MOHOP FAB LAB | CHICAGO
NOW OPEN! We're launching with a sample sale as we finish building out our space. For the month of May, we're open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11-7 at 1659 West Chicago Avenue.
The FAB LAB is short for Fabrication Laboratory - it's an experiential concept store: grab MOHOP’s artisan+robot made goods off the shelf; design something interactively and have it custom made on demand; or attend a superfun DIY workshop. We’ll be producing our signature shoes and bags, plus home goods, jewelry, pet accessories, gifts, and whatever imagination inspires with the tech-enabled materials and processes we’ve been developing for over a decade.
MOHOP’s overall objective is to create better alternatives to mass production. Generally, stuff gets made in mass quantities and then marketed - leading to overconsumption, massive waste, environmental destruction, and exploitative labor practices. We’re developing alternate systems where we learn what you want or need, then make that item nearly immediately using digital design and fabrication technologies (plus some elbow grease).
We look forward to MAKING THINGS BETTER together with you!
DESIGNED AND CRAFTED BY AN ARTIST, AN ARCHITECT AND THEIR ROBOTS.
Justin Walker and Annie Mohaupt thoughtfully craft footwear, handbags and accessories by combining traditional artisanal techniques with emerging technologies.
We proudly produce our designs in the USA from sustainably sourced materials.
Ethically Made Fashion
Our passion is innovating cutting-edge design and engineering processes to craft heirloom-quality fashion accessories that are better for people, animals and the planet.
Built for Comfort
Every detail of our footwear is carefully considered: 3D-formed arches for support; generous cloud cushion for all-day comfort; tree-based midsoles for shock absorption; and padded uppers that mold to your foot.
Made for YOU
Our artisanal methods combined with our proprietary technology enables us to produce footwear, bags and accessories to order: on demand and in extended sizes to fit nearly every body.
