Baxter Wood Company is a contemporary waterproof footwear and garment brand that thrives on continuous ideation, creative color blends, and a mission to literally change lives. Designed for the unconventional ones who play in the rain and the non-conformists who believe garments can transcend clothing, each purchase from Baxter Wood Company funds an extra week of education for children needing an education.
Like many who immigrate to the U.S., founder and owner Kweku Larbi left his native Ghana, Africa, in the pursuit of a better education. Now, he’s using his company’s success to further the needs of children back home who have been denied an education. He is the epitome of giving back and paying it forward.
Larbi has partnered with 1% for Education, a non-profit organization building sustainable education programs in developing countries. Together, they’re opening up their first partnership early education school in Spring 2021, a school that will be attended by 98 children.
The brand’s gender-neutral vegan yellow trawler raincoat was included in New York Magazine’s “The Strategist” section featuring black-owned businesses and gifts for every type of person (in this case the cousin who just moved to Seattle!). The Scandinavian-style waterproof raincoat is made from 32 recycled plastic bottles with rubberized polyester. It comes unlined with snap closures and stress-tested double-welded seams. It’s available in eight vibrant colors.
Imagine wearing raincoats and boots in colorful styles while helping to make a difference in today’s world. Through timeless garments, the brand is lifting children out of poverty and giving them a chance to succeed in life. At Baxter Wood Company, they’re indeed changing the world, one garment at a time.
