I just got back from the tannery, and I wanted to let you know where we are with production of your Classic Weekender Duffel. You may remember from my previous update that the colors and textures of the leather were not matching. We started over from scratch, and the leather now looks even more beautiful, with none of the lightening or filminess we had seen previously.
The colors all looked great and the soft and hard leather colors match, so I have approved all the leather to begin the production tan. This week we are finalizing the order to get that started.
Some colors take longer to make than others, so it is likely we will be receiving some colors earlier than others. We will start making bags as soon as leather arrives, so whichever color comes first will be made first. We will begin shipping weekly as bags are completed.
Once we get an update from the tannery on when the leather will be delivered, I will send out a revised shipping timeline for completed bags. It looks like we will be able to start shipping web orders by mid-June.
Again, please accept my apologies for the leather delays. This leather is noticeably more rich and beautiful and will make very beautiful bags.
