Designers are the heart and soul of every craft. They take a pure idea, a raw concept, and turn it into a beautiful piece. And they spend hundreds of hours so others can create it, too. Designers inspire people to create. To pick up a new skill. To feel accomplished.Unfortunately, designers are also victims. 💔
Every day, thousands of patterns are illegally copied, shared and re-distributed. Pattern piracy is a serious issue that, sooner or later, affects most if not all designers. Designers lose their fair pay for their work and unique creations. And in time, they lose their motivation and spirit. Many designers never recover.Designers deserve to be protected 💪
Taking down a piracy website or group is not a long-term solution. That is exactly why Ribblr was born.
Our goal is to support & protect designers and make their lives easier.
Ribblr ePattern is the only pattern format that fully protects designers. Unlike PDFs that can be downloaded, copied, and re-distributed, patterns on Ribblr can only be accessed by those who legally acquired them.
