We hope your July has been full of fun and relaxation! It's hard to believe this month is already over. It's been a busy one around here: Everything we need for production is now at our facility, and this week, we are completing our final sample testing before production starts! We're so excited that we're getting closer to sending out preorders.
Last month, we let you know that we were working on receiving our tank top fabric (the "ice blue" recycled polyester). Unfortunately, due to an issue between the fabric mill and our supplier, we needed to replace it with a new fabric. Luckily, we had some backup options on hand and were able to quickly secure a replacement!
The not-so-good news:
- While we're confident in this new fabric, it does mean that we are now a bit delayed, meaning our new projected delivery date for preorders is mid-September.
- The new fabric is 50% recycled polyester, 50% polyester. We are disappointed we can't offer a replacement that's 100% recycled, but we knew we couldn't sacrifice quality – and we knew this fabric would live up to our standards. We'll continue to seek out the best sustainable fabrics in the future.
The good news:
- This new fabric is similar to the old fabric: high quality, wicking, and ready for performance. And, it has a bit of stretch, is breathable and extremely comfortable. We're fully confident that it will hold up for the long run.
- And the best part: It will now match Cause I Run mint green!
We are incredibly sorry about this delay. But we really love this new fabric, and think you will too!
Here's a mockup of the new color:

As production begins, we'll start providing more frequent updates so you know exactly when preorders will ship (and when we'll officially launch our online store). We're so excited to be heading into this phase!
