We are thrilled to announce that our crowdfunding campaign for sustainable aikidogi has ended successfully! We have collected 128 pre-orders within the last three months. Many aikido fellows gave us such a supportive feedback that we are super motivated to continue with our project. Thank you very much! The present financial situation allows us to carry on with our first production order. This means, the count-down to the delivery of the first sustainable gi has started! 🎉🎉🎉
This campaign would not have been possible without the contribution of many people: 1000 thanks go to all who pre-ordered and supported this campaign! Many thanks to all dojochos and aikido fellows who helped us to spread the message and gave us the opportunity to present our prototypes to their fellows and students. Special thanks to Urs José, Julia, Urs K., Helena and Jan, Martin, Ute and Christoph. Best thanks to the campaign production team David and his team, Jonas, Amber, Rene, Corine, Anton, Björn and Stefan. Our deep gratitude to Maïa Barouh for allowing us to use her beautiful song “soran bushi” for our campaign film. Thank you very much to Bernhard, Noel, Emir, Aida, and the team of slowFASHIONfast for their wonderful support and quality service and for believing in us. The project wouldn’t have been successful so far without the expertise and friendly support of the Berlin fair fashion community including interloom, Anna, Rabea, Marte, Sandra, Sylvie, Upcycling Fashion Store and many more. Last, but not least, I would like to thank my dear family and friends for their great support. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!
By the way, our online shop stays open and we are looking forward to receiving further pre-orders in the coming weeks.
