Manufacturing Update #5

Hello, backers!

We are officially in production. WOOO-HOOO!

For all of you who like to know the nitty-gritty details, here are a few.... each roll is made of 4 pieces of fabric: the back, the main pocket piece, the top of the zipper pocket and the tiny pocket above the main pockets (not counting the twill tape on the inside of the pockets). After cutting the fabric, the first step is sewing the zipper to the top of the zipper pocket. Here are a few pics of pieces with the zipper attached:

I’ll send more pics of each step as we get there so you can see your roll coming together. We are still on track for a mid-November shipping date, too!

Just for fun, we got a few rolls of funky colors (orange, red, bright blue and green) that weren't available in the original fabric. Rolls in these colors will be available in our store (www.tashtego.co) right after all the Kickstarter units are shipped.

Let me know if you have questions. I’ll be in touch.

Let’s roll!
