Risks and challenges

Producing anything generally poses it's own set of challenges, however, with already one successful Kickstarter campaign under our belt, we are ready for our second! We continually maintain a positive working relationship with our factory who stands strong with our production and delivery times, however, there are always unforeseen circumstances that could arise such as a later delivery. With that being said, we have limited the number of quantities to be purchased and we have already submitted a projected units purchase order as a heads-up to our factory for planning. This allows extra time for materials sourcing and production planning for sewing as well as planning for shipment.
