It’s been a few years now that we have been in business and we really haven’t changed much about our bags (why mess with a good thing right??) so when we started kicking around the idea of making a change to the construction of our product, it wasn’t a decision we came to easily. That being said, I’m proud to introduce our new line of ReUsies that have a bias tape edge rather than a surged stitch. For those of you that aren’t sewers (myself included) that just means the way that we finish off the edge of the bag is different now, and the new way should be more durable. We were noticing that the stitching on our own ReUsies would frequently snag on the velcro. The bags were still functional, they just started looking a little more ‘ratty’ than we liked, no longer a problem with our new bags. Here are just a few of our cute new styles, be sure to check out our site to see them all!
I am also excited to introduce our newest partners in business, the Northwest Center! We’ve been a little busy here at ReUsies lately and have been looking for someone to help us fulfill our orders and we were lucky enough to find someone in our own backyards. The Northwest Center is a non-profit organization thats’ mission is to “promote the growth, development, and independence of people with disabilities though programs of education, rehabilitation, and work opportunity”. We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship. On our side it will free up some of the time we spend packing orders and on their side we hope that partnering with us will provide some great job training for their workers and open doors to future opportunities.
