Wildfang

wildfang.com

In 2013, Wildfang created a home for badass women everywhere. With the aim to empower every kind of woman to be the best possible version of herself, smashing gender roles and the patriarchy in the process. Sometimes this means giving women the confidence to rock a suit to the party. And other times it means supporting them in taking a stand against reproductive injustice, gender violence, labor inequality and, well, the current administration. Wildfang may be founded upon a woman’s right to menswear, but our core is founded upon a woman’s right to rights.

The Ultimate WF Pineapple Button Up
With premium construction and a unique print, this exclusive button up will be a closet staple for years to come. The cut and silhouette are expertly designed to shine on various body types, while still maintaining traditional menswear tailoring. £55

Wildfang was started by three women intent on breaking all the rules that begged to be broken. With little more than the money in their pockets and the shirts on their backs, CEO Emma Mcilroy, COO Julia Parsley, and Creative Director Taralyn Thuot quit their respective day jobs and pursued their collective daydream—creating a safe, supportive, inclusive, and inspiring space for women everywhere. Today they have expanded into a small business who eat, sleep and breathe fashion and feminism.

Maple XO is a jewellery business in Portland with a difference, making jewellery and accessories out of recycled skateboards and industrial skateboard waste. Fueled by passion to give back to the skateboarding community and also reducing the worlds carbon footprint, Maple XO believe in hard work, quality over quantity, and good people.

Lindsay Jo Holmes Owner/Founder of MapleXO

“Skateboarding helps you look at the world differently. Suddenly, parking curbs and empty pools are treasures, and a piece of plywood on wheels is your diary. We take pride in being the original creators of recycled skateboard jewelry, but at the end of the day, we owe all the credit back to skateboarding for the way it has opened our eyes to potential in what others consider garbage.
Thank you skateboarding.”
