What started as a journey with 'Stimagz', our flagship product, has now transformed into a mission to serve the neurodivergent community on a broader scale. With the same dedicated team and unchanged mission, we are excited to introduce our new brand name - Stimara.
Why 'Stimara'? We wanted to keep the "Stim" prefix to pay homage to our origins, and the root "ara" loosely translates to Sanctuary in Latin - which is exacly what we aim to be.
While our name has changed, our core values remain steadfast. We’re still dedicated to understanding your unique needs and creating products that bring comfort, function, and ease into your world.
In October of 2022, a Kickstarter campaign breathed life into our first product - Stimagz. Thanks to the incredible support of our community, we were able to manufacture Stimagz and ship them out to over 1,700 backers.
Our existence is a testament to your belief in our mission. We remain steadfast in our dedication to crafting innovative solutions for the unique challenges faced by the neurodivergent community.
Our vision for Stimara is crystal clear: to become the definitive shop for all things neurodivergent support.
We are unwavering in our mission to provide a platform where you can shop with absolute confidence, knowing each product is of the highest quality and meticulously crafted with your distinctive needs at heart.
As we chart our future, our ambition leads us to be more than just a brand; we aspire to be a beacon of trust and excellence in the neurodivergent community.
Every Stimara product comes backed by a 6-month warranty, testifying to our commitment to quality and durability.
If you encounter any issues with your purchase within this period, we pledge to repair, replace, or offer a suitable solution. It’s not just about providing products; it’s about ensuring they serve you consistently and reliably.
Stimara isn’t just a company, it's a reflection of its people. Every member of our team identifies as neurodivergent, ensuring our products are created from a place of genuine understanding and empathy. We design with our own needs in mind, confident that they will resonate with yours.
