This cost includes time for cutting, fusing the fabric, sewing and finishing the bags.
I've charged this at a standard rate you could expect to pay a skilled machinist of $24/hour (this includes a premium for superannuation etc).
As each bag is actually sewn by myself (with twenty years experience of producing these bags), it is reasonable to think production would take longer for other machinists and so cost closer to $35 per bag.
