I'm trying to raise funds to manufacture my first range of retro super functional urban bicycle friendly bags designed in East London.

The Goodordering range of bags brings all my bag designing experience together, from the selection of fabric right down to the inside branding and lining. Inspired by school bags and travel bags of the 70s and 80s, sports meets fashion without any compromise on functionality.The signature elements of the range are its many pockets and ultra durable all-around binding.

Having finalised the samples of the Goodordering range of bags, this project is to raise money to go towards the cost of manufacture. To keep prices down, I need to manufacture fairly large quantities of each style.  In order to place the minimum order for 4 styles, I will need £44,000, so all money will be going towards purchasing fabric, and getting the machines turned on in China.

I have spent the last 8 months meticulously designing, detailing and sampling the bags to ensure they are made to the highest standard, and visited and worked closely with the factory in China at every stage. I am now ready to launch the collection and need your help!

I will be using all my own savings towards funding the manufacture but I need £12,000 more to supplement what I have saved up.

See more images of each of the bags on this shop (yet to be stocked) here: http://goodordering.com

Some of the earlier samples and my design inspiration for this range can be seen here: http://goodordering.tumblr.com

Even if you are not able to back this project yourself, you could really support us by re-posting the link to this site to your friends and contacts. You never know which of your friends may be in the market for a new bag!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With the funding in place (fingers crossed) I will be pressing the 'manufacturing' button. This will take approximately 2 months and will then require 1 month for shipping. I aim to sell these bags through independent retailers including boutiques and bike stores as well as design shops and direct through the Goodordering e-commerce website.

I have also made some design decisions which elevate the bags from regular sports bags to higher-end pieces, including using metal zips (rather than nylon zips) as well as quality clips and buckles. As these bags are functional items there is always the risk that bits and pieces could break under the pressure of usage. As I am taking on full responsibility from design to manufacture, my returns policy will ensure complete quality satisfaction through a product guarantee, as this is really important to me, but also carries its own challenges.

All in all, I have much confidence in my manufacturing partners and strongly believe that this project will launch on time and on budget. The last element I need is the confidence and sufficient funding. Without the target funds from Kickstarter, the project will have to be delayed until I can raise this money, so please help me meet this ambitious but very worthwhile target.

FAQ

  • Yes, for the same price you can get a pair of any of the other 3 bags available too. We can sort out the exact style and colour details when I confirm your order before shipping.

    Last updated:
  • You will be able to select from all 4 colours shown in the images below, they are: FOREST GREEN, BROWN, MAROON, RUST (orange). We will be asking you what colour you would like when we get in contact to confirm details for your order.

    Last updated:
  • Yes it will. The dimensions are 1.8cm x 35.89cm x 24.71cm. It will fit quite snugly in this padded pocket but possibly not with a thick additional case.

  • It doesn't seem like you can do mulitple pledges, so if you would like to order more than one item, just 'back' one item and in the 'amount pledged' add the amount on for the other items you would like and then send me a note, and i will add it to my very organised spreadsheet and will be in touch anyway to confirm your total order. As long as the £ adds up, it should not be a problem!.

    Eg, i want a backpack AND a handlebar bag.

    Back the 'backpack' but make the total £75 (backpack £40, handle bar bag £35) and send me a note.

    Thanks!! Jacqui
