Here is the interest check and a little background info about these bags:

https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/falqmr/and_it_is_done/

TL;DR: My wife (G.C.W.) is a professional fashion designer and has some spare time, I like keyboards. I asked her to make me a bag. So she did. And I want you to be able to to take the opportunity to acquire those nice bags, too. The bags have two pockets: 1 main pocket for the keyboard and 1 outer pocket for cables and stuff.

We decided to run a first time ever group buy. Please don’t expect this to be done too professionally, but we are giving our best and want also to make it as transparent and fair as possible.
We will be taking orders until the 29th of March (Sunday).
We will start making the bags as soon we have orders.

The orders will be fulfilled in the following pattern: “first come, first serve”.

Depending on the amount of the overall orders and your country we expect you to have your bag(s) within 1-3 weeks.

Is it possible to make a bag like this style?
I saw 2 types of bag in your reddit post and I really love this style, so I want to have one or two of this if possible.

We are now offering a premium version of our keyboard bag.
It is made of soft artificial suede leather, is padded and feels really nice.
I have added the option to the starting post.

You don't have any dark blueish for the premium bag? It looks really good, but my favorite would be violet and a dark blue on the premium bag
