March Bag Update



Let’s get to the bad news first.  We’re in the middle of a production delay.  It’s my least favorite kind– ambiguous.

The leather and hardware sourcing is taking longer than expected.  Some of delay is from the Chinese New Year break.  But the majority is just the work not being done as fast as I’d like, and there’s not a clear end date in sight.


In better news we had three focus groups/AB meet-ups that were awesome.  One here in Charleston, one in Cincinnati and a surprise visit to NYC.  I love meeting clients in person.  Hearing about your lives is what inspires us to make new products.  And, our ladies have such interesting goals, careers and hobbies.  Color me impressed.



We also talked about the current bag.  There was tons of great feedback and ideas.  One thing we kept hearing was the need for a larger model.  That’s exactly what we’re working on now.  Two models: an everyday and an air travel version.

When I have better news you’ll hear it first.  I’m off to circle back (ahem) with some of my favorite people.
