LA FASHION WEEK'S web designer, Kevin Lee-- has announced the launch of his newest project, ‘The Sipper.” The Sipper is a handsome leather drink accessory for coffee and tea cups, designed and manufactured in the USA. A handsome saddle for hot beverages, The Sipper keeps your drink warm, looks elegant, and encourages the slow art of sipping, for maximum enjoyment, relaxation and conversation. In order to fund first production of The Sipper, Kevin has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, which already has 44 backers. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1480354083/leather-sipper-coffee-cup-sleeve
Kevin has partnered with a reputable leather factory to ensure timely production, and too keep quality consistent. The leather used is 100% natural veg tanned leather. Not dyed or oiled, the leather will age will age to a rich color over time, and coffee and tea stains will only add to the patina luster. It fits almost all To-Go cups available in cafes everywhere, and the inside circumference at the top measures 9”. The edges are hand painted a dark brown to seal the edge and provide contrast. The Sipper ships in a simple muslin tool pouch, and Kevin is very proud that all manufacturing is done in the USA.
Kevin Lee commenting on The Sipper said: “The Sipper will appeal to a broad range of discriminating consumers of coffee at tea. I am extremely excited to make this idea a reality and to start shipping! Your support of my Kickstarter campaign will make this all possible. Thank you for supporting me and American entrepreneurship!”
