It all started in a one bedroom apt. in Lauderdale by the Sea, FL.
This story begins with a sustainable party tumbler, your favorite party cups alter-ego. Growing up in South Florida and living an active outdoor lifestyle, husband/ wife team, Brandegee Pierce (Co-Founder/ Design Guru) and Danielle Del Sordo (Co-Founder/ Chief Storyteller) grew tired of seeing litter scattered across their beautiful beaches. This fueled Brandegee to design the first of it's kind vacuum insulated red party cup. After countless 3D-printed prototypes created in their home studio (a.k.a. the living room), he was determined to create the last party cup you will ever need and help put a stop to the billions of single use plastic cups that are tossed every year.
2018 Launched on Kickstarter
In 2018 we launched Pirani Life on Kickstarter and were 450% funded! Life quickly changed from our one bedroom apt. ocean living to small business hustle after this day.
The Pirani Party Tumbler was born
The first of it's kind, Pirani Insulated stackable tumbler was designed to keep the spirit of the occasion alive and your drinks hot or cold all while earning you some good environmental juju.
The apt. was quickly outgrown
Shortly after the success of our kickstarter, we were fulfilling orders from our living room and soon had to move out of our one bedroom apt. in our beloved Lauderdale by the Sea!
