Get to know DiFOLD better
Love the touch of the matte surface and the reasonable size (I don't have big hands). Plastic smell is minimal and is fading after using for a few days, so I expect it to be a non-issue soon. It's water-tight as advertised too. Initially I found the short metal cap a little fiddly to open or close, but since
I discovered leveraging the metal ring (and not see it as getting "in the way"), it's actually really easy to (un)screw the bottle. Well done to the design team for keeping the folded bottle as short as possible, without compromising the crucial (un)screwing experience. I actually find myself drinking more water because I enjoy the experience of using this bottle.
The bottle is "almost perfect" because of one minor issue. When a filled bottle is turned upside down (imagine how it's bumping around inside a bag), a small amount of water finds its way to the outer rim of the cap's inner surface. If at this moment you open (unscrew) the cap, the trapped water will escape and dribble onto your hand that's holding the bottle --- this has caught me off-guard a few times. I keep my bottle upright most of the time when travelling, so it's unlikely to be a big problem for me, but this could be an inconvenience to others.
Great collapsible bottle! Thanks to it, I started consuming more water and I carry it everywhere with me. Comfortable, high-quality, practical and ecological.
I was a Kickstarter backer and I am totally loving these bottles! Fantastic design, beautifully structured & soft material, and super easy to take with you wherever your next adventure takes you!
I have tried many reusable bottles over the years and I am happy I came across this one. The concept is super cool. It is sturdy, even though it is lite and compact. I originally ordered two, but one had a small crack in one of the joints where it folds. I reached out and the amazing customer service sent me a replacement. I look forward to loving and using my bottles for years to come. I look forward to seeing more products you will create.

You can wash the bottle by hand or put it in the dishwasher. All parts, including the internal silicone gasket in the cap and the silicone outer ring can be removed and cleaned individually.
We do recommend manual wash with a bottle brush because dishwashers are much more aggressive when it comes to temperatures and detergents.
If you prefer dishwashing please keep temperature up to 65 degrees and use a fragrance-free detergents to avoid any slight detergents odors. When placing the bottle in the dishwasher make sure nothing presses it to avoid unwanted deformations.
The Origami Bottle is designed to hold water. We do not recommend using it for coffee, tea or other drinks as stains and smells may occur.
The Origami Bottle is safe for hot and cold water but it’s not isothermal and its surface gets hot.
If you use it for hot water we recommend that you do not touch the hot surface to avoid burns. Use the cap ring instead.
We dare to say that NO other collapsible bottle is as sturdy as DiFOLD.
