Yeah! It’s done!!!!

Our crowdfunding project has been successfully completed. On Sunday at 8:36 pm the moment had come: We reached our goal of 12,000€. Since the project finished, this amount has even built up to 12,440€.

So the EARTHBAG can soon enter production. The vouchers were sent off to all supporters today. Of course we will update you about the next steps.

We are so incredibly proud and happy that we could count on your support. Without you this would have never been possible. Thank you!

THE EARTHBAG STORY: PART VII

PART VII The final EARTHBAG

The rope preyed on our minds. We worked on different ideas, improvised things, drove through Berlin to buy specialized parts. We even went to a leather shop to look for high strength structural rivets. And oh, right, we also went to a joiner’s workshop to drill huge holes into wooden balls. Unfortunately we had to dispel all these ideas because nothing worked the way we wanted. One day though we had a quick idea – literally. Do you know these quick release buckles? They allow you to rearrange our EARTHBAG easily and in no time.

THE EARTHBAG STORY: PART VI

PART VI The EARTHBAG prototype 2.0, 3.0…..

The basic concept was completed. Now it was time for us to seriously think about how to design the straps and the mechanisms to close and rearrange the bag. We wanted that to be quick and easy. Check it out: It’s going to be veeery creative :) From carabiners and cords to bands and even ropes – we came up with every material. But we haven’t come up with the best solution yet … See for yourselves!

THE EARTHBAG STORY: PART V

PART V: The first EARTHBAG prototype

It would have been too good to be true. But the EARTHBAG didn’t look as cool as in the sketches. So this is why we don’t want to publish a picture of a failed prototype here ;) But we didn’t let this get us down. Got some fresh air and on we went. Voilà! It’s the EARTHBAG 2.0 let’s say. Same functions, improved cut and one special feature: I WANT MY EARTH BACK as a “hidden” message. The idea “EARTHBAG – the bag that makes a statement” was born!
