Crywolf is a wonderful little company based in Toronto, Canada that was started by Stephanie Drabik & Rose Chang. Crywolf is their brain child (aka their brand). The girls first met in high school and bonded over a mutual interest in art and other hobbies (music, fashion, etc).
As the years passed and both people and things changed,
their friendship remained and similarities grew.
The name Crywolf is open to interpretation, but undeniably references the famous fable of the boy who cried wolf just one too many times.
There could be a very compelling reason for why they chose this name (please insert here), or maybe it was mainly because they just plain
liked the name! In short, the Crywolf vision is a mishmash
of their strange, fantastic, quirky and whimsical ideas.
The main concept behind Crywolf is producing limited edition, collectable, wearable and affordable pieces of art. All of their designs are based on the girls drawings, which they often collaborate on. Their clothing is hand-printed by them as well, making it extra special!
A strong DIY attitude has fueled their work ethic
and been their driving force.
Their inspiration comes from "artists and crafts people
who strive to do what they love, do it themselves,
and make a living out of it".
Since starting out in 2005, slinging 1" buttons out of boxes to random strangers on the street, Crywolf has come a long way to where it is today.They now produce, buttons, pins, bags/totes, hoodies, t's, tanks, mouse pads, plushies, zipper pulls and decals. Like any small company,they have had successess along the way, (with some bumps on the road), but with the help of family, friends, fans and supporters, they push on and commit to keep going and growing!
