After Day 1 and a story about the inspiration of MEI LI ..
Hi Kickstarter Community.
Very awesome day #1 here at the MEI LI Kickstarter Campaign. We are at 19% of reaching our funding goals and we hope to continue our success.
Let me take a moment here on why we are doing this Kickstarter campaign, so you the Kickstarter community can understand more about us.
We know that Kickstarter is a great platform to solve problems with new products. Olivia, Akiko, and I all know that often fashion accessories look great but are often hard to use, so great looks comes at a great sacrifice to functionality. At the same time, functional bags tend to look very technical and not at all fashionable.
When MEI LI was conceived, we often asked our friends and family if there were any great bags that people loved the way they look and how they fit into their lives. We just got a lot of feedback that while many bags were great, brands out there never really addressed some of the pet peeves that people had with these products.
We asked for some pain points and we got a lot of feedback. Tipped and spilled water bottles, never able to find keys, hard to transfer items from the small bag to the large bag, a full-size wallet cannot never fit into a crossbody, my iPhone 7 or 8 Plus doesn't fit in the small bag, or too many pockets that don't store anything.
We looked at each one of these pain points and at least tried over very best to improve the user experience around these pain points. Did we come up with a perfect solution? Absolutely not. There are so many use cases to make the perfect bag for everyone. However, what we did try to do is improve each of these pain points for most of the people out there, so hopefully, we can improve the bag experience for the many people out there that will make it easier to go about your day to day life.
That's why we really stress our story about fashion meeting function. Akiko and Olivia really own the fashion story and I have all the concerns that everything just fits and works as a good user experience overall.
This is how we plan to provide fashion and function for you today and in the future. We collaborate, try to understand the pain points, and really try to improve the experience while delivering a product you will be proud to carry around. We design to your wants and needs at a fair price to you.
I hope to continue these updates, so you can get a better idea of who we are and what MEI LI is all about. Thanks for reading and I hope you continue to support us.
