“Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, the hills of the Highlands I forever love.”
On a hike through the Scottish Highlands with my dad, we stopped for dinner one night at the local pub and painted on the wall was this Robert Burns quote. My dad read it aloud and for some reason it stuck with me.
Fast forward a few years later, I was pondering a name for my shop. I knew I wanted to incorporate my travels and experiences somehow in the name. That's when this quote came back to me and all the wonderful memories from this trip. Wander & Rove was born.
Being a true wander at heart, my adventures have led me to discovering independent shops and designers from all over. I kept a running list everywhere I went of all the brands and shops I came across, in hopes of one day having my own space to share them with you. And here we are!
Wander & Rove is a contemporary womenswear, accessories and small goods shop. Offering a thoughtfully curated assortment of slow fashion, timeless pieces and well-made goods to last a lifetime. Wander & Rove brings together independent designers and makers from around the globe all under one roof for you to discover!
Hi! I’m Sarah the founder and owner of Wander & Rove! After years of studying and working in the fashion/retail industry I started to become frustrated with the lack of well-made products sold by the everyday retailer. I found myself constantly searching for sustainable pieces, made of quality materials that would last a lifetime. I longed for garments that were unique and timeless. Pieces that would not fall apart after a few wears. I began searching high and low, discovering wonderful brands that showcased beautifully made products. I knew I had to find a way to share these different brands with others. To allow you to shop at ease for quality and timeless pieces while learning more about where your garments are coming from and how they are being made.
Along side my fashion journey I am a true ‘wander’ at heart. I often find myself happiest ‘wandering and roving’ about in new places and discovering new things. I’ve spent many years traveling, discovering new brands and independent shops all around the world. These places have inspired me to bring my own shop to life and to have a place to bring all these incredible brands together. Wander & Rove was founded to bring light to the independent designers, small brands and makers out there. To the ones that are often hard to come by, truly unique and timeless.
Don’t forget to slow down, enjoy the little things in life and to ‘Wander & Rove’.
Thank you all for finding Wander & Rove, following along on this journey with me and supporting my dream!
