Research for SHISAKO

Research for SHISAKO

The first few years in the journey was researching and prototyping product development.

Vietnam was one of the first countries that was a potential candidate when it came to sourcing makers. 

In 2018, Shannon went for ten days to tour a few small factories.

Here are pictures of the first prototype (that did not make the cut in Collection 1) - a super simple belt bag that was made to be convertible to cross body.


Below are a pair of shoes tested and the team at a small factory in Vietnam.




Even though SHISAKO decided not to work in Vietnam, Shannon had a wonderful time there.

She would definitely return for a vacation; the people, places and food are unforgettable.
