Our Hybrid Clothing Kickstarter Project is Live!


 

After weeks of hard work, we’ve finally launched our Kickstarter project! We’re so excited to finally get our ideas out there and start sharing our views on eco-friendly fashion. Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website providing millions of users to support independent businesses and project creators as they try to achieve their dream. Bumbling Panda is one of these businesses!

For years, we’ve been wanting to launch an exclusive line made with hybrid clothing, but lack of funds has prevented us from being able to achieve this. We searched for funding resources but couldn’t decide on which one was right for us. That was when we came across Kickstarter and fell in love with its focus on community and collaboration. Because at its core, Bumbling Panda depends much of its success on the readers, video-watchers, subscribers, and DIY-ers who have watched our tutorials throughout the years and inspired us to continue creating hybrid clothing. Kickstarter was perfect for our hybrid clothing project because not only do we want to provide eco-friendly products and reduce the world’s population, we also want to spread awareness of how much pollution is caused by discarded clothing. Finally, we want to show the world that they can be fashionable while also dressing responsibly!

So if you have a chance, it would be really great if you could check out our Bumbling Panda Kickstarter page here. We would really appreciate it if you could pledge. Every little bit counts! We’ve been working hard on the prizes and gifts that will be available for our supporters. Donating isn’t the only way that you can help us. If you’re short on funds or just want to lend us an extra hand, link or share the Kickstarter page on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. and we’ll add you to our contributors’ list as well!

We’re so excited as we embark on this new phase of our journey and so glad that we’re able to share it with all of you. Thanks for the support! Keep checking back with us for updates on our fundraising and other DIY projects.

Bumbling Panda T-Shirt Designs

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG! Our t-shirt designs are done and almost ready to be sent off into the t-shirt world! I’m so excited about these and couldn’t wait to share them! (All props go to my husband, Alex, of course, he came up with the concept for all these amazing t-shirts.)

Our first design features the Bumbling Panda logo. I really love these, but I’m biased here since it has our cute little bumbling panda himself being all awkward and stuff. I remember the day I first drafted up that little guy. Had no idea he would stumble so far, but here we are! So exciting. 🙂

Bumbling Panda Logo T-shirt

These Panda Eyes t-shirts are so simple and so adorable! I love the minimalist design. We’ll have these t-shirts printed on white and black at first and maybe move onto more colors in the future.

Panda Eyes T-Shirt

This has got to be my favorite of all the new t-shirts. Pandas…ninjas…Panda ninjas who endorse recycling. Come on. What’s not to love? (The back says “Recycle or Die” in Japanese.)

What do you think of these new t-shirt designs? Which one is your favorite? Let me know if you like them and if you have any suggestions or feedback. 🙂

Update on Our Customized Tags

Woohoo! Some great news–our customized tag designs are finito-ed! Here is a sneaky sneak at one:

Customized Tags

We pretty much kept to the original design with a few tweaks here and there, and we’re so excited about the little stories behind each piece of hybrid clothing. If you don’t know what hybrid clothing is, shame on you! Just kidding. Basically, hybrid clothing is Bumbling Panda’s term for designs made with upcycled materials that may be mixed with new materials…thus, the term “hybrid.”

We thought it would be cool to include a customized tag which each of our product to let customers know where the item came from and what it was made of so everyone will know how they’re giving back to the environment. What do you think?

Designing Our Clothing Tags

We’ve been busy bees! After a long week of sewing and stitching, I finally sat down to pull some colors and text together. Here’s a sneaky sneak of the clothing tag draft just for our blog followers! 🙂

I’ve always liked the idea that there is a story behind each piece of clothing so I thought I would let our customers know what and where their clothes have been. Once our designs hit the store, each piece of clothing will have a unique label that indicates the content of the fabric as well as what the clothing was made from, whether that’s a thrifted item, recycled material or new fabric purchased from a store (or all of the above).

I’m not sure yet if this will be the final design for the tags, but what do you think? Check out the draft below and let us know in the comments. Don’t forget to like our Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Pinterest too!
