Week 5 - Your Mayfly is finished
Your Batch No.15 overshirt is almost ready to send! This week's final update from the factory shows pressing, quality checking and packing, ready to depart the factory and make their way to us for packing next week. We'll have every order on the way by mid July.

Week 2 - Your overshirt being cut
Shortly after you placed the order for your Mayfly Overshirt from Batch No.15, we let Sergio know how many of each fit, colour and size we wanted to order, and he got to work playing tetris - aka working out how to lay out every pattern piece to make the best use of our flannel, with minimum offcuts and wastage.
The plan is worked out on software that's then connected to the cutting machine, which you'll see in action in this week's video update.
With each piece cut, sewing soon begins!
Week 1 - Your fabric being woven
The brushed flannel we'll be using to make your new Mayfly overshirt has been woven especially, just 13.6 kilometers down the road from our factory.
Last month while it was being made, we were able to visit the mill while they were weaving to film the process from start to finish.
