Shark Tank Show
So what is three Brother's going to do growing up in the Family Saw Mill Business? Make some really cool wooden sunglasses that really stand out from any other frames on the Market. Taylor, Tanner and Brooks Dame from Eagle, Idaho started the Proof Eyewear business in their garage and have continued to expand this impressive Brand ever since. After two successful Kick Starter campaigns from two unrelated, but still made out of wood, product's, the Dame Brother's are coming to the Shark Tank.
Some of you may already have seen "I want Proof Sunglasses" on yet another Successful Kickstarter Project coming into the Shark Tank.
The Dame Brothers first project was for had a an initial goal of $11,500.00 to expand their line of wooden sunglasses and help with the much needed capital to keep up with manufacturing. Unlike a lot of other projects just starting out, the Dame Brothers already had sales coming in from around the world but the lack of capital was holding them back from expanding their popular Brand. They successfully completed their goal and raised over $15,000.00 when it ended in Aug. 16, 2011.
With one successful campaign under the Dame Brothers belt, they decided to try the Kickstarter route again with another very unique wooden product they designed, the wooden wallet. The wooden wallet is about as little of a wallet that has even been made that use old bicycle tire tubes as the glue that holds it all together. WHAT? That's quite the combination, Hugh? We'll not only does it guarantee to carry everything your other wallet can carry, it is guaranteed never to lose anything you place in it while taking up a fraction of the space. Brooks Dame only needed $2,000 to get this project kick started and by the time it was over He raised over $31,000 from 768 backers on July 18, 2012.

Proof Eye Wear Expanding To The Skateboard Market
Proof Eye Wear is now expanding their line of wooden sunglasses and targeting the very popular and very lucrative skateboard market. The new skateboard sunglasses are made out of 5 ply Canadian Maple skateboard decks to match their unique skateboards. It's not hard to imagine the Proof Eye Wear becoming a status symbol in amongst the Pro Skateboarders, especially if they had their own unique wooden sunglasses Branded just for them.
This clearly is a unique Brand that has a lot of potential but what about production on custom wooden frames? Do they have capacity to handle very large order's making a custom one-of-a-kind wooden products? Or are they geared up to handle the volume of orders that will start pouring in this Friday Night on the Shark Tank. They have already proven themselves in the market and now it's time to see if they can swim with the Sharks and get a deal of a lifetime.
