My name is Charlotte Bienen, I live in Hilversum and started Wayward Customs in 2014 in Amsterdam. WayWard Customs started for me as a combination of a school project and love for sneakers and (tattoo) art.
For my study at the time I was working on a brand concept which is how I came to the name WayWard. I started customizing sneakers because I had a pair of Timberland boots that I had used a lot and wanted to give a new look to them. The end result was posted on Instagram and that is how this journey started.
