Handful To Start Manufacturing in Oregon; Will “pretail” on Crowd Supply in mid-May

(Tigard, OR) May 1, 2013– Handful, Inc., a four-woman bra company based in Tigard, OR, began manufacturing the original flatter, not flatten™ Handful Bra with removable pads six years ago in China. As a loyal fan base has grown, and the desire to innovate new products to satisfy their diverse customer base made up of fitness enthusiasts and breast cancer survivors has increased, the company is now looking to bring its business to the US.
An Oregon manufacturing partner has been secured, but in order to complete the transition and repatriate the production, Handful is partnering with Portland’s recently launched Crowd Supply to use “pretail” sales to finance the move. The campaign is scheduled to launch in mid-May, and while die-hard fans can pre-purchase the Made in the USA bras before they come off the production line, new fans–including men–will be able to support the effort by buying t-shirts that reflect the company culture where a sense of humor is required. The first bras to be made in Oregon will be, appropriately, a Freshly Squeezed Orange and a Get’n Lucky Green. If you aren’t a Beaver or a Duck, Booya Black will be the third color option from the first Oregon production run.
