Bandanas have officially dropped!
Well, here they are in all their glory!
I'm happy with how they came out, but instantly knew what I wanted to develop further with the design. It has been quite a job to collect the right vendors and printers for our work, with a lot of trial and error. Most of them are located far away so easily checking on test prints is not easy or always possible in a time crunch. At the moment they are too amazing to swap out, however, and have been extremely accommodating. It is part of the journey and we are making it work so far! Right now ESK Apparel is more of a test market for how I want to structure the company when we have the funding to do things right.
Incorporating higher-end materials and details like hem tags and freebee items for packaging are already starting to be implemented. This is a good first step in the direction we want to go in. I project that in the next year we will be able to bring full lines of tees, sweatshirts, and other accessories to the market with our custom graphics on them. Once those pieces become more known and profitable, I will be able to move on to creating clothing from the ground up; working with fabricators to fully incorporate our unique brand with not only the graphics used, but with the clothing's structure and materials as well.
Trying to be patient for that, but I can't wait! I keep reminding myself, slow your roll.. one foot in front of the other. We will get there.
