Pulling the Pin
We’ve decided to pull the pin on the whole Bandung venture: some of the clothes needed mending, some were the wrong size, some of the prototype samples went missing. The list went on. Our Girl in Bandung wanted a lot more money, despite being paid a generous wage.
All in all, it was becoming a business that looked like never making a profit (at least for us).
However, we did have a good time along the way and staying at the Butterfly Hotel was a treat, with wonderful service.
Now it’s back to looking for a manufacturer, and a better way of conducting business.
Steep learning curve.
