Our Founder / CEO has been selling online since dawn of eCommerce in the mid- 1990's, and has built numerous successful online brands and product lines over the years, building and growing (and ultimately selling) popular ecommerce businesses. We believe in learning to crawl before we walk, then walk before we run, and so forth. Over the past 25 years we have always built our business organically, "a brick at a time" so to speak. Therefore, we started by designing and sourcing the simpler products first, and working our way up to more interesting, custom, handcrafted or otherwise unique products.
As opposed to outsourcing our labor to Asia or having our Pyps produced on a factory assembly line run by robots and oompaloompas, all of our Pyps are created right here in our Denver, Colorado labs by us: real human beings. We use a combination of state of the art 3D printers, old fashioned metal working, and real life glass blowers to create all of the parts and pieces that make up our highly engineered line of Pyptek Pyps. This means that every Pyptek Pyp is a little bit unique, and is built with love by an entire team of craftsmen and engineers before it gets to you. We take great pride in the love and science that goes into making each of our glass and metal pipes.
