OUR WILD STORY
Hi adventurer! We are Zac and Ine, life and business partners in crime. We met three years ago in our tri-continental Master's Program, eager to study and explore the world. After a crazy journey through Canada, the Netherlands, and Peru, we realized how travel experiences shaped our lives positively. We broadened our horizons by discovering new cultures and landscapes. Most importantly, we learned that travel brings together people from all around the world, forming connections we never thought was possible. This trip was LIFE-CHANGING. We want everyone to be able to experience that. We want to inspire everyone to travel and explore our beautiful world! With that idea in mind, World Wild Hearts was born...
"To inspire life-changing travel experiences"
Our mission remains the same today. We live this purpose by providing a one-stop destination for travel inspiration. We make products and tell stories that inspire everyone to travel and become the best version of their selves. We want everyone to create lifelong memories by getting out of their comfort zone and exploring the world.
Our vision is to make travel accessible to all. we believe that everyone with the desire should be able to experience the beauty of the world in which we live. That is why we donate 10% of our profits to FLYTE.
"Have you ever felt inspired after experiencing a new destination, culture, or landscape? That wave of emotion that engulfed your entire spirit. It made you see the world differently. This is deeper than any job or classroom could’ve taught you. It is life-changing."
Our apparel captures that feeling. It is made for travel lovers who have had life-changing travel experiences as well as aspiring travelers who want to create their own journey. By wearing our apparel, you show support for our mission and vision. You inspire others and help contribute to the #TravelforAll movement.
All our designs are homemade and we take pride in sourcing our entire line and fabrics from ethical brands and suppliers that comply with labor, environmental, and safety standards. We care about the world, just like you.
Our style combines minimalism with travel inspiration quotes, taglines, words, and landscapes that call to your imagination.

Become part of a community of world travelers and adventurers.
We imagine a world where freedom is the norm and 9-5 is obsolete. We like to break apart from the pack and be our own best selves. We love life and want to make the best out of every day.
We think differently. Some call us dreamers, we call ourselves believers. We believe in finding yourself when you get lost. In the woods, in a new city, on the road. It’s what we do in these moments that defines us. It defines our life.
We live to explore!
