WHAT OUR HAPPY CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY
“My bag has been to Kenya and Cambodia, Peru and the Galapagos, India and Europe, Costa Rica and Canada, and of course, all over the place in the USA. Everywhere I go I get compliments, but mostly I just love how it fits my computer, feels soft and worn and fun, and makes it easier to meet new people.”
At WREN we believe that creativity happens when experiences are connected. The experiences that led to the creation of WREN are driving behind a cement truck and exploring a shoe factory. The creative outcome of connecting these two experiences is the innovative patent-pending approach of the company to making paper stitch-able, durable and practical.
Our journey began in 2008 and continues to unfold as we discover and make unusual connections.
