It was a long voyage, but Michelle and I are back in the States after personally inspecting our first production of Agency Aspect bags.  Our factory partners, located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam are one of the leaders in global bag manufacturing.  We are grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with such a fantastic team of people who take such care and pride in their work. It was terrific to be onsite, side by side with them, answering questions and working out the last shipping details.

Our sewing line was B7.  Wow the bags look spectacular! They are the perfect hybrid of technical and luxury! The production quality is impeccable, as every detail, stitch, and feature has been carefully scrutinized and sewn.

The bags produced will be inspected, wrapped and boxed up in the next week. We anticipate the shipment to exit the factory the first week of August and receive them at our distribution center by mid-August.  Our Kickstarter backer's orders will be the first to be processed and fulfilled!  We are thrilled to deliver these badass bags to you and cannot wait to get your feedback after you receive them!

      @Rouslan Cherbina: Yes! We just got confirmation that the factory has shipped our production order today. We are looking forward to receiving them in California in the next 8-10 days. We will keep you updated as soon as we receive them to then ship out our backer’s orders! Thank you, Michelle and Liana
