The Back Story
Trivae 1.0 was originally dreamed up by Svetlana and her sister, Ruslana. They're avid cooks who finally got tired of doing what they called "the kitchen dance" (aka the dance between the stove and the sink, to drop the lid to stir, spice and taste their food while cooking). When they couldn't find a product to solve that problem, the sisters, along with Svetlana's best friend (and business partner), Rebecca, decided to create it.
During the creative and design process, Trivae became so much more than just a simple lid holder. After the initial design was finalized, Svetlana and Rebecca, took to the Kickstarter community to help bring the product to life.
That's right, we've been here before and our first campaign was an amazing experience. It was a big learning curve (of course) and we hit a few snags along the way (who hasn't!) but in the end we made it work and got our first shipment of product manufactured. We had our hands full (and a huge blast) shipping out all of the orders to the wonderful group of backers who took a chance on us and helped bring the very first version of our product to market.
Now a few years later, three sold out production runs and a boatload of lessons under our belt, we're back to Kickstarter again with big plans! We've had so much positive feedback both from backers of our original campaign and customers since then who've shared with us how much better and easier it is to cook with their Trivae. Here's what some of them had to say:
We absolutely love that we're helping people solving life's pesky little cooking problems and making their lives easier in the process. We want to bring Trivaes to as many homes and kitchens as possible. In order to do that, we've made some design changes that will make it lighter, more sleek and easier to use. The reduced weight of the product will also create additional cost savings in shipping, and those are savings that we'll be able to pass directly on to our customers. Unfortunately, these design changes require new tooling and that's where we need your help. The funds we raise through this campaign will help to fund production tooling with the remainder going towards our first production run of Trivae 2.0.
The Final Product
All of the changes have now been incorporated into the new CAD design by our engineers. Check out what the final product will look like in all three of our base color options.
The end result will be a product that is lightweight, durable, easy to use and will stylishly travel from the kitchen to the table with you. You'll love it, we promise!
We've crafted some awesome rewards for you to choose from! We think you'll love them but if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, email us and we'll see if we can make it happen for you!
Risks and challenges
While manufacturing a product can be a daunting and exacting task, this isn't our first rodeo! With one successful campaign funded and fulfilled under our belts, we've learned a lot about what it takes to bring a product to market and we've spent the last few years smoothing out our production and fulfillment processes and strengthening our manufacturing relationships. However, we also know we wouldn't be here without the Kickstarter community and we take the promises we make to our backers seriously. We are a team of highly educated and motivated individuals who want to bring Trivae to you and will continue to work tirelessly to make this product a reality! With all of these factors combined, we feel confident that we will be able to run a great campaign, complete this project to our high standard and deliver your exciting rewards to you!
Nevertheless, if we encounter any issues that will affect you, you will be the first to know. We're not interested in hiding anything. Full transparency, honesty and making our customers happy are values we hold dear- they've become the cornerstones of the business we've built. So we hope that you will decide to lend us your support to bring Trivae 2.0 to life and rest assured that we are doing everything we can to get your rewards into your hands as soon as possible! :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
