Risks and challenges
Like every other Kickstarter I’ve done my best to minimise any possible risk for you and your pledge.
I have fully realised the wallet design and have made a production quality run of sample wallets, which are being tested by friends and family (all with positive feedback).
I’ve had the clicking knife made up and tested, so cutting the blanks and producing accurate, repeatable patterns ready for stitching is no issue.
I own the machinery used for the laser cutting process, which gives me complete control over the quality of, and the personalised detailing of, every single wallet produced. For this project I am working with Magpie Accessories, an established, extremely local (same building) business who specialises in the design and manufacture of leather goods. They own all the equipment required to make the wallets in house.
The leather has been sourced from an established Derbyshire leather stockist with a national and international client list, thereby removing any concerns over supply and availability. All leathers come as a by product of the food industry.
The vegan leather wallets are made with cork sourced from the cork forests of Portugal. Cork leather has the same characteristics and properties of leather whist being 100% sustainable, recyclable, anti-microbial, water resistant and a carbon positive material. The forests have been managed for generations, often within the same families as one generation passes on the unique set of management and harvesting skills from parent to child.
For shipping I’ll be using Royal Mail, and I have the expertise of a friend who has worked in logistics and running a large webstore. Coupled with my own webstore experience, we should have no issues shipping out in a fast manner.
Currently I cannot see any problems in the manufacture, or delivery, of every single wallet. Short of an act of God, I should be able to deliver a high quality product on time. Even if it does mean a few late nights! :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
