Shipping Update: $10 credit note for backers ❤️

How are you? A few of you missed our email that we sent earlier in the month regarding our shipment delay, so I wanted to update you here as well! We also noticed that quite a few of you didn't claim your $10 credit note. You can use this however you wish! Thank you again for supporting our mission to create the Best Silk Blouse, Ever! 

When we launched our project we took into consideration the time it would take to produce our custom silk, cut and sew the material, quality control all of your blouses, have them shipped to us, and then shipped out to you. Unfortunately we didn’t allow enough time over the Chinese New Year holiday, and our manufacturers are three weeks behind schedule.

This means that we have a new estimated ship date of April 30th. We’re truly sorry we weren’t able to keep to our initial ship date of March 31st, and we’re working extremely hard to ensure that everything continues smoothly. Our blouses are now on their way to our warehouse and will be packed and shipped next week.

As a very small token of our appreciation we wanted to give everyone a $10 credit note to use at Popbasic.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this process, or if you would like to change your shipping address.

Lots of love (and Strawberries & Cream), Maddy + The Popbasic team.

      Hi Maddy! I just sent you an email but I'm trying to cover all my bases -- I've changed my addres since the last time you asked for one. Can anything be done about that? I'm so excited for my blouse!

      Hi Sara,

      Thank you for your feedback. Although we planned for the Chinese New Year in our initial outline, we did not anticipate this three week delay due to our manufacturer's backlog. This is not at all an excuse, and I'm extremely disappointed that we weren't able to keep to our initial shipping date of the 31st of March.

      I very much appreciate and respect the support of all of our backers and understand if you would prefer a refund. I want to carefully address our margins and why we chose a Chinese manufacturer. The best silk is found in China, not the USA, as are the best manfacturers for silk. We had spent a year prior to our launch searching the world for the best supplier to work with. This was a special Kickstarter price, and doesn't reflect the true cost of goods. A similar blouse made at the same manufacturer would sell for $200-$300 in the US. Once again, I'm truly sorry for this delay. Please let me know if you would like a refund.

      Come on this is kickstarter! It's common that 95% of the projects will be delay! And most of the projects don't give credit or anything at all. If you need something urgently go get from the shop! Don't worry Maddy. Im sure there are many others fully understand your situation and appreciated your compensation.

      Wow. I will try to be respectful and courteous. But, unless I am mistaken, we are all business people, trying to support other business people in their endeavors. Yes, some of your funding partners are not working persons but support your idea. I appreciate your respect for the holidays of the 3rd world countries that you are trying to respect while you at the same time underpaying them for products that you could contract with workers in the USA - and maybe meet your commitments to your backers. So, no, this is not acceptable. Your management is not savvy enough to know when local holidays area? You are not savvy enough business people to anticipate delays in your production? Yikes! This mid-west grown girl clearly has a heads up on your team! Quite frankly, you are already a forgotten spec on the coming market...
