Aasta kokkuvõte / Year 2016

Jaanuari lõpus 2016. aastal valmisid esimesed DarkroomCat’i kotid sarjast Aelevad kassid. Natuke aega hiljem ühines Meistrite sarja esimene portree Ernst.

Aelevaid kasse oli alguses nelja värvi – must, roheline, kollane, punane. Jaanuarist märtsini toimus jaht roosale toonile, ning kevadel sai viienda värvina valmis ka helehallil põhjal roosade kassidega Aelevate kassidega kott. Kotil on kassidega sama tooni roosad sangad.

Suve hakul lisandusid poekottide kõrvale väikesed prillikotid, Aelevate kasside XS-id, samuti neljas värvitoonis – must, roheline, kollane, punane.

Suvel nägi ilmavalgust ka pärast mõningasi kapriisseid värviproove sinine kott valgete kassidega. Sinine sai eriti särav, just nagu juulikuu taevas.

Sügise poole muutus Ernsti kujundus tumepruunist taustast üleni heledaks, nii et kui enne oli portree ühel küljel ja teine külg oli pruun, siis nüüd on portree mõlemal poolel ja kotti saab kanda mõlemat pidi ning Ernst näeb alati välja. Koti sangad on pruunid.

Hilissügisel, kui väljas juba päris pime, ilmus Öökass. Must tugevast riidest kott, mille peal helendamas (vajadusel) üks vonkleva sabaga helkurkass.

Oktoobris tulid ka postkaardid, mis said lisa novembris ja nende valik täieneb ning neid tuleb ikka juurde.

Novembris said valmis helkurid Ernstiga, mida kotiostjale kaasa pakkuda pimedal ajal.

Detsembris tuli musta Öökassi koti kõrvale väike, punane riidest kott samuti helkurkassiga, mis sai nimeks Öökassipoeg. See kott on põhiliselt mõeldud lastele, kuid miks mitte ka täiskasvanutele, mahutades ikka just selle kõige vajalikuma.

Samaaegselt lastekotiga tuli ka esimene partii torusalle – must, punane, roheline, kollane, sinine. Need on eriti ägedad ja positiivsed! Sobivad salli alla ja salli asemele, mütsi alla ja mütsiks, ratsa- ja rattakiivri alla.

Ja ongi aastaring täis. Varsti on DarkroomCat 1 aastane. Mis kott tuleb sünnipäevaks välja? Varsti näete!

Tagasisidet on olnud palju, nii head kui halba, mõlemad on väga teretulnud, kõik mõtted ja arvamised aitavad toodetel muutuda paremaks, kandjasõbralikumaks ja tugevdada kaubamärgi vundamenti.

Uuel aastal võib oodata kindlasti uusi värvitoone, uut meistrit, ehk ka mõnd uut looma? Saavad selgeks tähistused nagu L, M, S, XS. Aga XL? Elame-näeme!

Aitäh kõikidele kotiostjatele ja tagasiside andjatele, reisikaaslastele ja kassisõpradele, riidest koti sõpradele ja lihtsalt sõpradele. Aitäh kõigile toetajatele, pöialthoidjatele, innustajatele, ideede andjatele, kritiseerijatele. Ja eriti suur tänu kõigile neile, kes on saatnud pilte! Kohtumiseni uuel aastal !

At the end of January 2016 came to light first four of Idle Cats cotton bag series. Just a bit later, Ernst joined them. The first of the Masters series.

At the beginning there were four colours – black, red, green and yellow. Next colour was to be pale pink and this was so difficult colour to get that hunt for pink lasted 3 months – from January to March. Finally there it was – pale pink cats on a pale gray background. Handles as the same colour as cats.

Early summer little Idle Cats and XS’s were ready – little bags for sunglasses or mobile chargers.  They were four of them – black, red, green and yellow.

After some resistant, a blue cat-bag was ready. Blue as bright as the sky of July. Absolutely gorgeous!

Autumn was about to arrive when Ernst changed its style from chocolate brown background to natural white and ready to wear both sides. Handles remain brown.

At late autumn, when it was already dark outside, the Midnight Cat arrived. Black strong cotton bag with only one cat on its side – a reflector cat.

About the same time first postcards also were ready and the assortment continuously grow. Short after that came reflectors with Ernst on it, to give people to ware. Buy a bag, get a reflector as a gift.

In December, the little bags for little ones – Midnight Kitten appeared. Little red and strong cotton bag with one reflecting kitten on it – a bag for children. Or a grown-up, fitting all the most important things.

At the same time the first of the tubecats arrived. Black, red, green, blue and yellow. Wow are they energetic or what?! It suits everywhere – as a scarf, under a scarf, like a hat, under a hat, under a helmet .. you name it !

And this is the year of 2016. Soon DarkroomCat is 1 year old. What bag is ready to launch for birthday? You’ll see !

I have had a lot of reviews, good and bad. All of them are very important, all thoughts, ideas and remarks are helping products to get better, more user friendly and strengthen the foundation of the brand.

What to expect from new year to come ?  Certainly new colours, a new Master, perhaps a new animal edition ? The markings as XS, S, M, L are becoming clear. What about XL ? Wait and see !

Very, very big thanks to all who has give any feedback, all the travellers and cat-friends, friends of cotton bag and just friends. DarkroomCat thanks all the supporters, fans, enthusiasts, idea givers, criticizers. And the absolute great thanks to those who has sent all the photos of them and the cat-bag !

See you next year!
