The Filthy Weather (Rain) skirt.

YOU are about to be involved in our NEW collection of RAIN SKIRTS!

Filthy Weather designs needed to become affordable. 

We have the patterns and the materials and makers lined up.  We have distributors and retailers very interested in our work.  We have money for manufacturing.... but not quite enough and we are WAY TOO CREATIVE to ask a bank! 

Our aim is to produce affordable, waterproof, practical, no sweat skirts that simply wrap over what ever you are wearing, look great and fit into your handbag.

A brief history of Filthy Weather:

  • We have been working on our easy to wear designs since 2011

  • Filthy Weather launched in Oct 2015; high end, hard working, extra layer skirts to keep your clothes clean and dry and you warm.

  • Christmas 2017  Finally we found affordable fabric that excited us!  100% waterproof, polyester backed with polyurethane.   A fabric that draped yet would hold its shape. It feels nice, looks good, is strong and can be folded down into a compact handy size. AND is machine washable!

  • Winter 2018 the perfect time for really testing the new 'Dark Label' skirts.
  • Hi-Visabilty Orange is uber practical. 
  • The camouflage is V. cool.
  • Silver is just plain stylish, glamourous & fun!!!
Camouflage. But also silver or hi vis orange, with extra colours in rewards camouflage, silver or hi vis orange, with extra colours in 'REWARDS'.

Our brand new  'Dark Label' collection needs you... and a little of your money!

Things you want to know:

Waist sizes:

  • Filthy Weather cover 22” - 44” waists over 5 pattern sizes. 
  • Each skirt has easy adjustment, allowing 3 inches flexibility, incase you want to tuck in extra layers.
  • Filthy Weather can be taken off in moments. Without removing footwear!

Skirt lengths:

  • The skirts are 30” long.  Your jacket or sweater should sit over the skirt and the skirt should reach over your boots, channelling raindrops away from your legs.

Your feedback  would be treated as valuable market research for product development. We have met more than 1,000 people to talk to, but Kickstarter has the potential to hear from many more.

Filthy Weather is an obvious solution to rainy days.  It has taken us a while to make them this affordable, but we are delighted with the results!

We trust you will want to be part of our project and to be proud of your investment in our work.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Risks and challenges

Fear, nerves and uncertainty make us cautious. Belief, support and potential spur us on. People's requests for a more affordable Filthy Weather skirt has us take a leap of trust.
We have all the raw materials in stock, we have the branding, legal stuff attended too, we know of and we have online platforms and retailers ready to take the work. Much of the financial outlay has been attended to. We have lots of ideas for follow on products and brand development....
Marketing and awareness will always be a problem, knowing this we know what we have to work at.
We feel there is a gap in outdoor clothing and we are just the creative sorts to fill it.

PS, prior to our Euraka/mass production moment, we had initiated the Ketchup & Mustard project, under Make100. A high end skirt (gold label).... it would be a thing of great beauty and a delight to wear..... but 2018 is a year for our Dark Label and for any outdoor sorts to have easy to wear, no sweat protection.
