Introducing...from Norway: MOO!


The brands @ northbound are never dull, normal or highly commercial...No, they're authentic, honest companies driven by inspirational designers who are dead serious about their work, but with a big unpretentious fun factor.

So, let's meet Karianne! The designer of MOO Norway. Karianne didn't just want to design bags. She fell in love with leather first. And remembering how she always got annoyed not being able to find a nice laptop bag, she decided to combine her love for leather and her quest to make herself a laptop bag. Sounds simple, but it's been a journey! In Argentina she knew she would find the best leather, but to find the quality, the honest craftsmanship and the specific softness and sturdy look of the leather...that didn't just happen overnight.

But, here she is know! 8 years in the business. Creating the most beautiful and fun designs of stunning quality. MOO bags will grow old with you, becoming more beautiful every year. 

And, important for us, it's an honest product. Hand made, dyed with vegetable tannins and made of leather from happy cows! Karianne likes to emphazise that. She has personalized some of the cows. Carmen, Angelica, Carlos...they're not shy to tell their story. Come and see them in our Pop-Up store! Also, the bags all refer to something Cowy: the Sassy Cow, the Quick Fix Cow. FUN!
