We had a great trip to Vietnam to work with our manufacturing partners last week. The trip accomplished everything we had hoped and more–and it was a lot of fun too!
While it is possible these days for a brand to develop and manufacture products without ever traveling to their manufacturers, it’s not the way to get the best product. We also knew seeing everything with our own eyes was the only way to truly guarantee that all of the suppliers and factories were ones that we could be proud of. Basically, we want to know that we would have no problem with any of our backers walking in and seeing everything for themselves. We’re beyond satisfied with everything we saw and everyone we worked with.
Being there during production planning is also a great opportunity to improve upon little details before mass production, which we did as well.
Below is a look at the trip and process. Many more details, info and videos to come.
