About

THE IDEA

The idea for 'Pussycat Pants' was conceived in summer 2014, when we  came across a great image  - a selfie of a cool (as in hot) looking gal wearing......pussycat pants. 'Gotta get me some of THEM', we said.

They're not a new idea - we'd seen similar stuff before, but it was mostly no longer available: and what there was, was of questionable quality. The image that had caught our interest turned out to have been photoshopped, so no cigar there either....Solution? We decided to produce them ourselves and set up a brand producing cat-related apparel that combines sass with quality.

PANTIES IN ACTION!
PANTIES IN ACTION!

One of the big problems turns out to be finding a panty that looks sexy as hell, but still feels comfortable (can you look sexy when you're uncomfortable? No, us neither....).So, with our dedicated love for lingerie, we conceived the idea of a range of panties incorporating the best of both worlds - comfort and va-va-voom.

ABOUT THE MINKANAK | PUSSYCAT PANTIES

MINKANAK Pussycat Pants is a collection of comfortable but sassy, lingerie made from a Poly/Spandex mix, laser-cut so as to eliminate those pesky Visible Panty Lines. 

We achieved the level of quality we wanted by working with a specialist manufacturer - a factory team that makes panties, and nothing but, to the highest of standards. They supply a number of global megabrands....and US! 

Working with them, we've employed a highly technical 'cut' using laser technology, resulting in the perfect seamless panty - a low-rise 'boy-shorts' style that will flatter most body-types.  As you'd expect in an item of this quality, the crotch lining is made of 100% cotton for maximum breathability, protection and comfort.The seamless structure and sharp images mean that these panties are invisible under clothing - but make a BIG statement when you want them to be seen. 

The image is rendered not in a nasty, tacky plastic overlay - as with some competitors - it's a high-quality, long lasting print which will survive plenty of washes and wears, provided you follow the simple care instructions.

WHERE ARE WE AT NOW?

From the moment we saw the inspirational images, we were consumed with this idea: so we hopped on a 'plane to Hong Kong, to meet with prospective manufacturing partners and fulfillment centres. We have found that using partners in Asia enables us to deliver the highest quality for reasonable prices. It also means that we can quote our customers a single price, the world over, for the item plus shipping - there's no complicated calculation of postage costs based on where you live. It is free! 

Where are we at now? The great news is, we've finalized our designs, agreed terms with our manufacturers and received samples that are MORE than satisfactory.

If the project gets the backing it needs, the items will be produced and shipped in April 2015 or sooner. And, if we reach our funding goal of £50,000, we'll incorporate additional designs and products to the range - broadening the brand's appeal still further.

Don't worry; this is sort of, maybe suitable for work.

ABOUT US

The team has years of experience in dealing with manufacturers and suppliers, and good experience in identifying sure-sellers. We also have project and financial planning expertise, to help identify any pitfalls.  But to date, we've always focused on distributing other peoples' designs. This is our first foray into making our own designs, and we hope you're as excited as we are.

Pussycat Panties are the perfect gift for your loved one, someone whose attention you'd like to grab, or indeed yourself....memorable, fun and really, really useful!

Risks and challenges

As we've already designed and made the prototype collection, we have a pretty decent idea on the manufacturing times needed, and are very confident that we'll have your panties ready and sent by the end of April or sooner. In saying this, of course there might be some unforeseen event that slows down the process, but rest assured we'll work hard and quickly to sort anything, and let all of our wonderful backers know what is happening along the way!
