When I moved to San Francisco in July of 1999, I found a job in a Bamboo Blind Factory. That was where I learned to sew. As time went on, I started to see how useful sewing was. I started hemming my own pants, or should I say, letting out the hem, as I'm 6'4" tall. Then I started experimenting with making bags. I had many failed attempts, but I saw the potential and was determined to make a leather messenger bag. After this I started taking on small sewing projects to make extra money. After I married my wife Jeserie, I began teaching her how to sew using a sewing machine. She was a fast learner and we were able to take on more sewing work. At some point the the Bamboo Blind Factory laid me off and I started working for another company. We were struggling to make ends meet, so we decided we needed to take a risk and try opening our own Contract Sewing/Manufacturing company. And with the timing being right and a lot of luck, we have honed our craft more and more and are blessed with great customers and great family!
