked through many issues before and do not plan on stopping if we hit a road bump. Please know that we will always keep you updated of new developments.
3. Illness / injury / death – Unlikely, but this is a small team, and it is always possible that something could happen to one of us. In the event of something getting in the way of one us completing the project, we are all committed to pulling together, picking up the slack, and ensuring this project gets done. Period.

We look forward to keeping you all updated and following along with our journey. Thank you for supporting Mina & Vine!

Friends & Founders,
Anita & Brittany
