Molletta Design definitely has their finger on the pulse of what makes the Bay Area tick. Bikes? Check. Moustaches? Check. Mustaches for bikes? Double check. That’s right; Modern Mouse now carries a variety of felt facial hair for your currently clean-shaven bicycle, as well as the rest of Molletta Design’s line of velo-related products. One of the great things about living in sunny California is that there’s rarely an excuse to stay off your bike, and the bike culture that thrives here is like no other (take a walk/ride down San Francisco’s Valencia Street for proof). We’re happy to welcome co-designers Melissa and Ignazio Lacitignola to the Modern Mouse famiglia!

The Moletta Design story:

In our studio, you will find us – Ignazio and Melissa. Ignazio is an industrial and graphic designer from Milan with a great fashion sense and a really awesome accent and Melissa is a graphic designer/photographer from San Francisco and is still in love with bikes even after being hit by a car while on her daily cycling commute to the office. We are married and living in San Francisco, CA in front of the Golden Gate Park, and life couldn’t get much better than us.

In my other life…

In Melissa’a other life she is the Community Orchestrator for Delivering Happiness helping spread the movement of happiness by building out a solid passionate communities of people with the same goal in mind – happiness. And Ignazio is a freelance web graphic/user interface designer.

Did you know…

Did you know that everything we sell is 100% handmade? Not only handmade, these bad boys are HOMEmade, too. ‘Cause that’s where we make them. In our home. With the same creativity and passion that your mom uses to make chocolate chip cookies. So, you could say that we make homemade chocolate chip cookies for bikes, but then everyone would get confused.
