Hello dear backers,
I would like to take advantage of our monthly updates to share a shift in perspective I have experienced during our journey from prototype to mass-production- A chance to re-think the image of "Made in China."
MAYU Swirl is produced in 3 different factories in very different regions of China, each with its own specialties, traditions, environment, natural resources, and people, creating this product for you.
In this update, we wanted to share a bit of the story behind the production in gratitude and appreciation to these people.
The glass Carafe is made in Shandong in an area dedicated to glass manufacturing, where glass is being turned in any kind of shape imaginable for domestic uses as well as for the biggest global brands.
MAYU Carafe was a challenge to produce, as it has a unique glass hinge mount on the bottom of it.
It is all hand made with great attention to detail.
The MAYU porcelain Base is created by masterful hands working on-site within the Porcelain region of China - Jingdezhen.
The porcelain is collected straight from the surrounding mountains, milled by water and then crafted, by know-how based on over 1,200 years of tradition(!)
Jingdezhen ceramics have been known to be described as: "white as jade, clear as a mirror, thin as paper and a sound like a chime".
Artists from around the world come to study from the local masters here, and the highest quality porcelain products are being exported from here to all over the world. Our major challenge was to incorporate the engine and electronics into the porcelain. Precision was key for the quality we are aiming for, and they definitely succeeded.
Finally, the third factory in Guangdong, a manufacturing hub and one of the biggest export regions in China, producing the electronic, plastic components and where the final assembly of all the pieces come together to one whole swirling product packed and ready to be shipped around the globe.
After traversing this vast country, meeting the faces and hands that carefully create our product, I can fully say I feel proud and confident with the final result, expertise that is backed by years of tradition and a rich heritage meet innovation and a global community of people working together to build a better world.
We are truly living in an exciting era!
We are on schedule with the shipment of the first container and some of you will get your MAYU Stream by the end of November/beginning of December and some by January. Again, we are sorry for the delay.
All we can say is- Thank you!
Our vision stretches far into the future,
but these first steps are made possible only with your support.

We hope you're all doing well.
I'm writing this update on the plane ride home from China, after another visit with our manufacturers:
There is no easy way to put this - Our production has been delayed until the end of October for the first batch, and the end of November for the second batch + 3weeks for freight shipping and another two weeks for customs clearance, warehousing, packing and land transporting…
Some of you will get your MAYU Stream by the end of November/beginning of December and some by January. This means a 6-month delay in our shipping and we are humbly sorry.
This is not something we take easily, and looking back we've made some mistakes on our course, and miscalculated the time it takes for some critical steps. For us, this is the first time going into mass production, an amazing, challenging and sometimes frustrating realm. Although we hired experienced personnel to lead the fulfilment of the product, It has still unfortunately taken double the time.
Now we fully understand why 84% of the most successful Kickstarter projects have delayed delivery. We have since doubled our team, and I am personally dedicated to making sure there won’t be any more delays.
On the bright side - the final product has made a successful leap to mass production - It looks great and works really well.
Please bear with us on this path. As we climb up this major mountain range, we know that we will look to the top and see you all around the world celebrating with a raised glass of MAYU water.
Your support throughout has been amazing and truly the wind beneath our wings.

Happy August wonderful backers!
The full power of summer is here, reminding us that 60% of Israel is a dry, scorching desert, but for us, being near the sea, it's so hot and humid around our studio. This helps us feel that our mission- to provide the best, most thirst-quenching water in the world- is ever more pressing.
We're happy to report we're moving forward- full steam ahead! Working passionately on mass production. Our team just returned from another productive trip to China, meeting with our manufacturers (and with a suitcase of accessories that just came out from the mold, here is the first peek)
Here in Israel, we're all hard at work making sure all backers receive their pledges.
This would be a great opportunity to remind all of the 368 backers that have not filled in their surveys..... now would be a good time to do so. As we're finalizing the shipping lists, we need your address and contact details to make sure you receive your MAYU. We'll keep on sending reminder emails but will be locking down the numbers soon so please fill in your surveys. 🌀💙💧
If you have any questions, you're welcome to forward them to Rachel or one of our other wonderful and caring customer support specialists at email@example.com.
Again, we deeply appreciate your support. We're growing and its thanks to all of you, wonderful backers. Every one of you. We feel you in the thoughtful emails, messages, and comments. We love you!
Till next month
Remember to drink well

Hello to all you incredible backers,
The big question on everyone's mind is: when will the MAYU package be at my doorstep? Swirling in my kitchen? 🌀
We’re happy to let you know we’ve made good progress and we have detailed timetables regarding production.
Though we thoroughly researched and prepared, we are amazed at the length of this process and at the challenges that ensue when you take a hardware prototype and carry it to mass production.
We were on schedule to start producing now (July) but because of a few reliability issues with the Streams, we have to move our deadline to something more realistic.
The first time at anything requires a lot of learning.
Also, we cannot compromise on quality and, as we dive into the smallest of details to ensure we are providing you with the best end-product that we possibly can, we are sometimes faced with challenging decisions.
Thank you for walking this path with us, providing us your trust and patience
We deeply appreciate it. It gives up the power and faith to keep on keepin' on! 🌀💙💧
Here is a glimpse of our latest model hot from the production line - last round of adjustments and we will be producing our very first 6,000 units!
The quality of the porcelain base actually exceeds our expectations.😊
The updated timetables are as follows:
September - First production batch will be ready.
Sending out units to our Backers
By October - Most of you will be drinking Swirling water with the rest receiving your units soon after.
We truly thank you for your patience and apologize for missing summer for all you northern hemisphere backers.
Till next month
Be bold and adventurous,
The Mayu Team 🌀💙💧

Dear Amazing Backers!
Summer is officially here @MAYU Offices! It's hot and humid and we're drinking lots and lots of delicious MAYU Water.
Happy to update that almost everything is churning along, and whatever is not, is getting special attention from our amazing team! We're learning every day how to manifest our thoughts and dreams and turn them into a complex, engineered, mass-produced product, making sure materials are excellent, and robustness is at the very top of our mind.
We're getting ready for another production visit to China and for the first mass-produced MAYU Streams to reach us in July! Exciting times!
We thought this would be a good opportunity to share a small sip of our future vision and road ahead for MAYU.
As you know, we're busy making sure all streams are produced and sent over to all of you but our road is only starting. On our mission to rid the world of plastic bottles and unhealthy and unsavory tap water, we're diving deep into the chemistry and physics of water to re-engineer drinking water as we know it.
Looking to nature, and keeping with the "Water in motion" theme we began with your MAYU Streams, we're now incorporating our two other #waterevolution methodologies: purification and remineralization.
We've been creating beautiful machines that produce, amazing and yummy water incorporating all three steps. Right now the machines are big, formidable beasts, but soon, we'll be shrinking them up and placing them in your kitchens and offices. If you've been following our Facebook or Instagram pages, you've probably caught a glimpse of some of them. Last week, we took part in yet another futurist convention and were asked to present our water. As always, people loved the machines and also the taste of our water which tastes like...well... water. Real Water!
We're in the middle of a fundraising step to allow us to reach these new and ambitious goals. We'll not stop till everyone has access to real, yummy drinking water from tap!
As always, we love you and thank you and looking forward to having a little piece of us swirling with you all very soon.
