"When are you restocking?"
We get this question a lot—totally understandable.
I need to give you a bit of context first. Near the end of 2020, we made the difficult decision to offshore production. Making our bags in Canada was wonderful, but not sustainable for our business.
The transition overseas wasn't exactly smooth. Made 10x more complicated because of COVID-19. Our first factory partner had to pull out 3 days before we began production in March because of the pandemic. We then spent months rejigging our supply chain (again) and running extensive tests and quality checks. We are fortunate to have found a wonderful supplier in Vietnam who aligns with our values around sustainable & ethical production.
But, just as we came within days of finishing production, Vietnam went into lockdown. Our factory partner closed down voluntarily in July to protect workers. And they were locked down until mid-October.
Unfortunately, the global shipping crisis has increased shipping prices and times. So we're unlikely to have inventory until January 2022 at the earliest.
I am so grateful for your patience and understanding. And I hope we can get you your bag soon!
