Designed and Hand Manufactured, Start to Finish
A short documentary on Moop, an independently owned canvas bag manufacturer based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In this video we sit down with owner, Wendy Downs, to learn about Moop’s bag-making process, their history, and some of the reasoning behind their decision making. Moop bags are designed and hand manufactured, start to finish, in their Pittsburgh, PA studio. They are committed to small batch manufacturing. They are a small and talented team, designing, making, packing and shipping each and every Moop bag. They seek out quality materials from time-tested manufacturers to ensure their bags will hold up to daily use. They are the mindful labor behind every Moop bag and are firm believers in concise, durable, well-crafted design.
In the past, Furnace has focused on companies and individuals that value design, craftsmanship, and hard work. This short documentary is an extension of those interest and past films. Learning about process, local economies and people finding fulfillment through their work is a constant topic that we like to address.
