Moop specializes in handmade bags for men, women and kids. Every bag is designed and crafted, start to finish, in their Pittsburgh studio. Once an order is placed, they begin the process of production (cutting, sewing, finishing) so your bag is made especially for you.
Featured at top is one of my favorites, The Letter Bag (in Rosewood). This is a bag with lots of little pockets, perfect for your cellphone, iPods, notebooks, craft projects, and more. It’s also deep enough also to carry at laptop up to 15″!

From the Moop site:

We love the maker’s life and are constantly looking for ways to be more connected to the people who make the things we love. We support small independent businesses who work hard to do what they love and find ourselves akin to the same practice. You will find us in the studio every day sewing, making, designing and sharing our experience via our blog. We have worked hard to establish a business that is always looking to improve and grow. We hold thoughtful design and product integrity to be among our achievements. We believe that form does follow function and work hard to bring you bags that hold up to our own high standards.
