Details

Handcrafted by The Wildwoods in Victoria BC, Canada, using recycled, vintage and reclaimed materials. All wear, mending and idiosyncrasies are unique to vintage textiles. 

HOUSE OF WILDWOOD™ was created by wife and husband team, The Wildwoods, but it isn't any one person, nor is it any one idea. It exists in the liminal space between.

"If art has taught us anything, it's one person's trash is another person's treasure."

  • WE USE COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING

    To reduce the great waste associated with conventional packaging, we use compostable shipping materials, hang-tags and labels, printed with non-toxic inks, which can all be returned to the earth via your home compost.

  • WE KEEP WATER CLEAN

    We only use natural dyes, and hand-dye recycled textiles using leftover silkscreen cleaning solution in an effort to maintain our zero waste goals. Closed loop systems help contain chemicals and keep them out of our water.

  • WE USE RECYCLED TEXTILES

    By exclusively using recycled, vintage and reclaimed materials, we not only divert usable textile waste from landfills, but create one-of-a-kind garments and home goods, impossible to repeat.
