I spend a LOT of time at the factory. Fortunately it's only 15 minutes from my house as well as 15 minutes from my office (one big triangle) . I love being there. Everyone is always busy and it feels like so much is getting done. In this photo Daniel is working at the cutting table. Some of my fabric is ready to be cut for Spring 2011 samples.
Every day the ladies cook lunch. I loved this noodle soup so much I had to take a photograph of it. The head seamstress just whipped it up for the everyone. Delicious. I think she could open a noodle soup restaurant.
Here Judy and Whitney (from Ibex) are reviewing specs for one of her orders while I happily eat my noodle soup. It takes a lot of work to get the clothes made. There are so many details to pay attention to.
The factory sews for about 10 different companies. They have a lot to keep up with. Being around a lot helps things move along smoothly and I can constantly check in on how everything is coming together.
I just love seeing things being made. Doesn't everyone? I'll make a video soon to show how some of the machinery works. Lots to share.
