Wolf & Badger is a B Corp Certified boutique (and online store). It features clothing, accessories, housewares, gifts and more made by independent brands and designers from all around the world. Their online marketplace is an amazing one-stop-shop for all things sustainably and ethically made, with quality and craftsmanship down to it’s core. I had the amazing opportunity to visit their newest location on the west coast. It was there, that I got the full scoop on all things stylish and sustainable, just in time for festival season.
Where, How and Why it Started
Located at 8500 Melrose Avenue, this brick and mortar Wolf & Badger store is on the premium end of West Hollywood. To no surprise, it has naturally drawn a crowd of high-profile celebrities and consumers since its grand opening in June of 2022.
The first Wolf & Badger store was founded by brothers Henry and George Graham in Notting Hill, England, in 2010. Their vision was to build a community of conscious consumers and ethical designer and brands. A marketplace that would thrive and grow into something fruitful and fair for everyone involved. After much success they opened a second location, followed by their online storefront WolfandBadger.com. This gave them a digital platform that embodied the same principals of their physical stores, on a much broader scale and connected ethical brands and consumers across the globe.
Then Wolf & Badger hopped across the pond, expanding into The United States. Opening a storefront in New York, just before landing a spot here in sunny Los Angeles.
The Wolf & Badger Standards
Full transparency, communication, and good practice is at the forefront of every brand sold through Wolf & Badger, to the consumer. Their vetting team works relentlessly for honest and fully evaluated products and brands. Every single product is sourced from independent designers and there is a formal vetting process guarantee, so you can feel good about the products you purchase and the people that made them.
The ultimate goal is to create a more human centered method of consumption. One by which we can buy high quality pieces that are thoughtfully made, that are timeless, that transcend all the “trends” and that last a lifetime. Wolf & Badger believes we can and should participate in the joys of fashion, while also being conscious of the the environment.
What you’ll find at Wolf & Badger
The best part of this platform and store is the variety of ethical and sustainable styles and products available, all in one place. The product range is so fabulously diverse, there is literally something for everyone. Wolf & Badger carries both women’s and men’s styles, from athleisure wear to kimono’s, motorcycle jackets to cufflinks and bowties. There’s a vast collection of home goods and decor, and even a bath and beauty category. This is an ethical shoppers dream come true and you simply have to see it to believe it. Someone pinch me.
