TOM BIHN Imago reviewed by Whatever

Kieu specializes with our bartack machine. Bartacking is a very efficient way to add extra reinforcement to stress area. We use a lot of bartacks.

Mo-Fong uses the Double Needle and Single Needle sewing machines and is also an expert at setting zippers.

Tao is an expert at Binding. She binds the inside seams of our bags, which prevents them from fraying (and they look nice too.) Tao also makes the handles of bags such as the Shop Bag.
