New Zealand’s Little Flock of Horrors

New Zealand’s Little Flock of Horrors Children’s Clothing Line on Innovative Kickstarter Funding Website

14 Days Left for Children’s Clothing Line Little Flock of Horrors to meet their goal through funding source Kickstarter.

Auckland, New Zealand –August 6, 2013. New Zealand children’s clothing designer, Little Flock of Horrors (LFOH) is enjoying a great deal of success on Internet funding source, Kickstarter, as they prepare to grow their forward thinking designs made of merino wool at a global tradeshow in the United States.

The company is currently raising funds to develop their product line and create new pieces of their specialized merino wool children’s clothing before the US tradeshow. “Using Kickstarter to help fund our newest product line is a great way to not only raise money, but to increase the awareness of our brand,” said LFOH founder Lucy Wildman. Kickstarter has revolutionized the way that creative projects are funded by allowing everyday people to find a range of projects and products and contribute as little or as much as they would like to help the developers. Those that contribute to LFOH’s newest clothing line will receive a custom-designed piece of clothing made just for Kickstarter backers. Francis Frost, Lucy Wildman’s partner in the founding of LFOH said, “We want everyone who contributes to the growth of our company to receive something that will commemorate their support. Giving each backer a piece of clothing that is made only for this project is a way to offer our thanks and our acknowledgement.”

The Kickstarter process allows LFOH backers to offer their support in any amount, from one dollar up to funding the entire project of $14,000. The funds will be used to expand the line of merino children’s clothing and show it at the largest tradeshow in the United States, formally launching the line into the global market. LFOH’s unique clothing, made from super soft and durable merino wool, offers the latest in design and functionality for today’s busy children and their families. Along with almost countless features and benefits for children, merino wool comes from a completely sustainable source and offers fabric that children love to wear. Combined with Frost and Wildman’s cutting-edge design in funky, fun colors, kids can make a statement with their clothes, while staying warm and comfortable.
