Wood has been developed on the underground over the last 10 years since its inception in 2004.
Born in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter on Oldham St., formerly home to the infamous Factory Records, Wood is one of the jewels of the NQ crown. Since opening its doors to the Republic of Mancunia over 10 years ago it can now also be found with its second store in Huddersfield as well as online, with some extra special exclusives only available at www.ashopcalledwood.com.
Wood’s distinctive take on clothing see’s it stock a unique set of brands such as Filling Pieces, 10 Deep, Asics, Rains, Penfield, Saucony and Champion to name but a few.
Wood has always been about championing original and directional clothing and accessories and in turn has some extra special working relationships with people in game, folk such as Kai & Sunny of Call of the Wild fame.
Not only has Call of the Wild been stocked in the store since it opened but Kai & Sunny are part of the family at Wood and have lent a hand with design of the store and online store.
From its humble beginnings 10 years ago as a reaction to over saturated menswear stores, all clones of each other with little imagination, Wood aims to bring a sense of originality and inimitability back and has grown into the tastemaker it is today. With its 2 stores and online store, the next step for A Shop Called Wood is simple, the launch of its very own clothing line Cyrus Wood.
