FOUNDER, OWNER & MANAGING DIRECTOR
The Wren Design was founded by Wendren Setzer in 2008 when took the decision to resign from her job as a textile designer at a clothing factory. She found that working for a large corporation was unfulfilling and wanted to take on a new challenge. Finding herself in need of a handbag, she decided to put her own design skills to use and made her own. This became her first product and so she launched into her new career as an entrepreneur. By starting a business that was more in keeping with her own design ideas, she had the freedom to apply a more innovative approach to product development. Her belief in the value of good workmanship over mass-produced products, designing with kind consideration for the earth and its people has served as the central principle around which the business has evolved. She has kept a practical, hands-on approach to the business ever since.Watch video 2020 STUDIO VIDEO
