Jan. 2013: Dana reads an article about the benefits of flat bands and decides to give them a try.
They hurt her hands.
Traditional flat band handles don't cut it.
She randomly tells Megan about her "grip conundrum" at a playdate with their 6 kids under 6.
"What if we change the shape of the handle?" said Megan. Bandleballs™ are born.
March 2013: SandBarre is created as a means to test-market Bandleballs™. Prototypes are handmade in the garage.
June 2016: Meanwhile, SandBarre keeps growing.
A second location, SandBarre Sea Isle City, is introduced for Summer 2017
The feedback received from SandBarre helps to shape Bandleballs™, literally.
Three years, countless hours, and several prototypes later, a handle evolves that is comfortable, sweat-resistant and easy to use.
July 1, 2017: We launch our Kickstarter Campaign to get Bandleballs™ in your hands!
August, 2017: Our Kickstarter Campaign is successfully funded! Bandleballs™ to launch in December.
