Made in Philippines Backpacks

Made in Philippines Backpacks
I am excited; I leave for Manila, Philippines on Thursday to evaluate two or three Backpack Bag Factories.

I am hoping to have the label.

Blog of Andy --- --- Backpack Design Survey
Quality is my only concern; say for example that I want to pay 40 U.S. Dollars per backpack for labor. In the USA, this would be about three hours of work at about 13 dollars per hour for the worker. While in the Philippines this is about two, maybe three days of work. This means one person could devote two days to making one bag, I believe going slow is good.

I am buying the materials through USA fabric brokers; this will insure there are no Asian copy games played.

I do hope these factories pan out; I am ready to see my effort become a reality.

Anyone wishing to help in the design please fill out the backpack survey to help me learn of end-users needs, I have ten years experience living out of backpack, but I am not you and you are not me, this bag is for all people, not just for me.
