About

 Our story- Why Women of Colours?  

We are not al ‘beige’ #benniebeige  

https://www.facebook.com/WomenOfColours/

http://www.womenofcolours.com/

Women of Colours offers everyday bras and undies in six carefully chosen skin tones. In the year 2017 a woman has only one option for skin toned underwear namely beige. Other shades are not or hardly available. And that's too bad, because it has a practical use: skin toned lingerie remains invisible under tight en light-colored clothing.  

That’s nice but that convenience is not available for the thousands of beautyful women in Europe with a different shade of skin. As you can see in the Dutch YoMo! YouTube films below:

Part 1:'Why I can't find a bra in my 'nude'?'

Part 2: #benniebeige

With Women of Colours we want to change that! Whether you’re a rich pure chocolate or a pale rose; we have a ‘nude’ for you. #benniebeige

 

 First Collection  

We start our first collection with a comfortable T-shirt bra and three types of undies; hipster, thong and basic knickers in six shades. At a later stage we will extend the collection with more types of bras, undies, skin tones, and other products. The cooperation with the experienced lingerie designer Fabienne Hansoul guarantees high quality and perfect fit. The production of the lingerie takes place in Europe and the quality is guarded by myself personally on site. The factory makes only lingerie for the better and exclusive brands.

Sizing  

Women of Colours is pro body positivity and our long term goal is to be very inclusive with our sizing range. We will extend our sizes as soon as possible.  Our initial size range will be:

UNDIES: EU S, M, L, XL 

BRAS: EU cup B, C, D, E, F  

You will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to select your size upon the successful conclusion of our campaign.

 

 Why crowdfunding  

Women of Colours has been a work in progress and has been self-funded by the founder for the past 5 years. Where do we stand today:

  • research

    • patternmaking and prototyping

    • developed unique colors

    • website

   • foto’s / film

   • branding

So far we are ready! We now need your help getting the rest of this project off the ground by helping to support the production manufacturing of our garments. We have to meet minimums. The more we raise, the wider selection of sizes we can create for women. Our minimum goal is €40.000 – we are going to use this for:

• production,

• developing / designing new types of bras and undies,

• matarials

,• branding,

• promotion,

• fees kickstarter,

• packaging.

We are offering great rewards for every level of giving. You're not only the first to get the opportunity to try out Women of Colours lingerie, but you are also  able to get specialy for Women of Colours **bonus** lingerie SAPPH, one of our great partners in this adventure.

Risks and challenges

We’ve spent the last three years working with our partners to alleviate as many risks as possible. As a startup, however, we are aware that a number of obstacles may still appear along the way. We will share updates with backers regarding challenges not limited to but including:

1. Shipping Date - In choosing a factory one of our key criteria was assessing production capacity, capability and constraint. Our factory is ready for production once we give the word and I am confident that we will ship by the estimated dates, but there is always a possibility for a hiccup in the manufacturing process and thus, a chance that things will take longer than planned.

2. Product Alterations - As we refine this initial collection, slight changes may be made but we will be diligent in making sure that everything is done to the highest quality standards.

3. Supplier Coordination - We are working with a variety of suppliers and factories to source the best materials and ensure that your products are manufactured properly.
