Risks and challenges

Successful product development is dependent on many factors. While there are always risks and challenges associated with building any unique and innovative product, we feel confident that our experienced team of designers, engineers and sourcing specialists will be prepared to face the expected but unknown obstacles head on. Our team has helped bring hundreds of products to market for other companies and we understand the complexities of manufacturing. While we often cannot predict all of the challenges we will face with each product, we have the experience to work through those intricacies in order to meet the functional requirements and quality standards of the product we have aspired to obtain.

We do not just create products without putting in the work. Our development process is calculated and detailed. Our team goes through multiple rounds of design, prototyping, testing and sampling to ensure the product meets our (very high) standards before we decide to bring a product to life. Although Dorai Home is still a young brand, our team has the previous experience to take these new products through the finish line on time while maintaining our focus on high quality and eco-chic design.

Many challenges that arise are issues we can take control of, but some we cannot. For example, a factory that we are working with could burn down or a boat with our container could get lost at sea. That would be out of our control and could push timelines back. We will always be honest with you about the challenges we are facing - and we will definitely let you know if our boat gets lost at sea. Fortunately, this is not our first rodeo and we are both excited and confident about making a superior dish drying product despite the associated risks and challenges.

Long-lasting design

We use only high quality materials and no plastics to create a product that withstands the test of time. Our mat is a combo of aircraft grade aluminum and steel to be durable and long lasting. Our Diomat base is made of organic, sustainable Diatomaceous Earth. Our dish pad is wrapped in high quality silicone so it doesn’t tear or breakdown over time.

Reusability and recyclability

Our Diomat base is made of Diatomaceous Earth, a compound that is 100% compostable and can be re-used in many useful ways. It can be used throughout the house in plants to prevent mold, or outside the home as a natural pesticide. Our product packaging is made of recycled cardboard and we're planning to use the least packing material possible while protecting the products

Sustainable materials

Diatomaceous Earth, or fossilized algae, is an abundant compound that's readily available and has little impact when disposed of, as it’s 100% compostable and good for the environment in its powder form.

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

We are currently vetting packaging die-lines and vendors who can supply us with recycled cardboard packaging that can safely ship the product and eliminate the need for plastic bubble wrap or foam padding. We hope that through innovative packaging engineering we can reduce the amount of material needed and work with materials that have very little impact on the environment.
