Faux Paws Update! (Well that escalated quickly)
Updated: Mar 11, 2019
Wow. What a week it's been. Last Sunday I think we had 20 followers. Social media is super crazy like that sometimes!
Scarlet and I were absolutely not anticipating the level of interest that our fleecesuits received. At the moment we have over 100 suits on our waitlist. In order to realistically fulfill this many orders within the next few months, with the gracious financial backing of friends and family we are scaling up our little business into a larger workshop and hiring several artists and seamstresses here in Los Angeles.
One of the most tedious and time-consuming parts of the suit creation process is turning measurements into patterns. This is something that we can now automate with CAD software and commercial plotter/cutters. We are also going to be using special machines that alleviate the need to hand sew certain parts of the suit such as the paws. With all of these cool tech toys and extra paws on deck, we should be able to deliver in a timely manner.
Our ideal goal is being able to create several suits a week, if not one a day. Once we are settled into our new shop we will have a better idea of what our timeline is looking like. I will also be creating a Trello and assigning slots so everybody will have a clear idea of where they stand in line.
Building a company like Faux Paws has been a dream of mine since I was little. This community means so much to me and has been a big part of my life. Seeing things come together has been incredibly humbling and surreal, and none of this would have been possible without the help and support of every one of you. 🙏
I am super excited to be working with ya'll and I'm looking forward to this crazy adventure.
