Cottage industry for custom cuben bags?

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking / backpacking is about more then just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environement they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remeber that although the same ultralight philosphy can be used in all envrionements that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone elses gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoing the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less then 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less then 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less then 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less then 1.4kg

I want a few custom made/sized cuben bags for some equipment - nothing too tricky in the design - quite simple - just the size is non-standard.
I can't be stuffed to do it myself - too busy. Anyone have any recommendations for a small maker of this type of thing? (Not Oookworks!)

I've got a few different things from Tread Lite Gear in the UK:

Despite paying for postage from UK, it works out super cheap. They work with a wide variety of materials and seem to be very happy to make custom orders. Well worth a look.
