Why Buy From Kini Bands?
Kini Bands is owned and managed entirely by myself, an entrepreneur living in San Diego. I funded the start of the business with a part time job, and have made this my full time line of work since 2016.
The Kini Bands team is still very small, and hard working in getting the brand name out into the world. Meet our team:
Maria, Product Development
Maria's work with Kini Bands and KINSMAN allows her to stay home and take care of her mother with Alzheimer's. She is considered our "secret weapon" when it comes to developing new products.
She holds the keys to the kingdom as our admin manager, assisting in Kini Bands customer research and acquisition. She goes to school full time, and has brought on her own team of friends to help out.
A wonderful friend and mother of two, who handles all of our fabric cutting, and dabbles in sales and some of our admin projects.
Nearly all of our materials are sourced locally, including many of our charms, which are are cast nearby by a family-run business. For one of our components which is from overseas, they are shipped in by boat instead of airfreighted, which is the slowest yet most eco-friendly method.
Investing in Kini Bands means choosing hair ties that will last, as opposed to ones that will eventually get thrown out due to breaking or stretching out. Lastly, we do in fact use just about every inch of material when we make Kini Bands, saving all of the scraps for an up-cycle project that we will be starting soon.
We can quite literally say that Kini Bands are the best hair ties in existence. Because of their silicone elastic, they're durable, and won't stretch out. Furthermore, the machine stitching under each charm will prevent from from breaking.
