Manufacturing Update #1
We are back with our long pending update.
First of all thank you so much for your love and support. It’s because of you that we are able to work on this exciting journey of bringing BauBax 2.0 jackets to life.
Our operations team have had their heads down for the last 2 months and we are very proud of them to have managed the execution of such a huge project by coordinating with 18 different factories.
In today's update we'll be addressing the 3 most frequently asked questions:
1. Final Project Timeline
April 2nd: Our operations team reached China and started with the pre-production work
April 15th: Kickstarter campaign ended: Our project became the #1 fashion Kickstarter project of all time - Again, Thanks to you all! :)
May 1st: We received the funding amount from Kickstarter along with the final list of backers (excluding the dropped pledges)
May 2nd: We sent out all the surveys to final backers via BackerKit. We still have 2,325 backers who haven't yet responded to the surveys. Please do that ASAP to avoid any delays in shipping.
May 3rd: We wired money to all the factories - we are working with 18 different factories on this project: 9 for accessories, 2 for trims, 2 textile mills for fabric manufacturing, 4 garment manufacturing factories, one for each style of our jackets, and 1 for packaging
May 5th: Manufacturing started - for all the accessories, trims, and fabrics (lead time - 45 days). See photos attached below.

3. Can I change my Shipping address?
Yes, you can. In case you’ll be traveling during the first 2 weeks of September, or for whatever reason you would like to have your shipping address changed, you can do that easily on BackerKit, until we lock the addresses. We plan on doing that sometime around end of August.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused due to a delay of 1 week in the estimated shipping date. We’ve made the BauBax 2.0 Jackets with a lot of love and attention to details. We can’t wait to have them delivered to you. We hope to see them become your #1 must-have item for all your future travels!
