Meanderware's Moe Nadal has a lot on his mind all of the time. In addition to running a line of carry-all's, each one handmade and unique in their own right, Nadal dedicates much of his day to his two large dogs (described as "part chow-healer") in Harlem. It's not a simple feat—raising wild-ish animals in the concrete jungle—and nor is it a simple feat for a wild-ish human. After several years spent getting back to nature in Santa Fe, NM, Nadal moved back to the city to launch a brand of bags that would appeal to displaced spirits like himself. Using mostly materials found on the streets and even waterways of New York, Nadal is a rare species in a homogenous, mass-produced fashion world. You can read more about him in issue 72 of the FADER, on stands now.
