We added 3 more designs for ladies that can be chosen in Random pack.
Inspired by classic 8-bit video games, chewing gum and time spent with friends, these things became a symbol of an era for our generation. Now we want to create socks that can fill up our life with colors and bring back those happy days of joy. It is not nostalgy, it is an attempt to make a vivid acessory for everyday life that will make people smile and feel awesome.
We invite you to become our partners and invest in new collection.
These are designs we prepared:
Why socks? Socks are an everyday item that can make you feel great. Bright socks will brighten your day. Such a small piece of cloth can make feel you awesome. So, why not?
In addition, similar pair of socks available in shopping malls or online costs about $10-30. At the same time, the price of a pair of our socks is about $4. We can afford it because we save on marketing and renting the storage. We also have a manufactory to sew our production, but now it needs to be renovated.

Risks and challenges
Last year we accomplished a lot. We found pure cotton that is shipped from India and a factory that produces our socks in Western Ukraine. We cooperate with talented designers from Italy and Ukraine. They help us to create awesome designs. For half a year we were working on reaching high quality of our socks to launch first collection.
However, as in every project, some risks can arise before starting new collection. We divide risks on several groups:
Material Sourcing. We are always in a process of trying new fabrics and looking for new opportunities. Now we want to make a higher quality of sewing and better fabric for our socks. The risk is that it can take a little bit more time than planned, but we are able to cope with this.
Fulfilment. It is needed to say that we have capacities to produce socks. We only need to order fabric, and plan the manufacturing process. As we already saw the work of factories, we know that the process can take more time than expected. Sometimes you can not plan every detail. However, we will do all the necessary things that depend on us.
High demand. We believe that a good idea can light millions to share it and become interested in it. So, despite of our planning, it is possible that we would get more orders than expected. In this situation we will invite more personnel to get in time.
If any challenges occur, we will keep in touch with all backers to keep you posted every step of the way. We are dedicated to you as to backers and our future customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
