The latest installment from the Goodordering factory. The factory has been hard at work with the shipment expected to leave the factory by the beginning of February 2013, not long now!
This photo shows a pile of the front and back panels of the Market shopper / pannier in forest green.
Here you can see how each panel sandwhiches (i think i just made that word up) a piece of foam for padding and extra structure, strength and protection. Each panel is constructed separately before being joined up to make the bag.
The factory in full swing, the panels pile up ready to be finished with the additional webbing straps. Further down in the factory the other processes are taking place.
Here we can see a bucket full of top lids from the pannier, these guys must have a very organised process going to keep track of all the panels in each of the 16 skus. There are 4 styles in 4 colours being made right now. I'm starting to get really excited about the shipment. There is still a lot more work to do in terms of organising the shipping, storage, accounts, importing, insurance... my head is exploding with things to do, but i know it will all come together in the end, fingers crossed!!
