Many of you reading may remember the timeline test we did. the week we popped the great crate in for prototype and testing was the same week we found out our little guy was on his way...so 40 weeks or so later we met oliver...here is oliver in the first fully tested prototype on the day it arrived. Yup quicker to make a whole person
It's funny instead of always designing the product first we often have an existing relationship with a manufacturer and find out what else they can do for example our storage sacks came first... then the storage cushion was made and on a little factory visit we discovered the binding for the fatman. The process can be a windy old path but ultimately you get there... mostly not always but often.
we like to make it here to keep the process simple, great quality and lower miles travelled make our recyclable products even friendlier. in our interview series that runs on a monday i will be interview other amazing people who have fought the good fight to have their products made right here. I am expecting to learn alot and I am sure it will make for interesting reading
