The World's Slickest Kit... From Scraps

NZ$ 28,794

338

Hi folks, thanks again for all the support in helping us smash our funding goal out of the park!  ✊

If you missed out on supporting our Kickstarter, you can always join the Offcut family and support our global war on waste at www.offcut.co.

There, you'll be able to find the world's most sustainable hats, made from scraps. You'll also find our great leather products made from the furniture industry's offcuts. 

We release all our products in monthly drops, so head on over to www.offcut.co to sign up to our members list and we'll drop you a line next time we're live. You can also follow the journey by following and liking us on Facebook and Instagram... links below.

Much love, 

Adrien and Dan at Offcut HQ.

Risks and challenges

We've been in the cap-making business for three years, so we know what we're doing. Having said that, there are always risks and unforeseen hurdles involved with manufacturing, especially when starting production with new suppliers.

We've been working very closely with our partner factory in Vietnam... Adrien's even been living in Vietnam for the last few months to ensure everything runs smoothly. All is totally set to go and we're really confident with our supplier's ability to deliver the hats with fantastic quality and speed.

Because we're using offcuts of fabrics and leather to make our products, sometimes the colors and designs of the product you receive will vary a little bit from the photos. This is what makes Offcut products unique! Embrace it.

🎅🎅🎅

We're working really hard to a Christmas deadline for all hats and luggage tags. We want them all there with you, or whoever you gift them to, in time for the big day. We're confident we can hit this deadline by sending out all orders in the first week of December, but the main risk here is with international freight in December: as you can imagine, it's totally overloaded. So, there's a very real risk that some orders don't make it until January 2019. Unfortunately, once your order leaves Offcut HQ, it's out of our hands but we are very confident that by sending everything in the first week of December SHOULD ensure your order gets to your house before Big Nick does but we don't guarantee it!

NOTE: The recently-added Celebration Cap is likely to be delivered early next year.

🎅🎅🎅

TAXES: It is your responsibility to pay any relevant import tax or duties imposed by your country's customs when our products arrive in your country. Please make sure you're aware what taxes apply for your country when you back our project.

SIZING: We've designed our hats to be one size fits all and we find they fit about 90% of heads. If you're unsure, put a piece of string around your head (just above your ears and around your forehead) and measure it. Our hats fit a head circumference of 55-61cm (roughly 21.7 - 24.0 inches).

RETURNS: International shipping is super expensive and so we don't honor returns if you've changed your mind. Please read all product descriptions carefully and you'll be stoked with your purchase!
