What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Firstly, 

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to look through our Kickstarter.

 We hope you support our journey and help Stowaway Supply Co become and new bench mark in leather product around the world. Stowaway Supply Co is a brand dedicated to creating the highest quality products through superior design. 

By using the highest quality, responsibly sourced materials coupled with a simplistic design mantra we believe we have created a range of leather products like no other. Utilizing CNC Laser technology we cut and engrave our leather to meet our high standard and precision. This laser cutting technology also gives all our products a burnt sealed edge stopping the leather sides from fraying and further lengthening the life cycle of this product. 

 Stowaway Supply Co prides itself in its use of local manufacturers within the UK and the standard in which these partners work to creating products of a quality our customers are proud to wear day in day out at all occasions around the world.For the past 4 Years we have been slowly trickle feeding our products into the market and keeping close eye on their condition and aging process up to this point so we can confidently say we do believe these are the best leather products you can buy. Please help us to meet our goal to bring a whole range of uncompromising quality products to the market at a great value price point.

Goal.

Campaign Goal: To raise £1000 for necessary materials and hardware to bring some of the toughest quality leather goods to the market at an affordable price. 

Stretch Goal 2: At 1500 we will be able to meet the order quantities required to give our backers the opportunity of Brown (Australian Nut) Belts in 5mm thick Bridle butt. and just like our Tan and Black Belts, these are of the highest quality UK sourced leather.  

Stretch Goal 3: At £5000 we will have a sizable deposit to bring our own laser cutter in house big enough to manufacture all our goods, As a thank you we will number each item with the backers pledge as a reminder you where one of the first people to support our project. Etching will appear as KS000 number depending on how early you get your pledge in.

Pricing and Pledges.

The Details. 

1 - The Leather - We use only the best bridle butt hides hand-picked from one of the UKs finest tanners, This ensures great finish, strength and consistency of thickness. Key hooks and Key rings 3-3.5mm leather, Belts 5-5.5mm Leather.  

2 - The Hardware - We have spent a lot of time, trial and error, and spared no expense trying to find the best buckles, snap hooks, and Chicago screws for our leather goods and can honestly say the products on offer in this campaign feature only the best. All our hardware has been finished with a nickel plating for long-lasting durability and a refined yet hardworking aesthetic.  

3 - The Design - The Devil is in the detail, take this as you may but at Stowaway Supply Co we look at over detailed products as more opportunities for failure or added cost. This is why we have specifically chosen to stick to a strict less is more policy. giving our products the edge when it comes to tactility, longevity, and durability.

Sizing.

Belts - All our belts are sized accordingly with your usual jean/trouser size. e.g a 34" Waist jean go for a 34" inch waist belt. All our belts have sizing 3 inch down and 2 up, so a 34 inch belt will go down to 31" without having to punch any more holes and up to a 36" on the last hole. Please note due to laser cutter sizes, our belts only go to 38" at the minute, unless you would like a hand cut belt that is later etched. 

Key Hooks - Our key hooks are sized to fit upto a 2" (51mm) wide belt or strapping. 

Key Rings - Our key rings come standard with a 1.5" (38mm) split ring, however the Chicago screw construction allows for easy and easy change for larger or smaller key rings. 

See More on sizing at the Stowaway supply co Website.

Leather Disclaimer. 

Leather is a natural product, so although we do make sure and source the best quality hides, it is worth noting that slight differences in colour, stretch marks, and scars to appear from time to time, personally we think this adds to the character of our products. However we want to point it out all the same.

 Estimated delivery date late April.

Risks and challenges

As with bringing any product to market there is many challenges and risks, the main risk for us is manufacturers availability, and stock availability, In order to combat any of these risks if they arise we have not only found suppliers and manufacturers that can handle very large volume, but also back up suppliers and manufacturers in case of any unforseen circumstances.
