Northern Goods Co. Update

The new Keyclip we've been working on

The last couple of months has been heavy. Holding down 3 jobs over Christmas did get on top of me but we made it through the other side with time to work on some new stuff for Northern Goods Co. The second product we've been developing is this Paracrord Keyclip, which differs from the original "Shorty" fob by having a heavy duty clasp and being double the thickness of the single weave fob.

We've got a new bunch of colours on the way too, including purple and red which is all very exciting. At this point we're still ironing out all the creases with the Keyclip but with any look these will be on the store in the next few weeks.

Is this something you would use for yourself, maybe see your partner using? What colours would you like to see? We're still perfecting it so any feedback is very helpful at this stage.

  3. I know you've mentioned purple and red, but what about burgundy?

  4. Cool idea! I like the blue, but a burgundy or just plain black would be rad too.

  5. Love this. I agree on the burgundy or oxblood.

  6. I agree with the other folks, definitely a burgundy colour! A mustard would be good too. I do like the leather idea as well although it may be costly to make but I reckon that could be a really good seller! I'm going to ask my brother if it's something he would be interested in, then I know for birthdays and christmas - he looses everything so this may be handy! Also I like the name 'shorty' it fits nicely

    I admire your drive to work with 3 jobs. I did 2 and found it difficult. It'll all pay off for you Mat im certain!

    Cheers for the comment about the etsy! I've been making some brooches using shrink plastic, the designs are more sketchy than my usual style, I've had so much fun just doodling away though - especially when it comes to packaging! I'm still thinking of ways to package items at the moment. I've done some hand drawn notebooks too that I'm excited to show. I just hope people like them. Also going to offer custom portraits of people and pets etc... and perhaps website designs too. It's pricing everything I'm rubbish with, did you find that difficult? My brother studied business so I'm hoping he'll help me out a bit in that department! But yeah, as you can probably tell by this huge paragraph - im pretty excited for the first time in a while!

  8. How exciting! I am glad to see it working out well. My feedback is, having more range of colours such as dark pink, black, multi coloured etc. I am loving the camoflage one at the moment!

    Matt, have you thought of a doing a longer version that hangs down (ie - http://i.imgur.com/zgflWyG.jpg )I don't know if this is possible or not? It depends on whether the Paracord comes in set lengths or not, DW.

  12. Nice one! It's good to see you producing new things so soon. It's very motivating! I'd like to see a picture like this one with the "shorty" which is a pretty good name I think, just to see how long it is and where it hits. Personally I find myself leaning towards the short one but that's just because I'm used to always wearing a carabiniere, and not the large ones.
    Leather would be cool in these and also switching up to possibly gold or anodized metal pieces. The amount of color combinations would be insane.
    I like the colors you guys currently offer but I think darker colors would look good. That's what I find myself leaning more towards. Something that won't stand out to much from the pants i'm wearing.
    None the less the way you have them photographed on your etsy makes me want one in every color!

  13. Very nice Mat, are Northern Goods Co your brainchild? Would be good to feature them on my blog if they are. Give me a shout and we'll sort something out.

  14. I do like these a lot, it's a shame I wasn't organised enough to order one for my friend at Christmas time. Don't worry though cos there's lots of men in my life to buy for (not in a weird way, I just mean I have a lot of brothers!), and a few girls who'd appreciate this too
