About this project

_

Hello and thanks for your interest in our kickstarter campaign.  With your support, we want to help people organize their glasses and sunglasses. The Bushakan stand allows you to store your glasses in a solid wood stand that is both beautiful and durable. We offer two versions of the stand.

The first holds 3 pairs of glasses or sunglasses_

_

_

The second holds 5 pairs of glasses or sunglasses_

_

Our goal was to make a great product that would serve the dual purpose of organizing your glasses and act as a design piece in your home. 

Each stand is cut from a single solid piece of ash hardwood. The pockets are carved out, revealing both the beauty of the wood and providing the perfect compartments for your glasses. 

We did extensive testing to determine the optimal size for the pockets.  The pockets are large enough to fit almost any style of glasses, even ones containing larger lenses and/or frames. The bottom pocket of each stand is also larger than the other pockets, for exceptionally large glasses or sunglasses.

_

UPDATE: Unlike in the images above, each stand will include two brass labels. The first label has "bushakan", the bushakan mark and "made in san francisco" engraved  onto the brass plate.  The second label is a custom label that we make for each stand - Your initials or the initials of the person that you're gifting the stand is cut out of the brass plate. Some of our rewards also allow you to get a label with your company name and/or logo on it.

WHERE WE ARE

We have been working on prototypes for the last 5 months and they are finally finished.  There is no comparable product on the market and we know that there is demand for such a product. With your support, we can bring the product to market.  

REWARDS

We have a wide range of rewards and would appreciate your contribution at any level.
