Molly Vincent – Founder, We Are Wandering
I have always been drawn to the outdoors. Ever since I was a kid, if I wasn’t on the football field you could find me up a tree or collecting bugs (and accidentally letting them escape in my bedroom, true story). Before I was old enough to understand the real significance and importance of nature and the outdoors to us all, I already knew it was important to me.
When I got to the age where I could no longer spend the entire day in a tree, it was time to get a job. I had originally wanted to pursue a career in sports, but one fateful trip to St Ives changed my trajectory. After exploring all the fantastic independent shops, I was so inspired by the unique, hand made and sustainable items on offer. It had my mind racing with different creative ideas, and from that moment I knew I had to pursue a career in design.
Graphic Design has never really felt like a “job” to me. The fact that I could spend the entire day talking to customers about creative projects and exploring different illustration, photography and videography ideas and call it “work” has always felt amazing. I can hand on heart say I absolutely love my job. Combining my love for creativity and design with my passion for the outdoors felt like a natural step, and so I started designing clothing and equipment as We Are Wandering.
However, knowing that the fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to pollution and waste products, if I was going to do it, it had to be done right. Our clothing is created for people who love the outdoors and so it had to be able to help protect it too.

Plant A Tree
To help offset the carbon and environmental impact of the creation and distribution of our products, we plant a tree for every single order placed with us.
Many companies order in bulk and have tonnes of waste products at the end of the season. With us, this is not the case. Your product doesn’t exist until you order it, meaning we have zero waste products.
