Moglea was launched in May of 2012 by Chad and Meg Gleason. After moving to Chad's family farm in Audubon, Iowa, they bought a century-old letterpress and started creating the Moglea line. Meg sought to bring unexpected processes like dip dye and hand painting to the fine stationery market. Moglea moved the business to Des Moines, Iowa in the fall of 2018 where they continue to manufacture hand painted paper goods. They are currently working on expanding the Moglea line to include furniture and home goods in 2021.
