State of affairs

We fought until the end, but unfortunately we did not succeed in finding a solution under the given circumstances. Therefore, we have filed an application for the opening of insolvency proceedings at the Commercial Court of Vienna on June 21st, 2023. The court will decide on the further steps and, if necessary, appoint a liquidator. The liquidator will examine the further steps, but a continuation of the company seems impossible. At the moment we cannot say whether and how much creditors will be compensated. The data of all pre-orders were handed over to the court as part of the list of creditors.

Circumstances & History

At the beginning of 2022, our producer (presumably for profit) produced inferior masks, which was noticed and objected to during a later audit. We then started a recall. New masks were scouted, verified and ordered in September. The producer took our money, but put us off for months and finally cancelled our order unilaterally. Compensation, among other things for the masks we had to dispose of, was not paid. A law firm mediated by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) advised us in this matter. Unfortunately, due to a lack of budget, we are not able to take legal action.

In the course of 2022, we wanted to launch additional products on the market. Initially, a tote bag was planned in a cooperation. However, the cooperation company then found the product "offensive" due to the planned catchphrase "Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet".

An until now unannounced product in the area of safer sex was also planned. A patent application was to be filed for this product. Unfortunately this did not work out. Furthermore, the patent attorney did not pay back the overpaid part of his fee, despite of the communicated credit note. We were in contact with the patent attorney association in this matter, but they declared themselves incompetent.

Our team has been reduced continously and we have tried to save money where we can, but after more than a year without sales, we ran out of steam. Without new products and without production of pre-ordered products we have no future and also no possibility to get capital.

Thanks to all who believed in us!
