IFundWomen Crowdfunding Update - Aug 26 - Tentative ETA set!

Progress is happening!   After wondering if the Truli Wetsuits inventory that you contributed to through crowdfunding would be ready on schedule, when they would get on a container ship, and then with a looming Canadian Border Services Agency strike (settling quickly early August), my broker finally messaged a tentative travelling schedule for these wetsuit beauties! Your Truli Wetsuits are currently underway and transiting to the Truli HQ in Ontario, Canada.  As you can see from the last update on July 13, the schedule will most likely change, but it at least gives us a good idea.  I am VERY happy to see this progress!...

IFundWomen Crowdfunding Update - Jun 21 - Truli Production Schedule Update

Hello Truli Awesome Wetsuit Community! This update is to fill you in on the current production situation of your pre-order (or keep you in the loop if you were a contributor!).  We are still on schedule for production completion within a few days of the original finish date of July 7th; however, the transit schedule for the inventory to depart the production facility in Cambodia and travel to Ontario, Canada remains unpredictable.  Some have said it could take months...

IFundWomen Crowdfunding Update - May 7 - Truli Production Schedule Update

Spring has arrived!  Up here in Canada, daffodils are blooming, green buds on trees are emerging, and birds are chitter-chattering excitedly.  I’ve dived into the Great Lakes for a couple of frigid dives and my paddle adventures have been without ice and snow - Yay!  Since the last update in early January, I've connected with each of the 97 pre-order customers, collected sizing information, assigned sizes, and arranged to ship out wetsuits from current inventory if it was available.  So far 19 pre-orders from current inventory have been shipped and received (with 16 more to go!).  There are approximately 15 people who have...

PRESS RELEASE:  Truli Wetsuits for women makes hard decisions post-crowdfunding campaign success

Tobermory, Canada - January 11, 2021 Truli Wetsuits today announced the results of the crowdfunding campaign that took place in November 2020.  Contributions for 97 wetsuit pre-orders over 24 days reached the lower target of $20,000; however, the overall goal to purchase new inventory in every size in all 4 designs did not happen. “In the end, I made the hard decision to cut out 2 of the designs for this particular inventory purchase as well as some size groups, like the long torso and standard sizes,” says Mia Toose, Founder and CEO at Truli Wetsuits.  "I made the conscious decision to choose, at...
