Manufacturing Update #6 (and new prototype)
A quick manufacturing update…the pieces are coming together!
Here is the main pocket section for the navy color.
You can just see the twill tape on the inside that helps to keep items from falling out. The main pocket sections are done, as well as the zipper pocket. Now we just need to put all the pieces together, and we’ll be ready to go!
We are still on track for a mid-November delivery. In case you want to stock up on any other colors for Christmas presents, the store (www.tashtego.co) will go live right after the rewards have shipped. New colors include bright blue, bright green, orange and red (which were not available in the original fabric).
Also, here’s a look at what’s up next: as you know, we think tool rolls are a simple, compact way to carry everything from wrenches to makeup pencils. But no single tool roll can accommodate everything. Our solution? Detachable sections. Rather than a single roll, you can combine a left, middle and right section to accommodate whatever you want carry.
Want to carry a set of wrenches with your toiletries? Screwdrivers with watercolor brushes? No problem! You can do that.
Here is the first prototype:
What else do you want to carry? What sections should we design?
Let us know in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org - we will be looking for beta testers.
PS - Three weeks until we lock down addresses for shipping. For now, if your address changes, just go back to the survey and change it.
