In 2011, we left Wales to fulfil a lifelong dream of heading to New Zealand with our young family. Taking time out to slow the pace of our busy lives and spend more quality time as a family was our ultimate plan.
In New Zealand, we embraced a simpler lifestyle and found a better work/life balance. Our passion for life was reignited by gaining more time to enjoy and appreciate the really important things in life! Our growing children, simple pleasures, good food and living in the moment.
Inspired by sunshine, rolling hills, vast forests, the sea and the sound of our children’s laughter, we watched our youngest son Gabriel grow and flourish as a product of this simple environment…climbing trees and running wild and free as our little wildling.
He became the inspiration behind our brand, nicknamed ‘Wolfie’ as a result of his adventurous spirit.
‘Willow’ has sentimental value as my favourite tree and the place my late Dad rests in my dreams – under the willow tree by a lake, at one with nature (as he was at his happiest). His grandson never met him but by bringing them together, the Wolfie and Willow brand encapsulates the free spirits of two amazing people, reminding us all to live lightly.
