John Cho Moore 

After stumbling across the site of John Cho Moore, I had to share this with you all. He actually comes from a background in Industrial Design, but chose to work on creating products that are longlasting vs being a part of fleeting consumerism. As you will see in this film, John hand crafts all of his pieces in San Francisco, starting with cutting and shaping the bamboo for the forms inside the bag, to utilizing materials for precise reasons. What a great story and film.

"I want my bags to be in the hands of people that appreciate what I'm doing and quality of the workmanship. There's a lot of work and love put in these bags. A lot of sweat."

John Cho Moore
