I am Vanessa and he is Harry, and together we are the Wolf + Bear.
Our animal personas came to life through a talk over a campfire under a starry night sky. We explored each other’s past and present but also understood each other’s ideas and values. From this we learned we have a deep seeded passion for the environment and wanted to explore how we can bring awareness to the world on current global ecological issues. We asked the questions, how can we make an effort to reduce waste and keep the Earth clean for all living things? Then in turn, how can we make this notion achievable for everyone?
These simple ideas have now become the foundation of the Wolf + Bear Collective brand.
Based in Sydney, our initial intention was to create clothing that we could connect with, linking each garment with the story of the Wolf + Bear and feeling the same power we felt when exploring each others worlds. We decided on a unisex style, and over endless hours of designs, trials and samples, we had our first collection!
If we leap forward a year on, the mission of Wolf + Bear Collective is to establish, inform and uplift a community of Earth minded people. A group who value the ways of creating and sustaining a waste free life. That’s why we say we’re a clothing brand that is a little ‘extra’. By wearing a Wolf + Bear tee, it shows people you identify with these core values.
Wolf + Bear believe, if everyone can make a small change, together we will have a positive impact on our planet.
We have a very clear path that our business will follow a low impact route. We ensure everything that we source is ethical. We are proud that our fabrics are 90-100% cotton which are outsourced from an offshore company that are extremely transparent about their employees high working standards. We use recycled cotton neck labels, our inks are water based and our packaging is 100% recyclable or compostable, and sourced from other amazing Australian businesses. In regards to our body products, we use repurposed coffee grounds, 100% pure Australian made oils and organic ingredients.
But as proud as we are, that’s not to say we’re perfect.
Wolf + Bear are always striving to reach a zero- impact goal!
