Fancy seein’ you here.
You probably came here wondering how Wayward & Wild came to be, so here's the low down.
I'm Kolbi Lloyd, owner and designer behind Wayward & Wild. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest with a passion for outdoor exploration, travel, and creativity.
I grew up in a tiny little suburb outside of Portland, Oregon, and spent the majority of my youth creating and playing outside with my friends. A lot of time was spent camping, swimming, hiking, climbing (and falling out of) trees, and all the other great things that come with growing up in the outdoor playground of the Pacific Northwest. Those really were the moments that shaped me, and still play a huge influence on my life and design style today.
Wayward & Wild came to be in 2016 after attempting to go the more “traditional” route with work and life, but continually feeling unfulfilled in my day-to-day life. I wanted to create, I wanted to connect, I wanted to spend time traveling and doing rad things with rad humans.
I worked as a zip line guide and built Wayward & Wild on the side with my former business partner, Michelle, until it could fully stand on it’s own.
I truly believe in the power of some fresh air, creativity, & rad people, so the goal was to design a life and a business to reflect that.
I hope to inspire and represent the adventurous, wild ones, that have been shaped and inspired by their outdoorsy roots and travel pursuits, and the ones that push boundaries and take risks to live authentic and adventurous lives.
I don’t think I’ll l truly ever grow out of that free spirited and wild hearted phase, but I ain’t mad about it.
So whether you’ve been an adventurous spirit since birth, or just now discovering the wonder of nature and the outdoors and your own creativity.
Welcome to the Wayward & Wild fam,
Glad you’re here.
