I couldn't find anyone to make it for me, so I decided to create it myself.

I handled everything from drawing up the blueprints, selecting and purchasing the wood, to hiring a factory and finalizing the production process.

I’am only producing a total of 100 units without any additional production.

This is not a pre-order, just a limited edition sale.

The attached photo shows about 60% completion of the entire process, with all remaining steps being detailing work. So, I'm sharing it publicly.

(Wood & quality)

Palmrest Produced using African Mpingo Only, and wooden case build with korean walnut.

I did not use paints (water-based or oil-based)

This product is 100% made in South Korea through handmade and custom order production.

Through a collaborative project with Korean and international Olympic athletes, overseas designers, and partners with patented techniques, the Kissthebrand products are made in South Korea.

The design showcases the unique black and yellow tones of Mpingo, making it highly valuable as a collectible item.

(Shipping)

To obtain this rare and beautiful product
https://www.paysable.com/en-US
You can either use this service or ask a friend in Korea for help

It is difficult to ship directly from abroad. because ...

[The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has listed dalbergia melanoxylon – commonly known as African blackwood and used in almost all new Highland product – on the CITES Appendix II, and what could be an outright ban of its use without a permit is to go into effect on January 2, 2017. The wood is categorized currently as “near-threatened” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List.
 Therefore, while individual transactions are possible, direct exports by our company are difficult.]

Mpingo Palmrest of like this quality has not yet been manufactured, and I think it will be difficult to produce it in the future.

It will take approximately 3 months for the entire process to be completed.

Out of the 100 units, the first batch of 13 units has completed the work over the past two months, reaching a progress rate of 60%.

The next 86 units have been in progress for the past month, reaching a progress rate of 30%.

Shipments will be processed in the order of deposit receipt.

The first batch of 13 units is scheduled for dispatch in early June.

The subsequent 86 units are scheduled to begin dispatch in early August.

Due to shipping carrier issues, we can only offer domestic shipping within South Korea. For purchases from countries outside South Korea, a forwarding service will be required.

It will be sent with kiss the brand certificate.
