If we hit our project goal of $7,700 we will be able to jump head first into the Cut and Sewn market by Spring of next year. Our focus is on manufacturing America which allows for us to create high quality short run collections. The only drawback is there are higher pre-production costs. With a successful Kickstarter Project, we would have covered all our manufacturing start up costs, become a contributing American Made Brand, and be able to make some of the best products on the market!

Annie Mulz is a metropolitan casual wear brand based on the concept of the “Animal in Man” was founded by Matthew Elijah O & Michael Toney in the spring of 2009. Since its inception Annie Mulz has steadily grown to be one of the most innovative and original emerging brands. 

Matthew & Mike began selling their shirts off a table on Newbury Street while still attending Northeastern University in Boston. What started as a cool idea, became a growth business when the duo edged out 55 other business on campus to be awarded a $10k grant for Annie Mulz. 

Rooted in creative culture Annie Mulz has worked with artists in all different mediums. The brand can be found on some of the music industries top artists including Ab-Soul, Big KRIT, Moe Pope, Evidence, Rasheed Chappell and more. In the press the label has been featured in countless publications most notably Complex Magazine and on MSNBC. 

After creating and curateing two highly succesful Pop-Up stores on Boston's coveted Newbury Street - we just opened our first Concept Store dubbed the "Kyoto Jungle" dedicated to creative and innovative culture.

This line is our first and long awaited Cut and Sew collection. Every garment in this collection is MADE IN AMERICA by local sewers and fabric makers. Our Kyoto Jungle Collection features 6 detailed color-blocked pieces that are made in limited runs. 

This collection is over 2 years in the making and the final step for Annie Mulz into the Cut and Sewn market. We have created a new best practice for producing garments in America. Based in Boston, the heart of the Northeast where the American textile revolution began, there are factories still operating and looking for work. Combine willing sewers and sustainable remnant designer cotton sourced from California and you get high quality, American Made street style...in only 6 weeks.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is in production. We are color matching sustainable fabrics Made in America to meet our needs, the challenge here is sourcing the total amount in a single color that we need. We are combatting this challenge by having multiple sourcing leads and carrying "Put Ups" on all the fabric we buy allowing us to have extra on hand in case we need to create more of a single garment.

After our project is successful the logistics work will start, as of right now we have bought enough fabric to meet the total reward amounts which are limited to 50 per style. If a single reward sells out we will need to create a new reward level, source and buy another runs worth of fabric to meet the demand. All seconds runs will be shipped Feb 1st.

These are the two main challenges that our project faces and we have calculated for what the outcomes may be. We are taking this very seriously and want to not only be successful but fully follow through and satisfy all our backers!

Today, we currently have all the materials necessary to produce our full collection run and we have already made all the samples. The lines ribbing and fabrics are sourced, bought, and waiting at our sewers. When this kickstarter is successful we will have the final products within 6 weeks!
