Ikslor, a Jackson startup specializing in cuddly duds for tots, will begin a Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday to fund the introduction of a new line of base layers.
Iksplor is looking to raise $20,000, said Kailey Gieck, who founded the business with her sister, Karissa Akin.
The new merino wool shirts and bottoms come in sizes zero to 6P and "six really fun, bright colors," Gieck said. They'll be ready for delivery in January.
Iksplor products are made in Minnesota. So far the company has introduced neck warmers, hats and blankets.
Offering base layers "is where we've been aiming to get to this whole time," Gieck said.
Iksplor turned to Kickstarter because Gieck and Akin have heard from Give'r and other local businesses that the crowdfunding platform is a great way to get a turn in the spotlight.
"We're just trying to get the word out, especially in our community," Gieck said.
