Nowadays we take our Mac, iPad and iPhone pretty much everywhere. They are almost an extension of our personality. They say something about us, what we like, even what we don’t. We feel that the same holds true for the cases we carry them in.
- Smart design. As designers and architects, the design of everything we do plays a very important role. Furthermore, we believe that the leather goods we design must not only be visually appealing but also smart, practical. A concept that we applied to each good of the iCollection.
- Hand crafted. What is an object without a character? Our artisans with over 30 years of experience take the leather goods through every step, paying attention to detail and producing a rich, unique leather case.
- Premium genuine leather. Over the long run leather outlasts almost any other material. The cases are hand crafted using vegetable tanned leather. We pick and select one leather hide a time to ensure it is up to our high standards.
- Wholesale price. We want to say no to mass production and offer you a set of premium leather goods at up to 40% less. By offering you this project on Kickstarer, we cut out the middleman, avoid retail markups and therefore offer you a high quality collection at a great value.
- Our experience. Our first two successful Kickstarter projects received over 200 backers from around the world which today proudly carry Chivote goods. This has allowed our artisans and us to learn a lot. We now have the know how and we are confident in the quality of the goods that have a Chivote logo.
Every Item is carefully handcrafted by artisans with years of experience in creating high quality leather goods. Just as our slogan 'Dare to be different', we want each of our goods to stand out through its design and craftsmanship.
We believe that details matter. Each leather good is hand packed with care by us.
Last year we launched our first Kickstarter project, a large, versatile leather bag to carry all your gadgets as well as daily objects! Learning from our initial project, we brought out the world’s first two sided backpack. After two successful projects, both delivered on time and a lot of positive feedback making all this experience worthwhile, we want to share with you the iCollection.
For the past months we focused on creating an elegant collection of smaller leather goods that would keep your devices safe even when you don’t want to carry them in a larger bag, and also have that extra bit of functionality so you could get the most out of them, wherever you go.
Risks and challenges
We've learnt many valuable lessons from our first two successful projects which we delivered on time to over two hundred happy backers! Using this experience and careful planning we have done our best to reduce the risks of possible delays so that you can enjoy your new Chivote goods as soon as possible.
We have worked with our leather suppliers and artisans on several occasions before and we are firm believers in their ability to deliver the highest quality, handmade products in accordance to our confirmed production schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
