TELL US ABOUT THE NAME BRYAR WOLF.
I started Bryar Wolf with a best friend, Paige Bruguier. I grew up on a street called Briar Hill and Paige grew up in a town called Wolf Pointe. We put them together to create Bryar Wolf. As soon as the name came to mind, we loved it, and it stuck!
WHO ARE THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE COMPANY?
Katie and Ross Lipson. Were a married couple living in Bend, Oregon. Katie is a seamstress with a love for travel and textiles. Katie sources all fabric and runs manufacturing. Ross has a business background and handles all sales, marketing and accounting.
WHAT TYPES OF PRODUCTS DO YOU MAKE?
We make decorative pillows out of textiles from all around the world. We recently have launched a bag line, including totes and clutches, made out of the same fabric as the pillows.
IS EVERYTHING HAND-CUT AND SEWN IN THE USA?
Everything we make we hand cut and sew in our studio in Bend, OR. We love the process, and pay close attention to the details. Keeping this in house allows us to keep our quality control strong.
YOUR FABRICS COME FROM VERY SPECIFIC ARTISANS IN VERY SPECIFIC GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATIONS. HOW DID THIS CHOICE COME ABOUT?
We’ve been obsessed with collecting textiles from all over the world for quite some time now. We choose our favorite fabrics and turn them into pillows. ¶
