Less than one week to go + stretch goals update

The campaign has been a great success so far. Exceeding many of our expectations. We've passed the 450% of our goal. Next Thursday will be the last day of our campaign.

It's already been a few days since we asked you all for input on potential stretch goals. We've received some great ideas and to quickly sum it up,  these were three main requests: 

1) Add new products
2) Add new colours
3) Don't add anything that could cause a delay

Let's start with our outcome: We will not add any stretch goals.This might be a small disappointment, but let us try to explain.

1) Adding new products - We don't feel comfortable doing this at this phase. We did already start the development of more products, but these are not in a stage yet that we feel that we can launch them. We do like the suggestions and we can promise that most of the desired products are already on our radars. We simply ask you for a little more patience for us to bring the products to a next level.

2) Adding new colours - This is something we really wanted to do. But this would require an, in our eyes, unrealistic stretch goal. All our partners are committed to helping us and we are very lucky that we can already bring four colours at this stage. Due to minimum quantities, this is quite a challenge. Adding a fifth or sixth colour could only be achieved by setting an unrealistic stretch goal amount (> 250'000 CHF).

3) Causing no delays - This is key for us. We want to keep our promises and this request was a clear message for us. Like last year, we want to deliver our items before the winter really starts.

That's it for this update. We can't wait to see where we'll be standing at in one week from now.

Thanks for the amazing support!
