Moop just had a birthday!

We  are so excited to celebrate another year with Moop!  We feel very fortunate that each and every one of you has helped us build this business from the practice of one (me) to an exciting and sustainable business model that provides a few great jobs to a few great women.   It's been 4 years of steady learning curves and exciting happenings and I'm looking forward to the many more!  Thanks for being so supportive and all send us the best thank you letters and it always makes me so happy to know our bags are being carried by such awesome people.  So, in honor of our birthday we're celebrating with a few new bags!

We've taken one of our most popular bags and made it with our newest most popular fabric, Waxed Canvas.  We just can't get enough of this stuff - it's perfect for Moop bags and I couldn't be happier to see all of our designs translated into such a great material.  You all have been requesting the small messenger in waxed canvas and well…here it is!  I've taken a few elements from the non-waxed canvas full size messenger bag and a few elements from the Small Messenger, added a few details and viola - the perfect bag!  Jeremy says it's his favorite bag yet.  It's sizing is just right…not too big, not too small…the same dimensions as the non-waxed small messenger.  The detailing is useful, tried and reliable.  It's very water resistant.  And, I've added d-rings to the bottom sides for those of you who ride bikes with our bags.  I'll be making a few adjustable straps upon request for use as a stabilizing strap to keep your bag from sliding down in front of you while riding your bike across town. 

We're initially offering this in our favorite dark brown waxed canvas and an heirloom tomato red which is in limited supply…so once the red is gone…that's it!  I just want to add:  I've never seen a red fabric I liked more than this red waxed canvas.  It's so so so nice.

You can find the new bags here and here.

And, I've made a few Paperbacks in the new heirloom tomato red as well (gah! they're so great!). 

I also want you all to know that we're offering free U.S. shipping on all orders from now until Monday, March  14th.  No code needed...just place your order and if you're having it shipped to the United States then you'll see zero dollars under shipping charges. :)

Thanks again for being so awesome!!

p.s. the free shipping offer is only valid on


  1. Happy Birthday Moop!
    I really enjoy reading your blog. So inspirational and a great insight into life on the other side of the Ocean.

  2. How crazy is this - I just celebrated my birthday on 10 March as well & as a present to myself I decided to finally get myself a moop bag. Now I just have to wait for it to come all the way to New Zealand! Happy Birthday to Moop.

  3. Happy Birthday!!!
    Love the new waxed canvas line up!
    Looking forward to seeing what this next year has in store for Moop. -Melanie
