Tomorrow's a big day for Taaluma Totes. Since August, we've been designing backpacks, importing fabrics, and working with other students at Virginia Tech to get this project started. Up til now, we've been doing all this in the spare time we have after work and class. As of 5pm tomorrow (Alley's final hour working for THE MAN), we'll both be working on Taaluma Totes full-time.
We're taking paycuts (to a whopping $0.00/week) and neither of us have ever done any sewing, marketing, backpack design, or any of the things you probably need to know to get a business like this off the ground. But we're stoked and we're happier than ever--and THAT is what it's gonna take to make this work.
Wish us luck and let us know what YOU want to see from Taaluma Totes. What countries would you like to see our backpacks paired with? Do you want to see them sold in stores? Online? On your campus? Put the comments section below to use and let's build this business together.
