Wooden Ships

Colombian-born designer Paola Buendia and co-owner Mark Donovan met as a undergraduates at Harvard. Spurred by a four month backpacking trip to Bali, they founded Wooden Ships in NYC in 1992, two years after graduation. Today, Wooden Ships is still family-owned and family-run. With obsessive attention to fit and lasting quality combined with Wooden Ship's love for cool, casual- chic style, they're more than just a sweater company.
