Invisible Pocket Tank & Crop Tops

Ravee Apparel has taken the traditional tank top and enhanced every aspect:

Function: Equipped with invisible pockets - our patent-pending design has unrivaled function. Two hidden zipper compartments allow you to secure your keys, wallet, smartphone (including iPhone 5), and any other belongings. Best of all, our pockets don't bulge or flop around. Our tanks and crops allow you to keep your hands free and valuables safe!

Material: Made from high quality Lycra - a light, stretchy, sweatproof material - our tank and crop tops give you unparalleled comfort and complement all body types. Cotton just can’t keep up.

Versatility: A gym workout, wild tailgate, music festival or just a day at the beach - Ravee Apparel’s tank and crop tops are ideal for a wide variety of activities.

Design: Ravee Apparel offers our tank and crop tops in a diverse range of colors and prints. There is an option for everyone!

Customization: We can also create custom designs and prints for Sports TeamsFraternities, Sororities, and any other organization looking for superior apparel that stands out. Through dye sublimation printing, our designs won’t crack or fade like traditional silk-screened clothing. 

Our Tanks & Crops:

NOTE: All patterns and color combinations below are available for BOTH men and women (tank and crop tops). In addition, for the premium tanks, you have the option to choose any featured trim & embroidery color. For further customization options, check out our "ONE OF A KIND" reward.

Funding:

Your support is needed to get Ravee Apparel off the ground! Funds will be used to:

  • Purchase our own dye sublimation printer, which will allow us to create custom prints and colors at a much lower cost. ($15,000)
  • Purchase vendor tables at music festivals and create a professional website with an online store. This will expand our market and deliver our product to more happy customers! ($2,500)
  • Purchase materials (zippers, fabric, thread) in wholesale quantities. Lower wholesale prices will enable us to keep prices reasonable and offer customers a wider variety of colors and prints. ($2,500)
  • Additional funds will allow us to improve current designs and experiment with new apparel (shorts, t shirts, etc). The options are endless! ($5000+)

Background:

Frustrated after losing my phone at Ultra Music Festival two years in a row, I decided to create the perfect tank and crop top for such an occasion. Working with my college roommate and his brother, we collaborated with fashion professionals from New York City and Miami to turn our vision into a prototype. After a year of hard work, we created a full line of tank and crop tops that feel as good as they look. 

It would’ve been impossible without you!

Tim Yingling- Our videographer/ editor took time out of his busy schedule to fly down to Miami to shoot the Ravee Apparel video. His positive attitude and work ethic made him a pleasure to work with.

Elvin, Rosa, Dimitrios & Co- Since our first prototype, this group of individuals has devoted countless hours to turning our ideas into a reality. Rave Apparel would not exist without them - thanks for all of your hard work!

Daniel Litman (DJ DLIT) & DBT- Your energy is contagious. Your beats are unmatched. You are going to do big things! We look forward to working with you again! 

Ravee Models / Actors- A huge thank you to all of our friends who are featured in our photos and video. We hope you had as much fun shooting as we did! Shout out to our featured actors - Adam Frater, Tori Vande Vegte, Kara Bolon - great job!

Robert Curran- Thank you for being so supportive and understanding throughout the project, and most of all, letting us film at your beautiful home. Despite the blood, police, and angry neighbors, you were very welcoming and the best host we could have asked for.

Evan Humphries, Nicole Guarino, & Breech- Thank you for being budget sensitive, prompt, and generous! We look forward to doing business with you!

Lorrae Bradbury AKA @sluttygrlprobs- Thanks for all of your tweets during our campaign! We look forward to helping support the launch of your website! Everyone follow Lorrae's infamous twitter account. Even a classy lady can appreciate a slutty girl problem! www.twitter.com/sluttygrlprobs 

Friends, Family, and Backers- Thank you for believing in us and giving us the chance to succeed!

Risks and challenges

Expanding our product line--Creating new and innovative clothing products is not easy, making them look good is even harder. One of our main challenges will be continuing to produce new apparel that is not only appealing to the consumer, but also maintains the standard of style and innovation set by our first line.

FAQ

  • At the conclusion of the campaign, we will send out a survey collecting your size, design, cut (tank or crop top), and shipping address. When choosing a design, make sure that you purchase the corresponding reward. Designs are categorized into Basic, Premium, and Kickstarter Limited Edition.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! To purchase multiple tanks & crops pledge the corresponding amount. For instance, to purchase 1 Basic Tank and 1 Premium Tank, pledge $71 ($33+$38=$71). When selecting a reward, select the more expensive reward, in this case, Premium Tank/Crop. Feel free to send us a message beforehand to confirm your order.

    Unforunately, Kickstarter does not let you buy multiple rewards, so this is the best way to purchase several tanks/crops. Any combination of rewards can be chosen.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, we will combine shipping on multiple orders. If you are attending one of the Launch Parties or live in Miami we offer local pick up.
