Risks and challenges

We have been working smart and working hard over the past year to secure relationships with our amazing production partners!

Nonetheless, there are always risks when launching a new product.

1. Slow delivery of materials or delay in production. We don't anticipate this being a problem, especially since we are very confident in our production partners. We overestimated how much time we would need to make and deliver the MANTLES so hopefully we will surprise you with an earlier delivery date. However, things happen and a delay is always a risk. We will be very communicative if we come up against any issues!

Note: Because this is an accessory typically work in the fall and winter months, any delays we encounter should not get in the way of our backers having their MANTLES by fall 2015. Our intention is to get them to you on or before our goal date! And we will keep you posted on our progress!
