We’re officially moved! It’s been such a hectic few months, but it’s finally done! The studio is back in its prime, organized and ready to go!
Health wise, we’re getting on better terms and have since diagnosed all the concerns that have been wearing me down the past few months. Physical therapy is on the checklist, as well as dispersing the heavier demanding business tasks into a schedule. So far, so good! Still some business transitioning to do, but a few plans for the future have been forming and the pieces are falling into place! I expect a few more months of changes until we’re running smoothly again, but expect some new announcements to come soon! Until then, I’ve got the final 200 Bandanas in two phases of packaging and production for the next two weeks, and then we’ll see where to jump next once every final order is fulfilled!
Lots of love from our trio, and thank you all so much once again for keeping us in your thoughts during the transition over the past few months, things are definitely starting to look up
Next batch of 100+ going down for final stitching and snaps! Almost all the way caught up through the end of December now. Was a big hurdle getting through the 400+ Bandana travesty, but I’m almost there Final days for orders to be placed before we transition to closed. All Bandanas have been marked down until sold out.
Just a final note since I haven’t been able to maintain our social media feeds consistently with everything else taking place, and won’t be able to get completely caught up until all these last orders up to January have shipped, comments have been disabled until I’m able to get replies out to all of those who have reached out. Thanks for understanding!
Also for those who missed yesterday’s update, all orders before #4138 have left our location and are awaiting final departure scans out of PDX. Latest updates for all last parcels should come by 01/29 at the latest.
I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but it will still be a very hectic and busy month of shipping for me. I received an inordinate amount of orders than what was anticipated for Nov/Dec, and I’ve been going non-stop for weeks on end getting each and every thing made to the specifications needed. If you read our last update, then you know that I’ll be making final preparations for closing UTH once all of these orders have shipped. I’ve been suffering from aches in my wrists, back, and legs which has made the long hours of cutting fabric, sewing, wrist work, difficult to do for extended periods of time Once again, I truly thank each and every one of you for every single order, and for supporting us along the way. If you want to pick up your final UTH Bandanas, I recommend doing so soon while our very final batches are building up for Jan/Feb. Every single order tremendously helps with our upcoming move, as well as clearing out what stock remains. Thank you all once again, happy holidays, and to a happier and healthier 2018
I’m still alive guys! Just barely surviving around here, and still got a long way to go until I’m finished. 109 more orders are up next for fulfillment, equating to days and days of more work to finish them all off and get them out the door. The hope is that every current active order will be shipped by the end of the month, as mostly all 300 or so products left are nearing completion. I’ve been pushing myself to the limits the past few months getting orders out as quickly as I can manage, but it’s still taking me longer than I had hoped. 60-80hr work weeks are taking its toll on my sanity and livelihood. Sadly, I’m realizing that I’ve pushed myself as far as my mind and body can take it, and the stress and body aches have become too much for me to handle on my own. I wish I could say I’ve been off on vacation sipping mimosas on a sandy beach, but no I’ve literally been a making-machine since October. I just want you all to truly know just how much work and time that I’ve dedicated to UTH instead of myself or my family, because there is just always so much that needs to be done to keep the business running as smoothly as possible (it’s actually quite the life-overtaking task, but I’m happy so many of you got to enjoy our bandanas while we’ve been around!). With all of that said, a very hard decision for 2018 has been made, but one that ultimately needs to happen for my family, and my livelihood while I can. Alongside the copious amounts of products I’ve been making for months on end, we’ve been reviewing the ins-and-outs of our finances, and the sad truth is we barely make enough profit to make it by after finances have been distributed back into the business for materials, and what’s left gets eaten up toward living costs. Sadly, after much thought it’s been decided that Unleash The Hounds will have to come to a close while some life changes are taking place for 2018. It’s been a very busy few years, oh goodness it’s flown by to be honest! But as my family continues to age, and I miss out on more moments I know that the time has come for a new chapter, a new adventure for us. Continued in comments,
Chelan Plaid! I’ve a sweet spot for the colors in this one! Handcrafted from authentic Pendleton Fabrics.

Nicholas has done it again! You guys may remember our snow adventure from a few weeks ago on Mt. Hood! This time around I tried my hand at recording some of the footage, and Nick comprised the visual video effects. View the full HQ behind the scenes video on our website’s homepage! (linked in bio) -
FINAL DAYS FOR 25% OFF SITEWIDE! All bandanas featured in this video have been linked in the video description directly on our Youtube channel!
Ahhh, the convenience of being able to bring work literally anywhere. We adventured out for our first astrophotography shoot before the snow sets in for the season. Pitch black, huddled in blankets walking through the tree line to see this! Packaging has to get made and folded somehow, might as well get it done with a starry night sky view! #behindthescenes

“We’re loving our Nana’s from @unleashthehounds .. I was so excited to get ours in the mail this week. We spent hours swimming, hiking, climbing trails, and digging in the sand and mud today and this thing stayed put ! Truly one of the highest quality bandanas I’ve ever seen... we’re in love ”
