Being a small business it’s important to know a little more ‘Behind the scenes’, I guess? So, here goes...
Meet our founder/owner Carrie; She’s a huge fan of Pizza!
OK so there’s a little more too... Born & raised in North Wales with a penchant for gritty True Crime dramas & podcasts Carrie is also 1/5th of genre blending emo-pop band Campfire Social. This might explain why we are so obsessed with making playlists for you guys!
If you follow us on social media, you’ll likely be familiar with Rumi our Chihuahua shaped adventure buddy (and the real Boss if we’re being honest) He provides the perfect company for road trips in our trusty Winona (Mazda Bongo Friendee)
You can usually find us paddleboarding around the beautiful lakes & beaches of North Wales. If not then try anywhere that has banging Coffee, a decent Red Wine on the menu or George Michael on the jukebox will do us rightly!
Coming from a background in fashion retail meant wardrobes (yes plural) full to the brim of trend driven clothes & a walk in specifically for shoes, all 238 pairs organized with polaroid pictures on the boxes for ease of choice.
Fast forward to 2013 Junkbox was born to make travel easier, to revive lightweight feelings of freedom & adventure, to breathe fresh air and surf waves of adrenaline without constraint.
Basically, let’s travel more, but with less!
Carrie designed her first collection of high quality, sustainable products to enable her to craft the perfect capsule wardrobe of colour-palette balanced mix-and-match clothing and accessories; lightweight & backpack-able.
Our impact on the environment is something we take very seriously, sourcing the best sustainable products & fabrics from UK based suppliers and manufacturers such as Stanley & Stella and Wonky Woolies.
We frequently use GOTS certified organic cotton from India, recycled polyester and acrylic yarn from China. Other credentials include; OCS Blended, OSC 100, GRS and Peta Approved Vegan.
Working with environmentally conscious companies that lead the way in using renewable resources, circular production and ethical working environments means we can be confident in minimizing our impact on the planet.
Our supply chain is certified by various independent bodies and standards such as The Fair Wear Foundation, demonstrating our work towards building healthy environmental practices.
All our orders are dispatched in compostable packaging derived from plant sources & designed to compost with food waste.
Ultimately, we love what we do & we hope you love what we make!
