Bushakan makes individually crafted hardwood glasses stands.

About this project

Our Kickstarter campaign is now over but you can still get a Bushakan Stand! Visit www.bushakan.com for more information.

_

Hello and thanks for your interest in our kickstarter campaign.  With your support, we want to help people organize their eyewear. Bushakan stands allow you to store your glasses in stands that are both beautiful and durable. We offer two versions of the stand - a 3-pocket hardwood stand and a 5-pocket hardwood stand.

The 3-pocket hardwood stand:

The 5-pocket hardwood stand:

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. 

The wood stands are cut from a single solid piece of 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 and size of eyewear. The bottom pocket of each stand is also larger than the other pockets for exceptionally large glasses or sunglasses

Each wood 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 to are cut out of the brass plate. Some of our rewards also allow you to personalize the 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.

A 3-pocket stand made from natural fibers (available in yellow, grey or red)

The fiber stands are made out of natural fibers, which are compressed with a water-based thermoset binder to form an eco-friendly, lightweight, strong composite.
