Chinese Backpacks Factory in Philippines
I spent a few hours discussing the Backpack, they said,
“Maybe 5-7 times more difficult than normal.”

I have contracted to have three packs made, one out of easy to find materials as a test run, and two out of the special materials I purchased. Semi-fun to negotiate these deals, then again this is just annoying.

The Women was born in the Philippines to I guess, Chinese parents and the husband came from China at age 17, a nice team and could communicate with China or Taiwan where many backpack materials are made.

It is always a push to call these businesses factories, more of a house with a lot of room, or maybe two houses in this case. What was impressive was the showroom; they must have about 50 different packs on display.

It was a good day, I think I am reaching the level of education where I know how to make a backpacks better than most.

We are proceeding by me cutting out the patterns or templates from hard cardboard, something like poster board. The pack is 8 major components, I will be sitting around in my room now for a few days cutting up cardboard and making a mess. I suppose I will make two so I have a pattern of my own, in the event the whole deal goes south.

More or less this is a Chinese Family operation whereby one person speaks Tagalog, and good enough English.

I think they were a little amazed that I can make a backpack.
