I design pieces that transition easily from work to play with textural details and modern lines. My goal is to make women feel confident and stand out from the crowd with flattering and comfortable pieces, and I personally test drive each style before producing it. I believe in supporting domestic manufacturing to minimize our carbon footprint. I also often use fabric leftover from mills and mass production.
All of the materials that go into making these bags are sourced locally and domestically when possible. I use #10 waxed canvas from Martexin, a family business that has been producing the fabric since the 1800’s. The liner fabric is surplus from the Carhartt factory. The sturdy, bridle weight leather used for handles and straps is US sourced and from a local California business. The hardware is solid brass and comes from another family business in the Midwest. The bags are constructed with double seams for durability, and areas that get the most stress are reinforced with solid brass rivets. 465 9th Street

Mira Blackman uses all natural, handmade and heritage textiles for her one of a kind clothing for women and men. Each piece is inspired by the textiles themselves and are often made without the use of patterns. Mira started sewing as a child in her home in Northern California. After years of travel and textile hoarding she finally began to share her stash. Thus her eponymous line was created. Like the textiles collected abroad, the silhouettes are inspired by traditional garments from around the world. Mira's clothing is textile forward, texture rich, designed to minimize waste, and honor the life of the fabric.
