About this project

You live a multi-tasking lifestyle. You need your clothes to keep up with you. Buki is a collection of luxurious technical sportswear for everyday. There are brands that make technical sportswear for the gym, but we make technical sportswear for every single day of your life. You can now wear comfort and performance from the workday to the weekend. 

Buki is crafted with our proprietary Japanese fiber technology, Kinoki-3.0™, and it performs unlike anything you've ever experienced: epic moisture-management to keep you dry, thermoregulation to keep you in your comfort zone, dynamic stretch & recovery to move with you, wrinkle-resistance so you can grab and go, with the ease of being machine washable. Welcome to the wardrobe revolution!

Buki is a luxurious technical sportswear collection for everyday. Designed in Seattle, experienced by you.

WHAT IS BUKI?

Buki is a luxury collection of high-tech sportswear that is designed to power you through from the workday to the weekend and from running meetings to conquering the weekend.  Buki is the future of fashion: technical performance to keep you supremely comfortable.

Buki is powered by our state-of-the-art fiber technology, Kinoki-3.0™, which provides "next level" performance functionality at levels not currently available on the market. The entire collection is wrinkle-resistant, breathable, quick-drying, moisture-wicking, thermoregulating, anti-pill, and machine washable.  

We developed Kinoki-3.0™ with the leading fiber innovation company in the world (located in Japan), and when we saw our collection come to life, we couldn't wait to share it with you.  We couldn't wait for you to experience the luxury of comfort and the comfort of performance. 

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

In Japanese, 'Buki' means 'defend and protect', which is what our proprietary Kinoki-3.0™ fibers do for you - they defend and protect you from the elements.  Buki takes performance apparel to the next level because it is technical by construction (our technology is embedded in the fibers), not by dipping or coating the fabrics in harmful chemicals, which can soak into your skin, like other technical fabrics. 

Buki is crafted with our proprietary Japanese fiber technology, Kinoki-3.0™.

Buki is engineered to move with you, wick moisture to keep you dry, keep your body in its temperature regulated comfort zone, and keep you on the move from your morning coffee to your evening nightcap.  No ironing, no dry-cleaning!  

THE COLLECTION

To showcase Buki for Kickstarter, we chose to feature our softest and most luxurious technical fabric, Kinoki-3.0™ Luxe, in a curated collection of the four absolute must-have pieces that you cannot live without: T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, Hoodie, and Pant:

Go ahead, mix and match these must-haves to your heart’s content. We dare you to try wearing anything else after you’ve felt the magic of Kinoki-3.0™ Luxe fabric on your skin. It is so soft, you'll never want to wear anything else. 

The Buki T-Shirt is so soft and supple and yet powerful enough to keep you in your comfort zone with thermoregulation and epic moisture-management for everyday comfort.

Once you wear the Buki Pant, you won't want to wear anything else. And that's fine by us.

We took the loungey weekend vibe and styled it up a bit (actually a lot) with our Hoodie for him and her.

We had so many people tell us that they wanted to cocoon themselves in our softest and most luxurious fabric, Kinoki-3.0™ Luxe, that we created a sumptuous blanket, the limited edition Buki Blanket, to do just that.  It is supremely soft, exceptionally luxurious, and perfectly suited for lounging at-home or layovers abroad. 

The Buki Blanket is supremely comfortable and keeps your body in its thermoregulated comfort zone.

The lush hand, and generous size, of the Buki Blanket also makes for an elegant Travel Wrap. Imagine traveling with the comfort of a supremely soft travel wrap that is designed to keep you cocooned in your thermoregulated comfort zone.  And it is machine washable (of course)! 

The lush Buki Blanket also makes a supremely soft, luxurious Travel Wrap.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR BUKI?

Our inaugural collection of high-tech sportswear for everyday is just the start of our wardrobe revolution. We have some very exciting things to look forward to in our spring development: technical tees, dresses, and a pant that feels like a sweat pant but looks like a trouser -- all made with our innovative Kinoki-3.0™ fiber technology.

We’d love to keep making innovative high-tech sportswear, but we can’t do it without you. With your help, we’ll be able to realize our dream of creating hyper-functional, easy-care sportswear for modern life.

OUR FOUNDER 

Our founder, Joey Rodolfo, is a seasoned apparel industry veteran with a proven track record of 30+ years in the business: He founded Cutter & Buck, Bench Co., and JR 1879; he also led the Men's Design Team for Tommy Bahama for over 10 years.  He has been researching fiber technology for years, looking for the perfect way to incorporate it into men's and women's apparel. He believes the time has come to expect more from our clothes and that they should work as hard as we do. He believed there was a better way, so he created Buki. Welcome to the wardrobe revolution!

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

The extraordinary properties of Buki clothing are in our cutting edge fiber technology development. We have a proven track record for creating and delivering outstanding apparel and are seasoned pros in the apparel industry. Our production partner is a vertical factory that I've worked with for over 20 years. This makes our production cost effective, time effective and sustainable with minimal impact on the environment.

Our track record makes us completely confident we are able to fulfill any number of orders in a timely fashion (pun intended).
