Hey there, here we are with April nearly drawing to a close. We've had some developments with supplies, stocking, etc and wanted to update you all.
Unfortunately, our coutil wholesaler in the UK is closed indefinitely due to COVID-19. We had a large pending order with them which was not processed before their closure. We had a lot of coutil stocked up, but we've sold a lot of kits over the past 6 weeks. We are now at a point where we must stop restocking kits so that we can reserve our remaining coutil stock for our own corset inventory.
This means corset kits will not be restocked for the foreseeable future. We understand this is disappointing. We recommend shopping with Richard the Thread, Corsetmaking.com, or Burnley & Trowbridge for your corsetry and staymaking needs.
Wooden Busks & Patterns
However, we have good news on the busk and pattern front. Both of our local sources for these items are up and running at limited capacity, which means we can continue to print more patterns. Our busk manufacturer is working on an order for us this week, so these will be restocked very soon.
The team is working from their homes on backorders and stock corsets. We'll start updating website inventory with new stock shortly. Starting next week, Allison will be back working solo in the studio, which will increase our productivity as well. Our goal is to have almost everything back in stock by approximately July, though that will depend a bit on the whole coutil situation.
Thanks for reading and stay safe everyone!
