We have designed our new line, we have hand-stitched each unique piece to our liking, and now we are in phase three - promoting promoting promoting. We launched our Kickstarter campaign two days ago and we’ve been overwhelmed with the feedback!
When we thought about starting a small business we thought just that - small. It would be a great way for Chris to put his tedious, repetitive, detail-oriented energy to work while I (Tracy) try to support him on the sidelines. All we wanted was to make products that took on the beautiful qualities leather has to offer. Instead of a wallet wearing out, it would wear in; taking on the characteristic of its wearer, and lasting the way leather products are intended to last - a lifetime.
It’s taken a lot of research and fine-tuning. But most importantly its taken a ton of support from family, friends, and strangers we’ve met along the way (you!). We’re finding more and more that starting Peartree Leather means stretching ourselves in a big way and asking everyone we know to come alongside us.
I think that’s what makes Peartree so special. It was originally created because we loved leather - but we are constantly being reminded that it’s all about what others want to see for Peartree. And so far our products have reflected that - they were each reworked and created because someone came to us with an idea or a need for something functional, beautifully handmade, and long lasting. And now with our Kickstarter launched we rely once again on you!
Thank you for everyone who has supported us thus far! With incredibly thankful hearts we are anticipating reaching our goal of 7,000 in less than 2 weeks.
So please keep sharing! Tell your friends and family, because at the end of the day, you are our backbone. We’re here for you, and we can only continue with your help. You are what keep us going!
