I had the dream for Hopeless a few years ago. It was like a lightning bolt; I knew exactly what everything would look like, who my customers would be, and what the brand would stand for. So while I may never have thought I would be designing lingerie, it just made perfect sense as the culmination of everything I loved.

bio: Get Felt Up are Dan and Leah and we live an illustrious life of intrigue in Cleveland, Ohio. Actually, we live in an apartment with our four cats and in our spare time all we do is make things. So, if that is your personal definition of intrigue, we are living it. We met online in 2002. After a few weeks we decided to meet and hit it off instantly. Then, in March of 2007, we got married. So here we are in our apartment with our four cats and an Etsy shop! Wow, that was a quick synopsis of the last six years! Other sources of intrigue involve our love of independent film and mid-century modern design.
Moxie and Oliver: My work is an incorporation of traditional leather techniques, and some of my own modern twists. The leather that I use is a thick, tooling, leather. It is stiff on the first wear but softens up nicely. The thickness and strength of the leather means that, unlike most leather accessories, it will last a lifetime. My products are meant to be fashionable, but not “trendy”, so if you’re in the market to purchase a belt, wallet, purse, or another item that you would like to be able to use for the next ten to fifty years, you’ve come to the right place.
Clean lines, sharp edges.
