Wolf & Badger has played a pivotal role in helping to re-shape the fashion retail market, being recognised as the go-to place for discovering independent ethical designers across the menswear, womenswear, jewellery, accessories, beauty, grooming and homeware categories. Wolf & Badger supplies customers through its website www.wolfandbadger.com, its recently opened 12,000sqft multi-purpose department store and events space in the new Coal Drops Yard development in Kings Cross, London and an established and thriving store in Soho, New York City.
The £4.5m investment secured by WHIreland will help further the ambitious growth plans driven by its co-founder brothers George and Henry Graham. This new capital will be utilised to accelerate the growth of the Wolf & Badger marketplace through building out its team and technology to optimise the customer experience, scale further in its core markets of the UK and US as well as internationally, and continue its development of new product verticals including homeware and beauty.
