The Jean Hanger: The new way to care for your jeans

CA$ 114,499

Save time. Save space. Save energy.

Save your jeans!

The Problem:

Jeans have been around for over 100 years and yet there is no good way to hang or dry them. Yes, isn't that crazy? Folding your jeans causes wrinkles and creases. Drying your jeans in a clothes dryer not only shrinks your jeans but damages the denim over time. Using drying racks to dry your jeans is way too time consuming. Standard clip pant hangers take too much time to use, don't work properly, break easily and they can damage your jeans.

The Solution:

A jean hanger that delicately holds your jeans, is easy to use, never creates wrinkles or creases and also helps dry your jeans; all at the same time.

As a designer I have spent my life creating functional apparel and products. When I started working for a jean maker I realized that standard pant hangers were not functional. I also wanted to save energy, and not shrink or damage my jeans by putting them in a clothes dryer. So I decided to design a solution that would be simple, long lasting and effective.

2) No more creases or wrinkles from folding.

3) Fits on all jeans or pants with standard belt loops

4) Easy solution for drying jeans

5) No moving parts

6) Lasts a lifetime

Yes, a quality product that will last a lifetime.

The Jean Hanger is a one solid piece of beech wood with no moving parts. Therefore it will not be prone to breaking like other pant hangers. The hanger is .5 inches wide so it is very sturdy. As well, the hook is is screwed into the wood so that it is secure. If the hook ever breaks, which is highly unlikely, it can be easily replaced (by me) without having to throw away the essential wood component.

Sizing:

The jean hanger fits a 22 inch waist to a 44 inch waist jean or pant.

The Jean Hanger(19 inches) is barely wider than a regular top hanger(18 inches) so it fits easily in any closet. Fits any waist size.

The Old Way:

The Prototyping Process:

The jean hanger prototypes were built over the course of a year at the Makerlab in Vancouver, BC. Pictures of the process are featured below:

Final thoughts: 

With your support this will be the first of many smart designs to come. Our goal, like the jean hanger, will be to create functionally better products for everyday use, energy savings and convenience. Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Steven Sal Debus

Risks and challenges

As an experienced entrepreneur and designer I have been creating and manufacturing apparel for over 20 years. I have spent my life working with factories, sourcing raw materials, sampling products and bringing finished goods to market. I have spent the last year designing and building the prototype design so that I would understand all of the elements of the design and manufacturing process. Even a product like the jean hanger that seems so simple to make can offer unique challenges for manufacturing. The first hanger makers I approached were incapable of making the hanger because it was a solid piece of wood. They wanted to assemble it in 2 pieces so that it more closely aligned with their standard manufacturing process. Unfortunately that would have weakened the integrity of the design over the long term so I declined. Eventually I found a factory with a 25 year history in making high quality hangers. Although they have to retool to do production they are ready to go and believe in this project. Beyond the design, having a manufacturer with a good history and a high level of trust is the key to delivering great products.
