HOW IT STARTED
I'm Malia, the owner/maker at McSology. McSology began in 2009 as a collaboration between a textile product designer and a craft bartender. For over 10 years, I have made and perfected two items that are an essential part of the cocktail-making ritual: Lewis Bags and Mallets.
Our products are designed for those who value durable and functional American-made products by a small family business. Each Lewis Bag is sewn to the highest standard, is built to last, and is made in Seattle, Washington, USA.
McSology's product line is available exclusively on this website and in our Etsy shop. McSology takes a firm stance against Amazon, where a number of sellers continue to sell knock-off versions of our products.
Many thanks for supporting our Native Hawaiian, woman-owned small business!
PRaise & Press
