ORIGAMEI - The Foldable Dress for the Minimal Traveler

$146,903

THE FOLDABLE DRESS FOR THE MINIMAL TRAVELER.

After three years of product research and countless hours of work, we at Origamei have created the perfect ensemble of compact dresses for the minimal traveler: The Origamei Dress Collection

The Origamei dresses offer us women everything we want in a dress, with the versatility to carry it anywhere, anytime. It fits comfortably in the glove compartment of your car, hangs perfectly on the strap of your beach bag, tucks nicely inside your backpack, or even stows away discreetly in the side of your purse, Origamei gives women the option of carrying a beautiful dress without the hassle and worry of excessive clutter or overpacking for a business trip or a fun getaway. 

Origamei's patented fold technique makes packing lightcompact, and efficient. With it's wrinkle-resistant and breathable fabric, deep hand pockets, discreet keyring, and minimal style, it's no wonder women who have worn our dress absolutely love it. 

Three Styles for anything life throws at you. Origamei Foldwear is all you need if you're an On The Go (OTG) woman.

Be free, do what you love.

FAQS 

1. How much does each Origamei weigh?

Approximately 12~15oz, depending on style and size.

2. What is the material composition of the dress? Can it be machine washed and dried?

88% polyester and 12% Spandex - Allowing each Origamei to be wrinkle resistant, 4-way stretchable, breathable, and lightweight. Each dress is also true to size and pre-shrunk! We've tested it with over 100 washes and dries.

3. What is the material composition of the key-ring? Can it be machine washed and dried?

The zinc alloy key-ring (carabiner) is spring-loaded, durable, and rust-proof allowing you ease of mind when washing and drying. We've tested it with over 100 washes and dries.

4. Can an Origamei be hemmed in length?

Since the foldable pocket feature is stitched at the lower bottom of the dress, the Origamei KIKU (Tent dress) and MOMO (T-shirt dress) cannot be hemmed. Although, with the inner lining nature of the YURI (Layered dress), it can be hemmed at the waistline where the lining and the original fabric meets.

5. Can the YURI (layered dress) be used for nursing (surprisingly common question)?

Unfortunately, the YURI dress was not designed with a nursing feature included. Although, we’re sure it could be self-modified into the lining fabric for those we would like a fun side project!

6. What is your return and exchange policy?

In the Kickstarter community, the items that you receive after making a pledge are referred to as “rewards” because they are not purchases in the sense of a shop/store. They are considered “gifts” that are sent to our supporters as a token of appreciation for their support of our business. At the moment, there is currently no returns or exchanges.

7. Color and Sizing?

Keep in mind that the colors on these dresses reflect different lighting and may vary slightly from actual representation of color. As for sizing, since we are currently in product development stage, the sizing on size chart may change slightly once development is complete.

8. What about international shipping and tariffs?

Backers from non-US countries may be required to pay additional import fees and other taxes on goods. Please double check with your country's policy for more details on this matter. We do intend on writing them as "gifts" as a thank you for your support - as each country treats "gifts" differently.

                                                                 
  

Risks and challenges

For the past three years, Founder Angela Wang has sourced, manufactured, and sold the first Origamei Classics. Since the first launch of the Origamei Classics, our team has worked hard and diligently to hone in on design, production and logistics. We've partnered with one of the leading manufacturers for athletic wear to make sure their fabric and stitching is up to par with quality and durability. Since these are prototypes, the final production items may differ slightly from what is shown. If we are met with certain road bumps along the way, we promise to communicate with full transparency to you.
