A short brief about Wolf & Badger,
Wolf & Badger was founded by brothers Henry & George Graham in 2010 with a small boutique in Notting Hill, expanding 2 years later to a second location in Mayfair. With a high global demand for independent design, Henry and George replicated the physical retail concept in an online platform, wolfandbadger.com. Since then the two London stores have transformed into a three-level, 12,000 square foot department store in Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross collaborating with restaurant partner hicce and many more seasonal and permanent, complementary concession partners. Now stateside, with a flagship store in Soho in New York, Wolf & Badger has become a global physical and online platform, reaching millions of customers worldwide.
How it all begin with BONABAG,
Everything started way before establishing BONABAG brand. This story begins from my childhood when my mother started up with a small atelier production and manufacturing leather bags and small leather goods. By years with her hard work which I always admired and looked up to, this atelier begun to expand. Eventually, I can say that I was kind of born and grew up in this business. By the time I finished up my education, I joined this business and with the power of second generations mother and daughter. It has been a great opportunity to get to know how business works, the ethics and experimenting with every kind of obstacle. I’ve witnessed that in this era of mass production and fast fashion consumption I wanted to choose craftsmanship and custom creation. That is how I decided to take my first steps creating BonaBag with a touch of passion. Its always been about authenticity and passion and uniqueness; by creating smartly designed carefully crafted timeless leather pieces. To keep this pure artisan legacy with the word “bona” which is representing “good, genuine, fortunate” believing that fortune favors the brave.
