What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

WHO SAID NIGHTS WERE FOR SLEEP?

Inspired by Amsterdam’s cycling culture and the long winter nights of Northern Europe, Property Of... has developed a unique reflective fabric for the Amsterdam Series, combining safety with style.

COMBINING SAFETY WITH STYLE
The goal is to create reflective bags that look good. This is achieved through a special coating process that allows the fabric to be dyed in different shades, moving away from the conventional silver textiles. The rugged and timeless appeal of Property Of... is retained through the use of our signature leather, brass and waxed canvas details. 

The bags are highly reflective and visible to oncoming traffic. Yet, it appears non-reflective when viewed from other angles. This is due to the retro-reflective technology that uses microprisms to reflect light back to its source with minimum scattering. 

REFLECTIVE, WATERPROOF & LIGHTWEIGHT
They all feature a durable, waterproof and lightweight construction - making them perfect for your daily commute. The Amsterdam Series consists of three different backpacks and are available in Night, Navy, and Army.

We tested the collection in our store to make sure the fabric lives up to our expectations and we are now ready for bulk production. To kick off the bigger bulk production we need 15.000€. Production would start in January and the backpacks would be delivered in March 2017.

Let us introduce you to... Mitch, Archie & Oscar.  

Risks and challenges

PROPERTY OF... is a small but established bags brand from Amsterdam. We operate two stores and our production and distribution line is well developed. The new Amsterdam Series has been tested for any production and user issues. The collection is ready for bulk production and we only need additional capital to start a bigger bulk production.
