Production Update & Shipping Date
Thanks for everyone's patience and understanding on the harness production. I am doing everything I can to get the harnesses to you ASAP! My original goal was $5000 which is around 20 harnesses and I was really hoping we would sell maybe 100 harness. So when we sold 135 harnesses in the first 12 hours I was blown away and as of right now we are right around 1000 harness orders!
Our original estimated delivery of March was based on selling 100 harness tops so making 1000 harnesses by the end of march is a tall order. BUT we are still on track to shipping a majority of the harnesses by the end of march.
There are few daunting challenges that making 1000 harness presents. The biggest one being lead times on custom manufacturing. Most places have enough hardware in stock to make 100 harness but definitely not 1000. So that means they have to custom manufacture them which takes several weeks to months. Leather has a similar issue, they had to do special runs of leather for us which takes 6-10 weeks. To give you an idea of the size of the orders we made, we ordered around 80,000 individual pieces of hardware and 5000 square feet of leather. Thanks to the manufacturers and tanneries being willing to rush order everything, we should have all we need by the end march.
