WELSH MTN CO., A LEATHER STRARTUP REACHES CROWDFUNDING GOAL IN 5 HOURS

The crowdfunding campaign went live on September 1, 2017.

Welsh Mtn Co., a Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based startup company that works to create handcrafted leather products built to last a lifetime, launched their Kickstarter campaign last Friday.

 

During the initial hours of the campaign, the startup was able to raise all of the funds for its initial $10,000 goal. This funding was due in large part to the company’s community and following on Instagram and other social media networks.

Welsh Mtn Co focused on its main products for the launch, with the Rolltop Backpack coming in as the top seller. The Super Early Bird deals on the backpack, Signature Tote, Camera Strap & Pipe Roll have all been sold out.

Over the weekend the funds continued to come in, with the current total over $16,000 in funds raised to date. Much of this was due to a series of influencers on Instagram promoting the products.

The startup focuses on using only American leather, primarily vegetable tanned. Some of this leather is custom tanned for the startup, which will only be sustainable at a larger volume. This leather is used for two of the most popular products, the Welsh Mtn Rolltop and the Signature Tote.

All of the Welsh Mtn Co. timeless leather products come with a lifetime warranty and three lifetimes of experience behind their development.

An Amish family until the most recent generation, the Smucker family was responsible for making the Christmas Bellstraps used by the Budweiser Clydesdales horses.
