The Renaissance Collection
Since 2011, our mission at Wolf & Maiden is to make the worlds best Weekend Essentials. Items designed to go with you on all your weekend escapes, romantic adventures, and spontaneous get-aways. Your companion to life's many moments & memories.
Our focus us to do less, but better. For this reason, we focus on small batch production of our Renaissance Range to ensure the quality and attention to detail is maintained throughout. Each years Vintage is indicated with an emboss on the bag in Roman Numerals. Each item in each Vintage is also numbered, again in Roman Numerals. Unique and discreet. Like the Future Heirlooms they're designed to become.
We only use the finest organic materials in the assembly of our artefacts. From the vegetable tanned Novonappa leathers, to the linen thread. From the cotton webbing on our zippers, to our cast solid brass hardware, we ensure at every step that we use ultra durable, sustainable, and biodegradable materials. Our idea of sustainability is to buy something once, and repair and refurbish it as and when is needed. But should these artefacts be left discarded outside in the rain, you can rest easy on the knowledge that the worms will make easy lunch of them. This is sustainability... dust to dust.
Exclusively employing the traditional saddle stitch technique, using hand waxed linen thread on the finest French calf skin Novonappa, these water resistant and scratch proof artefacts will evolve and patina over the many decades of use. Designed with reparability at their core, our Renaissance Range are Future Heirlooms.
The Storyteller App.
After a quick initial setup, all it takes is a tap to the Wolf & Maiden logo on the bag and your most recent memory will be captured. What that 'memory' entails is up to you, but for a start it will automatically pull the local time, weather, date, and location along with the most recent image from your camera and the last played song. A perfect summary of a fleeting moment. Over time these memories will build into a story, your story. When the time comes to handover the bag to your next of kin, your legacy will be there embedded in the bag – ready to be relived, and even recreated.
What if heirlooms were more than just objects that you inherited – What if they could tell a story? What if, with a single tap, future generations could relive every journey you’ve been on, see where you’d been and what you’d done? That’s what Wolf & Maiden’s Renaissance Collection promises.
