I make bags and soft goods inspired by my travels afar and at home. From my studio in South Minneapolis, I create functional and durable bags, pouches, and cases. In 2020 I made the decision not to source any new materials, only using what was already in my studio (overstocked, salvaged, and recycled fabrics) allowing the materials to inform the designs and production practice for each piece. Many of us have had to make adjustments to our lives in 2020, choosing to shift Maat Mons’ production model to fit our current climate is not a big adjustment for me in the grand scheme of things. I can still make, create, adapt; and the pieces I’ll be bringing to the market this year will reflect the resiliency, resourcefulness, and inspiration behind that.
