Our business is called Button Fox, we specialise in creating high quality custom apparel, producing handmade designs & developing our own brand of clothing, accessories & collectables that we showcase to fans at unique events all over the world! Creating your own apparel by hand is time consuming, you can't always produce all the ideas you want & material expenses do start to add up. Over the last 6 years we've worked hard every day putting everything we make directly back into growing the business & trying to turn it into something special that everyone can enjoy.
Being only a small team of two means that the items we make become limited & it restricts us from being able to create. This has become the reason we turn to Kickstarter as a pathway to consider manufacturing as an option. It would allow us to provide more available stock to more people & make the price much more affordable. We've already developed the pattern, made the sample, tested the product first hand, found a manufacturer & created brand new prototypes. All we need now is the interest to see whether the item is worth producing at a larger scale. The more love we receive in getting this project funded the more items we can think about developing in the future. It's a win for everyone!
Below are all the rewards we are offering along with a brief description so you can get a better idea of what you will be receiving depending on the pledge you make. We wanted to simplify the amount of rewards we offered to keep it less overwhelming & easier to choose the best reward for you.
Art by Super Shark Studios - These have been made exclusively for this kickstarter to promote the fox glider capes, the pins will be approximately 1.5 inches in size & they'll be made of hard enamel. The pins will come in two different styles, standard or glitter. (This is only a digital version to give you an idea of what the pins will look like).
This isn't just any long fox cape. Regularly we get asked by our customers about having this colour in stock & for some reason burgundy is always hard to find. For this kickstarter we have been able to source enough material to make a limited run that will goes towards getting our project funded. We'll have a total of 10 available, they will all be hand made by us, have inside pockets, a black faux fur trim along the hood & our custom designed toggles. (The toggles have been updated to paws instead of fox heads).
This glider cape has many unique features that make it our most versatile creation to date. The photo is only the prototype at this stage, it will have faux fur trim on the hood which will be removable by a zip to achieve an alternative look. The cape itself is designed in a way that it will fit a large variety of sizes & appeal to all genders. We've even created our own custom fox tail zippers. Of course the cape also features our signature ears & fox head appliques beloved by our followers but perhaps it's best feature it is fully lined with soft fluffy minky. It provides amazing warmth in the cooler months & makes the cape extremely snugly to wear anywhere. It will come in two standard colours; grey with black lining or black with grey lining. To unlock more colour options all we need to do is meet the first couple of stretch goals down below.
The Fox Bomber Jacket is a brand new product that we've been excited to make available for quite some time now. It features our custom fox tail zips that can be found as the central zipper on the jacket along with the two outside pockets. It's fully lined, has a hidden inside pocket & is very comfortable to wear. On the back of the jacket there's an amazing Japanese style embroidery of our cute mascot by the artist MTQLS. The Fox Bomber Jacket will come in the colour burgundy as seen in the above photos & grey but we'll hopefully be adding more colour options as each stretch goal is unlocked. The outer coating material is made of an extra thick fleece that'll keep you warm & the fabric has stretch to it so the sizes will fit a large variety of people.
These are the goals we have set that are beyond our main kickstarter goal, if reached we'll reveal the next new goal as each previous goal is achieved. It'll mean we could put into production more products that've been hanging on a rack waiting patiently to be released.
Once we hit our first stretch goal you will unlock burgundy as a new colour option for all glider cape pledges. At the end of the kickstarter this will become an additional option when choosing the colour you want. *UNLOCKED*

It will take approximately 1 - 2 months to complete production & be imported. The estimated arrival date will be September, once the finished product is in our hands we will begin shipping them all out to the backers in an orderly fashion. Any funds over the original goal that are acquired will be put towards the production of stretch goals & any funds beyond that will be reinvested into creating more great products.
