About

International Shipping

International backers will be responsible for applicable tariffs and customs fees.

The 250ml Blue Republic Artesian Water orb, is our iconic product that sees innovation and style collaborating to form a product like no other. With a circumference of only 84.99mm it is the ultimate portable accessory that fits snugly in the palm of your hand.

The Product

Offering those who enjoy the finer things in life a product they can covet, and once attained...they cherish. Blue Republic Artesian Water not only embraces opulence, but strives to add substance to it.

Design Inspiration

The Orb is a representation of community, through our planet which is represented in the orb's shape. The silver dome shaped closure is an abstract representation of the earth's polar ice caps, a nod to the greatest environmental threat we face, global warming. Our logo and brand on the bottle then strives to make a difference by offering total commitment to supporting efforts to protect our beautiful planet and it's inhabitants. Offering our shield in service to the planet.

What we need?

In a nutshell what we need is to turn our prototype into a product that is available globally. We have gone through a long process designing and tweaking our bottle, and the materials that go into it. The result is a bottle whose beauty is only surpassed by the world class quality water inside it.

THE SOURCE: Cradock, South Africa

From the point rainwater hits the ground and seeps through layer upon layer of dolomite and clay the water is being engineered and balanced so as to have the right minerals and Ph level.

This process may take hundreds of years, but this is the way of nature... never rushed...just the most credible bench mark for perfection. What finally rises out of our aquifer is one of the most remarkable waters in the world.

Production Schedule

We will ship in September 2015. Here is the production schedule for delivery:

  • April: Make final product refinements.
  • May: Finalize with bottle manufacturing facility.
  • Mid May: Begin production of first batch of bottles.
  • End of June: Finalize production of bottles.
  • July: First batch is shipped out to our factory in South Africa to be filled and packed.
  • August: Finalising production run.
  • September: Ready to ship to our Kickstarter backers!

Logistics

The funds will be used to produce up to 50 000 units of Blue Republic Artesian Water. 

Bottles will be shipped to South Africa and filled at our plant in the Karoo. From there stock will be sent to our Kickstarter backers and also sold to key distributors and 5-7 star hotels in South Africa, UAE, China, France, Switzerland and the United States. Our water has a brilliant mineral composition, and coupled with our packaging, it is positioned to compete with the likes of Voss and Perrier.

Profitability per unit is excellent while remaining competitive from a price point of view.

Risks and challenges

SHIP DATE
We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.

PRODUCT
One risk lies in prototyping which has been addressed because the founders already invested in prototyping for a glass and PETG bottle for the design. Insuring that the product will be manufactured as advertised with high quality materials.
