Wolf & Maiden are on a mission to improve the things and spaces we use everyday; to invite the ‘extra’ordinary into our environments.

 

The team, Wade Ross and Gilles Pretorius, have a vision to challenge the ordinary through creating exceptionally crafted objects, and in doing so to empower up-and-coming craftspeople, designers and artists.

 

Wade let us know how it all began:

 

I started the business at the beginning of last year with a friend of mine (who’s subsequently gone her own way). We started it with the intention of designing and making beautiful products that were designed to be honest; to do what they promised, last. I started making leather products in my bedroom, and gradually moved into wooden lighting and then furniture.

 

I have no formal design training, so I would hand draw all my designs. I met Gilles through an industry connection, he had his own furniture design business. I got him to start doing the CAD renderings of my drawings so I could communicate easier with my manufacturers. We realized we had similar ideas, and eventually I convinced him to partner with me.

 

As Wolf & Maiden they design and manufacture furniture, lighting, home wares, hand-illustrated fabric, clothing, accessories, jewellery and stationery.
