Here is the prices for blind rails – it’s quite expensive, but we could make the actual structure of the rail from wood – cheaper and more environmentally friendly!

I thought I would let you know what I had in mind for the website, I won’t be able to do something as shinny as this but you get the idea.
Also attached is the Image I would like to use for the scroller, it’s just a prototype so let me know what you think (it’s in the Media Library)
Potential Markets… 01/03/2009
I’ve been doing some research, and the type of shops that I think would sell our type of products are:
The Conran Shop
House of Fraser
and similar shops that sell to more upmarket customers eg 30+ year old professionals with disposable income.
Also – none of these stores sell any items that resemble our products – niche tastic!
mission statement draft 2 27/02/2009
At Re³, it is our goal to create unique objects of great personal and sentimental value from existing and occasionally obsolete materials and technology.
In doing so, we will be assisting the environment by:
- reducing unnecessary disposal of potentially harmful materials
- countering carbon emission
- increasing the lifetime of materials and products
- re-using existing materials with innovative manufacturing processes to create engaging products
Through this venture we hope to shape current opinions on sustainability, with a view for a better future. We hope to demand more from product design, and play a part in the drive towards customer satisfaction; for the environment, for their home comfort, and for their wallet!
