Mooi has always maintained a strong philosophy of sustainability in the creation of beautiful products. Striking the right balance between premium products and sustainable resources is one that Mooi have worked hard at since day one and is essential to the brands identity.
Mooi is crafted from genuine leather with designs that pass the test of time. Founder/designer Vash’s own personal easy-going style mirrors her design ethos - favouring the functional and fuss-free with a strong emphasis on beautiful texture.
All Mooi is handmade in their workshop in South Africa with materials sourced in Cape Town and Kwazulu Natal South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland. A small group of woman and men assemble the creations each day by hand.
Calf skin is an extremely delicate fabric and will naturally wear over time. To best maintain the appearance of calf skin hair when soiled, we suggest wiping smoothly and gently in the direction of the hair with a damp cloth, mild soap and water. Do not soak or use excessive water. Brushing with a soft brush will also help to keep the hair soft and fluffy and remove any dirt.
With a little love, Mooi leather will last a lifetime. If your bag is used regularly, leather should be conditioned and cleaned every 6 months. Use a quality leather cleaner and a soft rag to remove dirt and debris. Smooth leathers can be cleaned with saddle soap and a damp cloth. If no leather cleaner is available, use a slightly damp cotton cloth to remove any spills or marks.
"Mooi's designs maintain the fabulous spirit of Africa. Each bag is assembled from sustainable resources using techniques perfected over generations. Springbok, bovine and metallic splatters bring a distinctive edge to each individual piece." -Vash.
