I’ve gotten a pretty positive response to posting things like craft fest roundups and Etsy treasuries. I wanted to start finding even more ways to support crafters, and I think I’ve I found a great way to do it. When I was checking out craft booths at Pitchfork Festival last weekend, I met the nice people at CityFabric, and they inspired me to start a series of posts abut interesting Kickstarter projects worth supporting. VisitÂ kickstarter.comÂ to learn more about the site. There’s even a convenient link at the top explaining what they are all about!
CityFabric is based in Raleigh, NC and makes t-shirts featuringÂ figure-ground mapsÂ of their city.Â They’re currently running a Kickstarter to raise funds to develop a new line of products called Wear You Live. This new line of designs will feature more cities and on more than just t-shirts. According to their video, they believe that if people wear their city, they will have more conversations about their cities, resulting in the desire to get involved. What a cool idea!
Their Kickstarter campaign runs through August 31, and they’ve already got about $3500 of their $13,000 goal. The thing with Kickstarter, though, is that if they don’t meet their goal, they don’t get any of the pledged funds. So get pledging! Maybe if this project makes it, they’ll be able to expand their line to include more cities.
