To make sure that the Addition Bag is durable and will last for years to come, we started with the best materials. We chose a traditional vegetable tanned leather, which is durable, and will also age overtime to become more beautiful.  

We also used the most reliable zippers on the market, YKK zippers, to ensure that the bag will last. For the interior of your bag, we have used organic cotton, which is durable and protective.

For the attachments, we chose high quality thermal insulation on the Chiller Attachment, to keep your food cool for up to 6 hours. For the Gym Attachment, we chose a hard wearing and easy to clean Polyester lining.

Simply choose 'Back this Project', select your pledge option and shipping destination, follow the Kickstarter instructions for payment details and you're done!  

Don't worry about color selection, we will follow up with you after the campaign to ensure you get the right combination.  

We have spent the past year designing, prototyping and testing to find the best solution. A series of interviews and workshops led us to a clean design, available in timeless colors. This will ensure your Addition Bag ages gracefully and will always be in style.  

We already have a trusted and reliable production partner in place, ready to bring Addition Bag to the market. Once we receive our funding we will begin production immediately.  

Our bags are produced in fair wage factories which adhere to ethical workplace standards. We are committed to working with manufacturing partners we know and trust, that we have built personal relationships with to ensure a trusted supply chain. 

We and our QA team will be on site at the factory to ensure every bag is manufactured to a high standard.

The Addition Bag is only the first of many products we would like to bring to the market. We hope to continue to expand our range of adaptable bags and accessories to continue to help make your daily carry easier.  

Once we have delivered to our Backers, we will launch our online store to supply a selection of bags and attachments in a range of colours, all of which will aim to help make your daily life easier 

Functional, Fashionable & Fair. That's our Formula.   

We approached Formula from a function first viewpoint, ensuring that our products can add real value to your daily life. 

Combining function with timeless clean design ensures a bag which will stay in style for years to come. 

By working directly with our suppliers and manufacturers, we can deliver high quality products for a fair price. We cut out the middle men and transfer the savings to you. 

Empower Women every day   

We want to use design to empower women to reach their goals, by providing high quality, functional and stylish products which make your daily life easier. 

Once we are established we will also commit to supporting causes which empower women around the world. So when you purchase a Formula product, you not only empower yourself, but other women too.

Simple, Quality.

We believe in simple products which work, we don't complicate our designs and only add what is necessary. This way we can create durable, high quality products that last.

We don't believe in wasteful seasonal fashion either, we want our products to last for years, to be at your side during your journey. So we aim to create simple, clean designs with timeless colors.

Why choose to Crowdfund? 

We understand that asking you to support us is a big ask, which is why we want to reassure our backers that we are fully committed to creating quality products and delivering them as soon as we can.

Using Kickstarter will give us direct feedback from our valued customers, and greater insight into your needs as we develop our future range. We will stay in regular contact with you as we go through the manufacturing process and update you on our key milestones.

Thank you to all of our friends, family, and backers who have supported and encouraged us throughout this whole process. We could not have done this without you! Also, we would like to thank the following people who have helped us throughout the campaign:

Please remember that because it is a natural leather product, each handbag may have slight variations in tone, marks or veins in the leather that should not be considered imperfections. 

Customs & Duties: Our international shipping hubs are purposed to help reduce complexities and duties (where applicable) associated with international shipments. 

Formula Studio is not responsible for any customs, duties or import fees associated with receiving your order.

Risks and challenges

Timing is always a challenge with production of a new product.
However, we are working with trusted suppliers and we have padded our timeline to make sure we can hit the time frames we have laid out.

We have already produced several prototypes with our manufacturer and believe we can start full production very soon after the campaign. However, feedback from the campaign could result in slight design modifications of which we will keep you informed.

We will have our QA team in place to check every shipment that will go out to make sure all backers receive the product without any defaults.

Delivering the orders around the world can be a challenge but we will use trusted logistic and delivery partners to ensure all our backers receive their order in good condition and on time.
