Handcrafted Leather Moss Bags by Julie Simon

I like to make things.

That is literally why Moss Bags started!

For over 12 years, I spent my time as a graphic/web designer. After years of sitting & working at a computer, I was ready for change.

And so…a few years back, with Project Runway as my inspiration & YouTube by my side, I started making. One night I grabbed my keys, found the only store open at 10:30pm, and bought my first sewing machine. I stayed up all night cutting fabric from old clothes, learning to sew, and creating. Without knowing it at the time, the idea of Moss Bags was born. 

Aside from a husband, two boys, several hides of leather, boxes of hardware, and upgraded machinery, not much has changed since that first night. I still sew each bag, set every rivet, and prepare all orders.

Moss Bags by Julie Simon and familyFashion & function come together with each handcrafted bag, wallet & accessory. Using full-grain leather that only gets better with age, and products ranging from earrings to backpacks, there truly is something for everyone.

The beauty is that quality leather wears in...not out. Moss Bags products are built to last. 

I am beyond thankful to be doing exactly what I am doing, and as time goes on, Moss Bags' product line continually unfolds like the changing of the seasons.
