Beautiful and practical home goods for everyday living

$25,730

232

Hi, we're Anne Marie and Roger Jackson, the co-founders of THROUGH THE SEA, and we need your support.

Two years ago our lives changed forever when we became a foster family. Overnight we gained front row seats to the crisis of foster care in the United States.

Those two years were the toughest of our lives, we loved, and lost kids we dreamt would be part of our family forever. We were naive to the impact that trauma has on kids, naive to the scale of their plight and the lack of resources. We needed more knowledge, support, and resources. 

As designers, we'd spent the last 15 years designing for Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Google, and Starbucks among others, but we'd always dreamed of having our own line of products... but we were missing our "why". 

Today, we have our "why". 

With your backing, we're launching THROUGH THE SEA, a home goods brand that gives back to kids from hard places by bringing greater awareness to the foster care crisis and supporting our non-profit partner National Angels. With you, we'll build a nurturing and purposeful community. 

The funds from our Kickstarter campaign will go to the manufacture of our first line of products, and the setup of our website and online store.

Our Kickstarter Goal ($25,000) is what we need to order our product line minimums.

We have a stretch goal of $40,000 if we hit that, we'll be able to offer you the terrazzo print (peach colorway) in fabric-based products (tablecloth and dishtowel).

After a successful campaign, we'll launch our website store where 10% of our profit will go directly to National Angels, helping more kids get in their Love Box Program.

Our modern and beautiful home goods, allow you to host with confidence. They help you maintain a casually-elegant look every day, by being easy to clean and durable. Our two hero products (Laminated Tablecloth and Placemats) are both wipeable, so there's no need to wash them. 

Its taken over six months of product development, prototyping and testing to get to this point. We love the results, and we know you will too.

 Why can I only pick one reward?

That's the way Kickstarter is set-up, you can only select one reward tier.

What if I want to select multiple reward tiers? Kickstarter is not a store and so is not set-up like one. If you wish to select multiple rewards here's how:

Select one of the tiers and pledge the additional dollars for the other tier(s) you'd like (i.e total $'s for combined rewards). Then leave a note or email us letting us know which rewards you are combining.

for example: 2 x sets of placemats = Pledge of $180 dishtowels + coasters = Pledge $75

Risks and challenges

Although this is our first Kickstarter campaign, our prototyping phase is fully complete. We have already produced all of these products in limited production runs. Our goal ($) amount is indicative of the funds needed to order the minimums of the first line of products.

Our shipping estimate (APRIL 2019) includes the time needed for manufacturing our products from our existing vendors. At the completion of a successfully funded campaign, we will be fully transparent with the manufacturing and shipping process and estimated delivery dates.

As with any manufacturing effort, there are potential risks, the biggest for us would be delays in delivery time for unforeseen circumstances out of our control; like machines breaking, inclement weather, etc.
