About The Artist
Morgan Abbott • Oakland, CA
Clothing & Accessories • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE
MoMurray is a one-woman, slow fashion shop nestled in Oakland, CA, carrying bags for all genders in a rainbow of colors and bespoke styles, key rings, wallets, and aprons - a best seller. Operating since 2013, Morgan makes everything by hand and with an old industrial sewing machine, hand-hammering copper rivets into waxed canvas because it feels and behaves like leather, it’s weather-proof and takes on more character as it wears. MoMurray is where beauty meets function and feels fabulous!
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I started making bags in 2013, because at 5’1” most bags drag the ground when I hold the handle. I started making bags out of a personal need, but continued for the love of making. I'm working the slow bag movement. Materials are cut with a pair of scissors, everything is sewn on an old industrial machine, and copper rivets are hammered by hand. I make the things I want to use - things that will last. From design to production - this is a one woman show.
