Update: Behind the Scenes
20 days ago – Mon, Apr 19, 2021 at 07:06:55 PM

Happy Friday Ori Fam!!


It's Angela here, and I just wanted to jump in to give everyone a little update on what's happening and a few behind the scenes of the process!

James (Contractor) and Angela (Founder)

Process:

First off, All fabric have been purchased! YESSS


We're currently getting the fabric cut. Which should be done next week. And we're going to get one final sample made out of the fabric cut to make our final sign off. Once that's done, we will move into full production which will take about 3-4 weeks.


While all this is all happening we are are scouting our future partners for warehousing and shipping!

Update on Delivery

We are likely looking at a end of May shipping currently but good news is that we're moving forward! We want to thank everyone's patience on this for being so patient! None of this would have been possible without your help! If you're moving soon, please make sure your address is updated on the Backerkit Survey with your current address for end of May/early June delivery! If you have any questions about shipping and delivery, you may e-mail us at hello@theorimei.com so we can further look into your survey and make changes if needed.


Thanks again!

Angela (Founder of Orimei)

All Surveys Have Been Sent. Must fill out before this weekend!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Mar 27, 2021 at 07:23:18 PM

 Happy Friday! All Surveys have all been sent! 

You should have received your Backerkit survey by now. more that 50% of you have already responded (THANK YOU for being so quick!) In the survey, you will get to choose your choice of color for your coat as well as add any additional add ons such as any additional coats for early bird prices or even our newest matching Rope Belts!?

Yes, you heard that correctly! We have made our Rope Belts available to help ensure closure on the coat as well as cinch the waist for styling! It's going to look so good! Pics to come soon.


Why we chose to go with Backerkit?

1. Simplify! Doing what we're actually good at.

Our friends at Backerkit has a plethora of experience in helping many past creators with making the post Kickstarter process as seamless as possible.


2. Add ons! YES, please.

We had many people ask if they could add coats onto their existing order. Well now you can, with Backerkit. We wanted to make sure everyone who pledged were locked in and able to order more at their discounted cost. Whether you were able to snatch up an Early Bird, or our beloved Kickstarter price (Price doesn't get any better than this!) You will now be able to add on an extra coat, or two, for your mom, sister, best friend, or more for all your adventures! Especially, if you decided last minute that you loved the new added colors: Blush Mauve, Monstera Green, or Shadow Grey! 

Our Coats will now have the optional closure with a matching Rope Belt which you can also add on at checkout via survey! This design was created due to high demand and we have been listening! We always are. Changed may not be made but we sure do keep all suggestions in mind for future designs!


3. Address Changes. Moving? No worries!

On top of all this! With Backerkit, If your address changes from now until estimated delivery time (End of April 2021), you will now be able to log into your Backerkit account to make any changes from now until delivery date!


ONE LAST THING!

Please try to fill these out soon as possible (this weekend 3/28/21 latest). We are dependent on these surveys in order to place the right amount to order with our manufacturer!

Thank You all again,

More updates to come.

THANK YOU + We’re now LIVE on Indiegogo InDemand!
about 2 months ago – Wed, Mar 10, 2021 at 03:38:26 PM

Hi backers,

WE DID IT!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

As inventors, creators, designers and founders at heart, we’re blown away by how many of you have connected with Orimei! It feels so rewarding to have put so much time and effort into the creation process and receive resounding support in return.

SURVEY:

We will be sending out a survey a few days later to collect your information on coat color preference as well as your mailing address to ship to in April 2021!  In the survey, you will also have the option to add a matching colored rope belt to your order for each coat. Yes! You heard that correct! We listened to many of your suggestions on adding a closure to the coat and we have decided to make our belt available as a special thank you for your suggestions and input. We really do listen to every single comment and message and want you to know that we are working day and night to make sure all opinions are taken into account. Photos with the rope belt to come soon!

MOVING ON…
