After my rather bizarre interactions with the PR firm representing the LOKLiK Crafter product launch, I looked into who actually owns and runs this organization and sister company HTVRONT.
What I learned isn’t necessarily surprising, but was a major factor into my decision to get a refund on my Indiegogo participation. (Yes, you can get a refund!)
I will not be featuring this product on the Sewing Report or allowing company representatives any airtime on this platform.
Plus, I have an update email from “Kimberly”!

Who is behind the LOKLiK Crafter and HTVRONT? On the HTVRONT website, it says the parent company is “Siki Eagle Sarl” based in France, and from what I can tell it owns quite a few companies underneath producing a wide variety of different products in Asia.
Just from Google searching, it appears Siki Eagle Sarl operates at least 27 random e-commerce websites marketing to different demographics. If you go to the “About” section on any one of these websites, it lists them as the owner.
