It was May of 2017 when my fiance and I had fully packed our bags for a 3 week Euro trip.  I always love traveling with a hat for those days were either sunscreen isn't enough or I don't have time to wash my hair (of which there would be plenty of those days on this trip).  That said, I never know what to do with it when I'm not wearing it and I've always struggled to find ways to safely pack it.

Just before leaving for the airport, I saw a binder clip on my work bench and thought clipping the hat to my book bag could work. So I grabbed it and off we went.  Through every airport of that trip (I believe there were 6) I was stopped by people who saw my bag/hat contraption going through the security scanner, telling me how good of an idea it was.  That encouragement sent me straight to the drawing board to design a clip for this exact purpose and ensuring no imprint. The Kemi Clip was born!  A travel hat companion for any hat and any bag!

With an idea like this, something so simple but useful, bringing it to market effectively is crucial.  My plan is to create a short film advertisement that demonstrates how the Kemi Clip works and how it can be a daily utility for a variety of people in a variety of ways.  A video clip is an effective way to send product ideas like mine to big retailers.

With your support, we can get the Kemi Clip off the ground. Any bit helps to make this idea happen!

Risks and challenges

It's scary to do a project like this as there's always the possibility of failure. Not only that but on Kickstarter everyone can actually see that a project has failed and not reached its goal. The fear of failing is a horrible reason not to try though because otherwise, how would most of the greats have accomplished what they've done? I'm not afraid of failure and I'm not afraid to try. I truly believe that is the secret to life and I truly believe in this product.
