the wild wander

The Wild Wander is the work of illustrator Clara Cline. Following in the footsteps of early American naturalists, it's inspired by dusty libraries, cluttered studies full of artifacts, and an abiding curiosity for forgotten history and the natural world.

Clara's hand-illustrated designs are printed with help from husband Tristan (and assistance from our team of trusty shop pets) in Flatland - our cedar-sided, backyard printing and wood working studio by the river in Richmond, Virginia. 

Being able to make things is an incredible opportunity, so we're committed to doing it the right way - to us that means not taking shortcuts when it comes to taking care of people or the environment. Our screen printed work is pulled by hand using environmentally-friendly water based inks, and we wash out our screens with citrus and soy-based cleaners. Our textiles are either made in the US or guaranteed fair trade, and our paper is made by US mills. We also create limited edition and one of a kind products using reclaimed textiles and wood. It's not always the easiest way, but it's one we're really proud of.
