Last night I got the final update before the Chinese New Year. Here’s the news – I’ll get a final sample bag in black with no custom hardware. This isn’t great because:
1. I’m not offering a bag in black! They couldn’t get the leather in colors I’ve picked delivered to the factory in time to make the sample.
2. I’m dying to see the custom hardware – you know, with the logo on it, etc. If I can’t see it…well it makes it really difficult to approve, as you might imagine.
However, its not terrible news because:
1. Even without the bag, I’m moving on with the website with placeholders and illustrations. I’m actually more excited about this than the other photo shoot I had planned!
2. The factory is still on track to have the bags done in March, which will get them here in April. Which means I will hit my goal. NICE.
Wanted to keep you all in the loop. Things are moving along. And I’m loving it!
