KBM Byakugou

The Group Buy page is now live!

More
This set is inspired by the hanging wisteria flowers in Byakugo-ji. Byakugo-ji is a famous temple in Tamba City, Japan. It is known for its wisteria viewing every year from the beginning to the middle of May. The set draws heavily upon the nice and classic purple colors in the wisteria while the novelties draw upon historical and cultural significances of the wisteria in Japan.





Manufacturing Update
We've made the decision to switch our manufacturer to KeyBee Manufacturing (KBM). Unfortunately the lead times for ePBT were far too long to our liking and we didn't want to leave this set in IC for a year before everybody can get their sets (a lot can change in a year!). KBM Love detective has their color matched samples ready for viewing if you head over to their IC. Check out KBM's Instagram as well!

Order of the Clicks (OOTC) was founded in 2021. Based in Singapore, they pride themselves in their rigorous exploration on how people interface with their keyboards, and thereby their computers; a device we have today grown so accustomed to.

Focusing primarily on the sense of touch, OOTC plays with the tactile experience one gets through typing, coming up with what they call the TileCaps.

The Vulpes OOTC collaboration therefore is an exploration and abstraction of the textures of wisteria foliage, embodying its ephemerality, frailty and lightness of material.

Some kitting feedback:
* nix the R4 1u |\ key in base
* I would go ahead and add the accent 1u, 1.25u, 2x 3u, 6u bars to spacebars. it's not a whole lot to add and will not affect price by much.
* your lock key in 40s should be 1.75u, not 1.5u
* since mod colored 3u's are not available anywhere else, I would add 2x 3u to 40s.

Hey there~ While ePBT Byakugou does share similarities to GMK Frost Witch, namely the purple, I believe that there are significant color and theme differences that makes our set unique

I love the colors!

I'm not a huge fan of sublegends and prefer icon mods as I like the clean look.
Therefore, thank you so much for the alt icon mod + latin alphas kit option! <3

Can't wait to get my hands on this set!
