Our Story


Hello, welcome to our first blog post!

We are Chris and Phoebe; high school sweet hearts who grew up together, got married and became parents to our two beautiful children, Haines & Vallis. We are just your every day Aussie family on a mission to make life that little bit easier!

Chris is an avid freediver, spearfisherman and bowhunter. Phoebe is into mountains, hiking and the outdoors in general. These hobbies have lead us on some crazy adventures travelling all over the world and more recently, our home country - Australia. In 2019 we sold everything we owned and entered the minimalistic life on the road, travelling full time in our caravan - forever exploring.

Will & Wind came about from our constant travelling life; the suitcases, planes, boats, swags and now van life. The decision for which items were packed always came down to 'weight' and how much 'space' they would take up. We were sick of lugging around bulky towels, bringing sand home and having to pack damp towels into our suitcases when they hadn't completely dried. 

And so became our Quick Dry Microfibre Travel Towels.

We set out on a mission to make these essential everyday items EASY to travel with, sustainable, practical and purposeful.
After many late nights, months and months of researching, sampling, testing, failing, getting back up and doing it all again, we finally found our gem - the one who ticks all the boxes!

Sustainably made using recycled materials
Light Weight - less than 300g
Quick Dry - 4x faster than a regular towel
Compact - full size towel fits in the palm of your hand
Absorbent - holds 7x their own weight in water
Sand Free - repels sand and loose dirt
Anti Microbial - no odours

Eco Friendly Will and Wind Travel Beach Towels made from recycled materials

To make it even cooler, we combined our hobbies with our passions -
Travel & Photography
with each original Will & Wind design being a photograph we have taken on our travels. A story within each design, a practical souvenir.

'Inspired by nature, Driven by adventure'

We are so humbled by the support of our community surrounding us.
We have big plans and we'd love for you to come along on this journey with us!
