A visit to the factory

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzGSKzko5zU

Last Friday I went to Wenzhou to visit the factory that makes the Banner Bags.

Linda greeted me kindly and showed me around their whole facilities, she showed me the machines that make the material they use to make tote bags for various companies.

I brought her a big banner in my backpack and followed her to the tailor room, where mr. Yang greeted us and we discussed the making of new prototypes.

This was a very fun trip and I made a video for you so I could give you some insight to what’s going on behind the scenes of The Banner Bag.

Thanks for watching. And please keep spreading the word. If you like this video, please share it and like it on youtube.
