Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Luxury

  • Reality:

    Adagio Mills envelopes the definition of creating luxurious items by knitting soft yarns processed from natural fibers from Alpacas raised locally by farmers in Australia. This campaign launches their first attempt at creating limited items of apparel.

  • Claim:

    Timeless

  • Reality:

    Trends rise and fall in fashion. Adagio Mills is tapping into the Australian traditional methods of knitting and making clothing while catering to the desire and need for eco and animal friendly methods. The style and appeal of soft yarn used for clothing extends back hundreds of years while continuing to stay steady and functional through the rising and falling of the aforementioned trends.

Something To Think About

The element of potential limit for a timeless claim is of course the wear and tear on any clothing item that is well worn.

  • Claim:

    Sustainable

  • Reality:

    Nadine and Andrew Hulme founded Adagio Mills with a goal of sustainability in mind. Adagio achieves this through buying local, raising animals, producing materials, and preventing the need for drawn out processes to send products outside of the local area first.

  • Claim:

    Natural

  • Reality:

    There is no question in the natural methods and focus on the natural of Adagio Mills.

Bottom Line

Adagio Mills ventures into creating a first edition limited run of soft and luxurious clothing. Following the success of the previously successful campaign on Kickstarter, Nadine and Andrew have created a solid base of supporters and believers in what they do. A proven record paired with evidence of high quality products, this campaign is with very minimal risks. The things to consider as a backer are the minor risks of delay with ordering, installing, and learning a new machine to create a new product as well as the question of the certain durability of each uniquely made product. In all, Adagio Mills is a solid campaign with a solid product and a great team in charge.
