Moop Shop's Profile

About

Moop specializes in handmade bags for men, women and kids. Every bag is designed and manufactured, start to finish, in our studio. We design, cut, prep, sew, photograph, model and ship everything we do. We are the mindful labor behind every Moop bag and we are firm believers in modern, concise, supremely crafted design.

We started our business right here on Etsy and love what it has helped us build. We would like to say thank you to Etsy for writing so many nice things about us and helping get the word out about Moop - you've provided an important foundation and we'll never forget it! Thanks a million!

**** INQUIRIES ****

Please direct all inquiries to Wendy at: info [!at] moopshop.com



All designs are original Moop® designs. We don't use other people's patterns, 'cause we make our own! We learn a lot by making things multiple times, which is why our bags are so finely crafted. Every bag is designed and manufactured, start to finish, in our Pittsburgh studio. We design, cut, prep, sew, photograph, model and ship everything we do. We are the mindful labor behind every Moop bag and are firm believers in modern, concise, supremely crafted design.

We love the maker's life and are constantly looking for ways to be more connected to the people who make the things we love. We support small independent businesses, fine manufacturing and handmade industrialists who work hard to do what they love and find ourselves akin to the same practice. You will find us in the studio every day sewing, making, designing and sharing our experience via our blog (moopshop.blogspot.com). We have worked hard to establish a business that is always working to improve and grow. We hold thoughtful design and product integrity to be among our achievements. We believe form does follow function and work hard to bring you bags that hold up to our own high standards.

Thanks for taking a look around, feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more about us, our process or our bags.

Love,
Moop
