Wooden Ships is an international brand sold nationwide in the US, Canada and now Australia!!
My name is Paola Buendía and I am a Colombian-born designer who launched the label after being inspired by a four-month pilgrimage to Bali!
Now operating completely out of Bali, we own our own factory to ensure that all aspects of production are fair and ethical. We believe that staff are critical to the success of any brand and therefore invest heavily in training. We are passionate about going above and beyond fair wages and conditions. We focus especially on empowering our beautiful female employees, who work so hard for us, by training them to use the knitting machines, which were traditionally operated by men.
As a company, Wooden Ships implements countless ways to reduce our footprint on the natural world and we are proud of all that we have achieved so far, but recognise that there is so much more that we can do to make a real difference!
