THE UT.LAB LIGHT WING Trainers: the next step of changing the way footwear is brought to market

Our readers should remember the first crowdfunding campaign by Unbelievable Testing Laboratory officially launched in June 2013 on Kickstarter. THE UT.LAB is a mix of industrial designers, ceramic artists, logistics specialists, and serial entrepreneurs who are keen on science, design and footwear. Today they are changing the way footwear is brought to market, again.

The LIGHT WING shoes were being shipped to 57 countries, touching every continent except Antarctica. You can hardly remember any other successful footwear crowdfunding campaign launch not only on Kickstarter, but on all other crowdfunding platforms.

The next step in the evolution of THE UT.LAB has already begun on Crowdtilt. The initial startup’s goal to change the way footwear is brought to market is remained the same. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on manufacturing shoes ahead of time, and guessing what the market wants, THE UT.LAB wants to let you help them decide what shoes they will be bringing to market in 2014.

Up-Shirt: the tee with the tiny environmental footprint

The Up-Shirt technology allows to mass produce a t-shirt with an 80% smaller environmental footprint.
T-shirts are an iconic, essential piece of clothing but, from crop to shop, they carry a pretty hefty environmental burden.The thing is, factory made t-shirts yield up to 40% wastage. That means 40% of that cotton is grown in vain and huge amounts of water and earth resources are wasted.
It’s taken years of hard work and research but authors of the startup came up with a clever design and production model to mass produce t-shirts using those leftovers. The team offers the up-shirts to sports events, music festivals, NGOs and other organisations who often order thousands, even tens of thousands of t-shirts.
