I hope you enjoyed the video. I tried to have fun with it. I'm really excited about Nomadik and love how Kickstarter makes this all possible.
Nomadik started out of a passion for bags and fine leather. I wanted to create a line that was modern, sophisticated, and timeless, yet with a unique bohemian take. Using art in a functional way is a challenge I continually attempt to conquer. The goal is to make high fashion products that are really well designed and crafted, yet reasonably priced.
I draw inspiration from my constant travels and integrate those ideas into an ever-changing, innovative approach for today's needs. Most of my products are the perfect size for laptops, iphones, ipads, etc. I'm obsessed with perfection and fine leather and I think it shows in my products. Everything I make is handmade from the finest luxe vegetable tanned leather. Many of my products have organic cotton on the inside with my one-of-a-kind hand block prints. I also try to use hidden magnetic enclosures for convenience and security. Here are examples of both of those:
About the Production:
Creating my pieces takes time. It's important to me to use only the best materials. All of my products are handmade by amazing people who I know, love, and work with directly. I believe that in order to keep the integrity of the products and production it's necessary to operate in this way.
About the Funding:
Raising these funds will help me not only put these pieces from this collection into production, but will also help me create my next collection. I'll be able to buy the leather, fabric, and hardware I need to keep making art with leather.
Rewards: Let's talk about rewards. One of the benefits of pledging is that you're able to get my products at wholesale prices. I tried to include a large number of rewards so that you can find something you like. I really appreciate your support and I'm going to try my best to get these rewards to you before Christmas. Please click on the pictures for more details like sizes, descriptions, and more photos.
Multiple items/Combination Rewards: If you'd like more then one item then just select one of the rewards and pledge the total amount of those 2 items. For example, if you want something from the $20 pledge + something from the $80 pledge then just select the $80 pledge but pledge $100 and send me a message. I hope that makes sense.

Risks and challenges
I've been designing and successfully producing for years. The only risk I see is time. Please keep in mind that my products are all done by hand and take a little time to create. I'm going to try and get all the rewards to people by Christmas but if there is a large number of orders, it might not be possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
