MOkun is a San Francisco textiles company founded by artist and maker Moriah Okun, that creates made-to-order rope baskets, planters, trays, sculptural vessels, and more. each piece is coiled and stitched by Moriah on a sewing machine using rope (often hand-dyed), thread, and various other cords and natural fibers. the resulting forms are flexible and sturdy, playful and sophisticated, sculptural and functional. they all have a wonderful handmade quality that is uniquely MOkun.
Moriah draws upon her background in art and architecture and is inspired by avian architecture, traditional basketry, and sculptural weaving. she learned this technique of basketry from designer Doug Johnston at the haystack mountain school of crafts in Deer Isle, Maine.
