OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
The Xanadoo Boot Basket came about (like most great ideas) by accident.
On route home from the weekly shop one wet Friday night in January, I had to brake fairly hard to avoid the ever present boy racer, the braking caused the shopping to fall over in the cavernous D3 boot.
Once I got home I had 2 choices, leave the bottom boot up and lean in, leaning against the wet boot with all the traffic grime, salt and rain on it ruining my clothing in the process, or opening the bottom boot fully forcing me to do the ‘Discovery Lunge’ into the back of the boot to retrieve half the shopping!
I did both, moaning and grumbling as I went.
It was mid grumble that the idea of a shelf came about, (you can see my ‘Turner prize winning’ sketch on the FB page), from there I sketched a few more ideas and talked it over with a fabricator.
It was time to move to the next level and turn the idea into something tangeable.
It took about 2 months from paper to prototype.
Top Tip. Measure 101 times, make once! After a few tweaks we got the prototype to fit perfectly, I popped it in the back and headed off with a 15kg load (dry dog food) to Germany for a weekend of off roading, it was perfect, no squeaks or creeks at all, no movement. Perfect!
It took a further 4 months, 1000’s of miles and £££ of Diesel to find the right manufacturing partner, but finally I did…..5 miles from my front door!
Since our first 2 designs hit the market, we have been working hard on new ideas and additional products, so keep watching this space for exciting new products from us.
