About

Sincere thanks to all of you. You have given us every reason to believe that we can make the Malko Bottle a reality!

We will give our best to come back soon. Sign up for our newsletter at malko.it and stay tuned.

And don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook , Instagram and Twitter.

 

 

     

We believe that a good reusable bottle can help people to improve their health and the environment.

MALKO bottle has an eco-friendly heart: it combines passion, functionality and design, with a detail-oriented approach using high quality materials. Thanks to the streamlined stainless steel body, MALKO bottle advocates simplicity and modernity. 

MALKO bottle is designed to offer a memorable drink experience, combining all the features you will ever need, in just one bottle . We all want easy access to hydration anywhere and anytime, but it is time to stop using disposable plastic bottles. 

MALKO bottle keeps your drink cold for up to 24 hours, or hot for up to 12 hours... and it is specifically designed to follow you throughout your day. 

  

 

 

 

                                       

 

 

 

 

                    

Thanks to our plastic rim, the feeling on your lips is like drinking from a glass without that annoying cold feeling you can get from most other steel products. Our solution is also very hygienic, as whenever the bottle is not in use, the rim is always protected by the lid. The rim allows for a quick and easy fill, leaving you safe from burns or spills. And of course, the large rim allows for and easy and fast wash every time.

We are thankful for this opportunity to launch our project and we believe that together, we can make a difference.

Risks and challenges

As a Kickstarter bakers before than being creators, we know what does it means respect the timeline and quality.
But when developing a new product, there are always inherent risks and challenges.

We work in very close collaboration with our manufacturers to ensure everything runs smoothly. In saying that, we’re confident in our ability to deliver on schedule and with the highest level of quality. Nevertheless, unexpected delays in production or delivery are always a possibility.
We promise to keep you informed on this every step of the way.

At this stage, we need our minimum goal to start the first production and bring Malko bottle to life, and bring in your hands.

So if you love Malko bottle, or just love our idea and our team, please back our campaign because only together we can take this amazing project to the realty!
