A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Where do we begin
On average, a person like you and me showers 7 times a week. Meaning, daily.
Most of the times when we are ready to shower, our towel isn't.
And that got me thinking… We are few years away from sending humans to Mars, but our everyday essential is still underperforming.
All it has to do is absorb excess water quickly, dry-out between uses, be durable and soft at the same time. Do we expect too much?
I’ve tried a good stockpile of different brands, textures and fabrics on the market, but none of them was right.
Being a perfectionist for life, I went on a mission to create a life-changer - K-25 - best towels ever, either for hair or body.
It works exactly as real waffles. We all know waffles carry more syrup than pancakes, right?
waffle texture = enhanced surface area for maximum absorption
less surface of contact = less damage to hair cuticles and skin cells
less friction = less frizz, rush and skin irritations
innovative airy honeycomb pockets let it dry faster than ever as they allow air to flow through
pockets are prone to getting flat or ropy
Less hair stress, damage, frizz and tangles - your hair is manageable and shiny as never before. All hair types and any hair length.
Wraps around into a turban easily. Stays on place. Ready to style faster. Exceptionally great to tame naturally curly hair.
Less tangles = more reasons for baby smiles :)
We offer you the best size options ever created
BATH SHEET - 40"x 80"
Our towels are so luxuriously soft and nicely textured that we found them surprisingly versatile. Use them every time and anywhere: after bath, shower, spa, pool-side or beach
It was a long creative process with three variables in hand: fabric weight, pattern and weaving technic. After developing many prototype samples we achieved a perfect balance. This will be the last towel you'll ever want to buy. Why compromise if you need just one towel - simply THE BEST!
July - Kickstarter campaign starts
August - Kickstarter campaign successfully ends (we hope and believe!)
Early September - production starts
End of October - quality control
November - final quality control, packing, shipping starts
December - all backers receive their pledges
- Machine wash warm and tumble dry low
- Do not use fabric softeners or bleach
- Do not iron
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Risks and challenges
Our highly professional partners are ready to turn their looms on, dye the best quality yarn, and weave the towels according to our requirements.
We will check quality again and again to ensure all of our backers receive the best towels each time. All videos and photos are of prototypes and small details might be improved in actual production.
As we want to share our project with the whole world, certain destinations might involve customs fees and duties that are backer’s responsibility and might influence delivery time. While we plan to start shipping all rewards at the same time, some of you will receive them faster, while some later depending on your physical address.
As our project involves human factor manufacturing and shipping overseas, force majeure may happen. We will always keep all our backers updated at each stage and if any changes happen.
You will receive one full towel set, including:
1 bath towel + 1 hair towel + 1 hand towel + 1 face towel at an exclusive Kickstarter price
(Retail price $95)
