Our journey began 25 years ago in Bali
Today we are still family-owned and family-run. Our obsessive attention to fit, lasting quality, and stellar customer service - combined with our love for cool, casual- chic style - has brought us many devoted followers.
But we are more than that - we are also wild about coffee, beautiful meals, spontaneous road trips, long novels and great music. And we are passionate about friends, family, community, taking care of our planet and giving back. It’s all connected.
Get to know us... we’re not just a sweater company.
Meet the founders & designer
Colombian-born designer Paola Buendia and co-owner Mark Donovan met as a undergraduates at Harvard. Spurred by a four month backpacking trip to Bali, they founded Wooden Ships in NYC in 1992, two years after graduation.
