We have always been passionate about home and adventure.
Two words which may seem like opposites, but really are the perfect pair.
In 2015, we went on an adventure that shaped us, challenged us, and inspired the name for this shop.
Through that adventure we realized the significance of home, wherever that may be.
We looked for something to honor our hometown in a way that was modern, minimal & aesthetically pleasing, but couldn’t find anything (not even a cheesy postcard).
So in 2019, as a passion project, we created a digitally hand drawn map of our hometown. We wanted the map for ourselves, and hoped that others in our community would also like the idea.
After we shared this first map on Instagram, we started getting requests for different locations.
Our business was strictly service oriented, and we never thought we would be drawing, packaging and shipping 100s of maps in the years to come.
This passion project has turned into so much more, and we can’t thank our online community enough for supporting us as we have navigated through learning all the things.
In 2015, we lived in Germany while attending Bodenseehof Bible school. The school was right on the “Bodensee” and we spent many hours walking, talking and dreaming there. We accredit our time abroad to the start of our creative business ventures, and it felt only fitting that we include a place of adventure for the shop name. In January 2021, Bode Goods was launched as a division of Levi and Victoria Creative (formerly known as Wilder Heart Co).
