A lot of new things happening at koostik.com!
As you can see our website has a completely new look, along with a lot of new content. Be sure to check out our story section to read up on how we got our start and where we've been going. Also take a look at our buzz page to see what our customers have been saying about us. From there you can also visit some of the various blogs and websites we've been blessed to be featured on.
Along with the new website, we've launched 3 new products - the Kov, Kov for iPad, and New Koostik for iPad.
The Kov is a new design that departs from the linear looks of our other iPhone accessories. The Kov fills a niche for those looking for the perfect little dock for their iPhone, while still accomplishing some acoustic amplification as well.
The Kov for iPad has been designed to best function with all three versions of iPad now in use since Apple first introduced the product. We have mimicked the design of the Kov for iPhone in this new design, and love the natural flow of the wood surfaces.
The new Koostik for iPad takes our previous design for this piece into a new direction with it’s smooth flowing curved form. It is designed to work with all three generations of iPad. It allows for use in portrait or landscape mode with a 20 degree angle for viewing, as well as low angle use along the back face for typing.
We didn't just stop at new products, we've also added 3 new woods to our lineup - Maple, Makore, and Beetle Kill Pine.
Maple is a very dense American hardwood with uniform light coloration and attractive grain. It's a beautiful wood and finishes to a silky smooth feel.
Makore is the first and only imported “exotic” wood we work with. Makore trees grow in abundance throughout western central Africa and are sustainably harvested. It is a very fine textured relatively dense hardwood that ranges in color from orange-red to red-brown. It is very similar in appearance to the finer mahogany species. It works very well and takes a beautiful finish.
Our “beetle kill pine” is harvested locally from standing dead trees throughout Colorado, where the pine beetle infestation has created thousands of acres of dead trees. These dead trees pose a huge fire danger. By purchasing and using the lumber, we are helping to fund the thinning of these trees from Colorado forests. The pine beetle causes gray-blue streaks in the outer layers of wood. This makes for some quite stunning coloration when contrasting with the warm yellow heartwood of the tree. Currently, we are offering the Original Koostik and the Mini Koo in this wood.
In order to take things to the next level, we have opened up a new shop and have added to our team. We're excited and blessed to be moving forward, creating products out of passion!
