Bambooti | A Wooden Back For Your Mac

€21,138

328

                               

With a profile of just 0.7mm (which is around the thickness of a credit card) and a weight of 60 grams this product rests subtly on your Macbook. 

The skins marry both old school craftsmanship and cutting edge technology. After being laser cut, every skin is hand sanded to create a super smooth exterior.

All Bambooti skins are crafted from real wood. Like every tree in the forest, every Bambooti skin will have a different and unique grain pattern.

All skins are coated with a spray finish made of natural vegetable oils. This gives the rather raw wood a fair natural shine that allows the wooden skin to age beautifully over time - it also doubles as protection against water and dirt. 

Wood is a natural material that tends to bounce back to its original state, so we provided outline cuts to make sure the skins fit smoothly on all edges and curves of the MacBook.

By using the latest 3M technology, the skin goes on seamlessly but can easily be pulled off, adjusted or completely removed without leaving behind any sticky residue or damaging your MacBook.

We offer custom logo engravings and cutouts for you or your nature-loving company. Imagine your design, logo, or your companies logo laser engraved onto your skin! If you don’t have a logo we can simply customize your skin by lasering your name or your favourite quote onto it.

We only use sustainable woods coming from sustainably managed forests. Sustainability in this context means that the forest should still be there for your grandchildren and great grand-kids, able to soak up carbon emissions and keep our air clean for generations while protecting our wildlife.

 How to apply

 Easy to remove

Note

Every skin will have a different and unique grain pattern. Ofcourse, this means that the skin you’ll receive will look slightly different than the skins in the photographs. That is what makes your skin a one of a kind!

Pick the wood that matches you and choose to have it with or without our Bambooti logo cutout.

Want a skin with your own design or logo? Just add €10 to your pledge and we’ll create a custom skin for you with your own design or logo.

 Check the maximum size of your logo on the skin with our pdf templates.

If you’re looking to make an artistic statement with your MacBook then this option is perfect for you. This reward is for logos or designs that will cover more than 25% of the skin.

Not quite sure what you should put on your skin? Take a look at what we’ve collected so far. Get inspired by our Premium Design Series!

                               

On top of a regular Bambooti skin you will receive a pair of premium Bambooti sunglasses and a Bambooti iPhone case of your choice.

Which model do I own?

Survey

We will send out a survey at the end of the campaign where you can choose your wood and upload your logo/design if you choose a custom skin.

ATTENTION: Logo must be in VECTOR FORMAT (.ai, .eps, .pdf, .svg).
If you pledged for a PREMIUM DESIGN SKIN you will be able to choose your favourite in this survey. The same goes for the sunglasses and the iPhone cases in the FULL BAMBOOTI PACKAGE.

By the way, if you pledge for a skin, the MacBook is not included ☻

Order as many as you want!

You can order as many skins as you want, just make sure you pledge the right amount.
For example: If you would like to order 4 skins in the early bird reward level at €60. You simply pledge 4 x €60. Shipping will remain the same. In special cases however, such as when backers pledge for more than 5 skins, we reserve the right to ask for a bit more to ship the skins out at the end of the campaign. We will not be making money on shipping and we’ll be transparent about these costs!
ATTENTION: if you pledge for 4 custom skins, you will only be able to upload one design or logo

Shipping costs will be automatically calculated once you select a reward. Depending on where you live on the planet, shipping costs will vary.

We provide tracking as soon as we have your skin packaged and your shipping label slapped onto it!

 In special cases, such as when backers pledge for more than 5 skins, we reserve the right to ask for a bit more to ship the skins out. We will not be making money on shipping though and we’ll be transparent about these costs!

Please note that depending where you are in the world, there may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them when receiving the shipment.

The Founders
The Founders

This is us, friends Pieter Van Moll and Freek Gielen. Our story starts in Limburg, the green heart of Belgium. This is where we grew up and where we became inspired to create these subtle works of art.

For us, it’s about more than creating just skins and other natural products, it's about doing what we love and sharing it with you guys. We want to bring the best of nature, wherever you go. Making these awesome unique skins is just the cherry on top! 

We personally would like to thank everybody who’s given us an opportunity by checking out our project. Thank you so much for the support and …Welcome to the Bambooti Family! We’re extatic that you’ve joined us on our journey!

We feel extremely lucky. Our passion for nature inspired us to build this brand of natural, sustainable products. We love mixing nature with design and technology and we’ve spent months designing products on our MacBooks. It wasn’t long before we realized we could use our wood design talent to create something elegant for our MacBooks. Why not design a piece that would give your laptop some much needed character? 

At first, we wanted to create this product all by ourselves but after some trial and error we soon realised that in order to succesfully bring this product to life, we had to partner up with a manufacturer. We found the PERFECT one right here in EUROPE (UK).

The partnership and design is now all in place.

Ever since Bambooti was founded we envisioned being a company that is not only about making an environmental impact but also about creating a positive social impact around the world.

We believe that every single individual has the right to good sight. Poor vision affects more of our global community than we’d like – it’s a serious issue.

Billions of people around the world suffer from poor vision as a result of refractive error, which limits their ability to live a normal and productive life. In rich countries refractive errors are readily corrected by corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses, but in developing countries eyeglasses are primarily a luxury.

Because of the obvious link between good sight and the product we are focussing on besides the skins, namely Bambooti’s wooden optical eyewear, we decided to support non profit organization Eyes For The World from the start of our journey:

With Bambooti we tackle poor vision by helping Eyes For The World® provide self-adjustable glasses through distribution programmes in the developing world. Child Vision™ has developed self-adjustable glasses which the wearer is able to adjust until they can see clearly. These glasses are based on a fluid-filled lens technology.

Help us give the gift of sight for those in dire need.

 PRESS KIT


We need your support!

We want to thank you for having a look at our project and for helping us to make this dream a reality!

Also, we want to be completely honest. We need your help! Your support, and yes by support we mean your money (of course in exchange for something awesome), will be the driving force propelling us forward!

The important thing to remember with Kickstarter is, if we don't reach our full funding goal, no one wins ☹. By backing us today, you are securing a beautiful Bambooti skin and making sure you receive it as early as possible. You are also locking in the special Kickstarter prices that will not be there once the countdown ends.

Our reach only goes so far beyond our personal network. Please take two seconds to share our project on Facebook, Instagram,Twitter or send a few quick emails to friends and family. Your impact will be felt in helping this campaign!

THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

We are very confident in our ability to execute the necessary steps to run a successful campaign, and most importantly, to deliver the product in a timely fashion.

We spent over 3 months designing, developing and iterating to get to our finalized samples. Our trusted manufacturer is on stand-by, just waiting for us to break our funding goal and get the green light to start.

Thanks for all the support. No really! We are so excited to take this step with you guys, the Kickstarter community!

LEAD TIME & DELIVERY:
Knowing the exact timeline for production from start to finish is never an easy thing to judge. Thanks to the relationships we've built however, we're confident that we can finish all orders within 50 days (worst case) upon the conclusion of this campaign. In the case that any delays do arise all backers will be informed immediately and kept up to speed with all updates.

Shipping is one of the largest challenges with any project like this because it's one of the only aspects that we don't directly control. Shipping companies can make mistakes from time to time especially when packages are traveling across borders. However, we also understand that if a problem does present itself it's our duty to work with the shipping companies until you receive your skin.

If at any time you have questions or concerns then please email us at
