Stilnest, a 3D Printing and Curated Web Platform for designer jewelry, secured a seed investment of roughly $ 1 million. Stilnest, which was founded in 2013, offers jewelry designers worldwide market access and regular customers a place for exclusive designer pieces. Among the investors are the investment arm of the Berlin-based IBB and the Klingel Group.
With this investment, Stilnest aims to accelerate its growth and tap into the recent trend of increasing trend cycles in the jewelry market that has transformed the fashion industry. The secured seed financing will also be used to raise brand and product awareness. Along with the financing round came the relocation from Friedrichshafen to Berlin, were the startup is now based since the beginning of 2014.
Stilnest unites personally curated designers with state-of-the-art 3D-printing technique on it´s online platform. Unique one-of-a-kind designs from jewelry pieces are sourced worldwide and automatically distributed to the printing partners and send out from the startups own storage. High storage costs are avoided by a just-in-time production.
Julian Leitloff, Co-Founder of Stilnest, stated in regards to the new funding: „We are happy to receive so much trust and will use the push to establish Stilnest as an address for curated jewelry united with 3D printing technology.“
