Hi, I'm Winnie!

Artist and Moetleh founder Winnie Burch was born and raised in New York City where she still resides today. Winnie previously work at the World Trade Center and on September 11th, 2001 she heeded an internal warning not to go to the office. Her escape from tragedy had a profound impact on her life- she realized that life is precious and temporary- she vowed not to waste the second chance at life she had been given.

Winnie channeled her survival and grief into her artwork in an effort to bring peace to herself and others. She discovered the opportunity to take discarded scrap leather that would otherwise have been thrown away and repurpose it into one of kind leather goods and bags and Moetleh Designs was born. 

Winnie believes it is our duty to take care of each other and take care of our planet. Moetleh Designs exists to make an impact on the environment and bring joy to people's lives through beautiful one of a kind bags that are as unique as the person who carries it.
