I’m happy to finally introduce a new set of tiny zip pouches! As most of you know, one of my core driving principles with Moop is the labor behind our bags, which is why I am always photographing and talking about the production process here at Moop. I have long held that everything around us is handmade, it is just more often than not made by hands that are underpaid, undervalued and made to be invisible. As I have grown, more and more people reach out to me for advice or consult for their own endeavors and while most of the time I don’t have the time to donate, this time I made time. These little pouches are stitched in Pittsburgh from the scrap cuts of our main bag production. We teamed up with a local organization offering transitional housing, job training and recovery services for individuals and families whose home and work lives have been in jeopardy or non-existent due to homelessness, joblessness, violence or drug abuse. I feel very lucky to have contributed to the growth of this project and am excited to see how their capabilities evolve over the next year or so. These little zip pouches were a fun thing to start with! Pick one up while you can! Colors will change based on availability as they are all cut from scraps and overstock hardware and will only be restocked as we make scrap.
