Busy working...

 It's been snowing on and off these last couple of days. Thankfully, living in the most western part of Germany we're better off than the other states. So, while we're cooped up inside I get to work on sundry things that I have been neglecting, like backing up my system and storing vital data on my external drive.

Also, in compliance with the new packaging ordinance I am researching companies that supply 100% biodegradable packaging. Either that, or sign a contract with one of the government affiliated companies and pay them a yearly fee to recycle my packaging. The new ordinance stipulates that I am required to 'take back' the packaging from the customer. By signing the contract I will be exempt from that, however, by using the biodegradable packaging I will be exempt from the ordinance alltogether. Needless to say, the bio-packaging is not cheap! It is also limp, transparent and there are no cartons available as of yet. I guess it's down to what is the cheapest option. What a headache!

To differentiate from Dunibagz, by new bag collection will sell under a new label (see photo). The new line will be mostly solids, incorporate exciting stuff like studs, rivets, conchos, crystals and recycled materials...I think the new name is quite fitting, don't you think?


  1. That sounds like a real pain with the packaging but I suppose that things like that are necessary these days.
    I like the new name, it sounds very classy

  2. Love the new name and tags-- they sound and look very fitting. Good luck sifting through all the new regulations, and finding something affordable. :)

  3. Duni, how exciting! I can't wait to see your new line. Seems like the new year is going to be an exciting one for you! :)


  4. The name makes me more anxious to see the new line. The tags are fantastic and very professional looking--you definitely seem like you are on the right (and fast) track.
    Good luck with the packaging...


  5. Hope the packaging thing goes well!

    Those tags are great...uber-professional looking!

    I'm glad to see you're feeling better and are working toward your own website! I've been in a slump lately and am finding your story inspirational!

  6. Cool tags and name. Very fitting. Is the packaging ordinance supposed to help with the environment?

  7. Those tags are great! I hope everything works out with your packaging. I'm not sure I understand how you can "take back" the packaging from the customer though unless you are opening a storefront and not online? Anyway, you're making great progress!

  8. I love your new labels
    simple but puurfect and lovely :-)
    I wish you SUCCESS...

    (Its snowing again here :(
    I WISH it was spring Duni ....!!)

    ((HUGS)) for you and Sammy

  9. I can't wait to see what you create! I like the new labels.

  10. kidding that's a headache. Good for the earth of course, but difficult to work around. Sheesh.
