"Here at Red Frog, we're excited to show you what we've been working on. After lots of patience hard work and improvements we can honestly say hard work pays off. We're very proud of the results and the way we could use recycled material like old tires and automotive leather. Our expectations were definitely exceeded."
- So says the mighty Pamela, she who is the translator of our crew.
In the past month the crew at Red Frog have been working hard on diversifying our line to cover the summer months,experimenting with products that reflect our commitment to finding new and exciting ways to use Caucho Rubber.
The good news is that we have designed and prototyped 9 styles of sandals that will work in any casual environment, on the beach, in the hills, at school or the office, you name it they'll work and they'll work well. (And they're pretty styling, if we do say so.)
We plan to do a Kickstarter campaign beginning May to raise money for manufacturing and materials so that we can take these out into the world. Delivery for backers will be June, Before that they won't be for sale on the site so keep your eyes on the Kickstarter for early delivery.
Lono Rubber (tm) Bags-
The better news is that, after a few hits and misses, we've developed a way to bond finer rubber chips to fabric. With it we can make bags of just about any style that are incredibly durable, waterproof and also pretty styling. We call it Lono Rubber (pat.pend.) and we've already started to make the prototypes for a new line of laptop bags, panniers and satchels in time for the next school season. As well we're experimenting with yoga mats (and how cool is that).
Our plan to do a Kickstarter campaign in June (with delivery for mid-July) means the bags won't be for sale on the site until then, so watch for it.
