First Edition In Three Quotes

Crowdfunding's simple: join the crowd, pre-order a product and if the project hits its goal in the allotted time, it gets made (usually with a special deal to thank you for your early support).

But just past the surface, First Edition is radically different.

We use a sage, a wit and a warthog to explain how...

The Thomas Clipper crowd has funded all of our products

1) Confucius

 
The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
 

First Edition is different because at the end of the project if you don’t think what you’ve crowdfunded is up to scratch you can get a refund.

That incentivises honesty and quality: less over-promising and more over-delivering. Simple.

 

2) Oscar Wilde

 
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
 

First Edition projects aren’t full of bells and whistles. They’re for artisans and boutique businesses who realise the value in simplicity.

We hand select every project and are working with only the best to ensure that every First Edition is something we'd be proud to own ourselves (the debut First Edition is no exception).

 

3) Pumba

 
Hakuna matata.
 

It means no worries, and it’s at the heart of the First Edition philosophy.

No worries because you know you’re getting what you ordered, on time, or your money back.

And importantly, no worries because all of the First Edition projects we support are selected to live up to our strict ethical code. That means making better, with responsible sourcing and a benefit to society.
