brooklyn, we go hard: d’emploi
I visited Kyle Mosholder at his studio in Greenpoint a few days ago. Kyle is owner, designer, and creative director extraordinaire for his label D’emploi. I met Kyle over the summer while perusing the Renegade Craft Fair in McCarren Park. I was really enthused about his stuff and we hit it off. I knew I had to check out his studio.
Kyle’s laidback attitude, passion for the craft, and espresso machine made for a great chill sesh. I also got to check out some of his newest bags, made out of recycled sail cloth, and other goods.
These bike bags are definitely a piece I want to invest in. Hook’em onto your belt for a good place to stash your extra junk when cruising around the city.
Educated in sculpture and drawing, making bags seemed to be a logical step. Kyle does all the sewing of the bags himself on a Depression-era Singer sewing machine and all the fabrics are domestically sourced.
Simply, D’emploi is a super rad label from a super rad dude.
