Meet The Face Behind


A BRIKA maker story

Megan, Laurie & Kristy

“Once our pattern is ready we'll transfer it to our screen and begin screen printing it onto the fabric.”

“There are many people just like me, forging their own path, making a career with their own two hands. ”

“A lot of our surface designs begin as sketches.”

Moko and Company is a design company based in Charlotte, North Carolina specializing in screen printed fabrics, surface designs, welcome tote bags, and handmade products. Moko and Co was founded by two sisters and their mother, Megan and Kristy (sisters) and Laurie (mother). Megan and Kristy were just teenagers when they started to sell handcrafted jewelry pieces. Over the years they learned several new techniques and took many classes that interested them; from sewing to screen printing, to calligraphy. Eventually, they decided to take themselves as serious Makers and Megan dove in full time working on the company.

Their love for travel, trying new things, long walks with their camera's, and doodling in the park have all influenced their designs. Taking their inspirations and combining them with their design techniques has developed the handmade, original, Moko and Co design aesthetic.

Why is making handmade goods important to you? 

There is great cultural significance in gift giving.  Gifts are symbols that represent our thoughts and feelings towards one another. Handmade gifts are little pieces of the makers soul that brings meaning and life to their products.  Handmade goods are treated with care and thought for the customer that will buy it and why they will buy it and the meaning behind it.  We love making handmade goods so we can offer our customers a little piece of our hearts.  Handmade goods tell a story and they are filled with meaning and thoughtfulness from the beginning. 

Who or what inspires you to do the work that you do? Why?   

Amy Butler has been my biggest inspiration.  I learned about Amy Butler as I began to sew a few years ago.  I was always drawn to her fabrics; I loved her designs and use of color.  She has taught me you can live the life you want to live and embrace your creativity. 

What did you want to be when you grew up?

We still don’t know what we want to be when we grow up!  We constantly want our company to grow and develop so in a year or two we may be sewers, screen printers, designers, photographers, ceramists, calligraphers, makers, doers, shakers, who knows!  That’s the beauty of owning your own company; you get to keep growing and never grow up. 


“I love it when I get to see my designs come to life.”
