The Making of P.MAI: Factory Tour

0 comments / Posted on by Phuong Mai

Hello, love!

We are finally back Stateside after visiting our factory in Dongguan, China, located just a few hours outside of Hong Kong. We wanted to take you behind the scenes. 

Our first impression was of the city itself. Though the air was sticky with humidity, Dongguan is surrounded by lush green mountains and several lakes and reservoirs. It felt like being in Florida or Texas during the summer. 

We feel lucky to have found a partner that cares about quality as much as we do. The factory has been producing quality soft goods for 30 years—from high-end designer handbags (think Versace) to high-performance luggage and laptop bags. Moreover, most employees have been happily working there between 5-10 years. It was easy to see why. 

Everyone we met had a special role that they took great pride in. From the leather cutter tinkering on the die cut machine, to the woman sewing the pleated corner of our interior lining, everyone worked together beautifully. It was astounding to see such high quality products being made right before our eyes. 

We're excited to have our backpack made on the same operating line as major brands and know we can trust our partners for the long term. We're still hoping to have the backpacks next month. In the meantime, check out the short video and photos below to learn more about how our backpacks are made. 

Thanks!
P.MAI
