ABOUT US :


Knotty, is an upcoming brand from India. We have companies who want us to sell our creativity, trademarked and patented designs to their brand but, we strongly believe that Knotty has a lot of potential growth behind it's innovative idea and craftsmanship to stand alone and make it to it's well deserve shelf life. With your help we would be able to open our first outlet in December 2017.


FUNDS & FUNDING :


A goal is a dream with a deadline. We hope to gain maximum benefits for our first campaign on such a crowd funding platform which is today's easiest and probably the best way to reach the majority of people who support and appreciate New Ideas, Unique Concepts, Designs, Style, Colors, Fashion and Leather.. So, we hope to raise funds from the people around the globe who would like to get a piece of the KNOTTY product by choosing your reward and helping the project move forward making it a SUCCESS.


  • The funds would allow us to firstly, buy the fittings, raw hides then Tan in various colors and finishes offering leather in various finishes and colors.

  • When a product is launched locally or internationally, there is a lot of money that goes into refinement of tooling, injection molds, advertising and infrastructure such as outlet expenses etc. 

  • Our KNOTTY products are extra-ordinary that the world has ever seen, heard or felt. So, this what's makes us special and so our patented products. If you like Innovative Design Concepts then KNOTTY is for you. However, in near future the cost of the products would either be lesser or would be in a position to give discount to our first hand customers. But as of now, this is it!

  • Whilst, we prepare our new outlet space and build it as below structured idea and pay the minimum rent of $10,000 (Rs 6 Lakhs and 50 Thousand) per month for a lock-in period of 12 months at a shopping Mall in one of the metropolitan cities Mumbai, New Delhi or Kolkata. 

  • The funds would allow our designing team to make further molds and samples to always add something new to the Knotty Collection.  


RISKS AND CHALLENGES :


We are confident that our production timeline is achievable with having all the other resources such as the Work Force, Machinery, Infrastructure and required essential tools but to open an outlet it costs a lot of money as a continuous recurring expense. Our buckle designer is from outside India and has a good pay check that we need to pay in-order to get our designs right and through which the world is yet to see but, developing cutting edge buckles isn't easy, and it's also very costly/time intensive.

Since the start of Knotty, we are only working towards the exclusive designs be it belts, bags, apparels etc.  The lead designer and CEO of Knotty! Mr. Saif Taj, has made frequent visits to China in the last 02 years and finally partnered with a Chinese company to get the right resources for Packaging, Apparel line up. He is also in talks with a German company to make exclusive designed buckles for Knotty Bags which the world has ever seen.  

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED :  


A large cash outlay is always required to start production.
Each of our buckle design would cost between $10,000 - $12,000 including the Molds, CAD Designing/Drawings, Patents which need to be paid and purchased upfront.


But of-course, the money has a break up to turn an idea into reality like any other new start-up. The funds will be used wisely to design and make more and more Knotty products range but everything cannot be judged before we finally go into our final round. Our target to reach the goal of $400,000/INR 2,50,00,000 has most of the cost paid to the the Knotty team of Bag & Apparel Designers, German Buckle Designer, German Buckle fitting Company, Photography Models from outside India, Secure Product Patents Worldwide, Rent for 12 months to own an Individual Outlet Space. Some costs have an Initial Investment Cost (IIC) such as Salaries, Raw Material Purchase etc, some against advance payment such as the Outlet Rent, Purchase of CAD Drawings, Molds etc and some have uncertain costs like product photography, advertisement etc.   

Our aim is to first complete the Rewards for the Backers and later, supply to the masses through Retail outlet. Although, we are all set to launch the all new range of Knotty line for 2017 but, we would further like to do the refinement of tooling. Along with the set-up of our first outlet giving it a Leathery feel from furniture to flooring, making the retail outlet atmosphere suitable and parallel to the Knotty environment. 


 Our First Outlet Furniture & Lighting Concept Too has the KNOTTY Side ;-)


SHIPPING, WHEN & HOW :  


Our shipping partner is DHL for Domestic / TNT for International shipments so, it is not a problem for us to deliver in any part of the world.
COLOR CHOICES :


Initially, the Knotty products are available in Black, Brown, Tan, Pink & Blue. We will be adding more color options later in 2018. As of now, all the supporters will be able to choose their color preferences by filling-in the delivery form after the campaign ends.
