Adventure, travel and exploration have always been a very important part of my life. Growing up in North Wales gave me a great appreciation for nature, hikes, and all things outdoors. My life and upbringing here laid the foundation for the journey I was soon to embark on…
In the years leading up to 2015, I worked a 9-5 job, had a growing savings account, and was on the ‘right path’. However, when my friends were saving to buy houses, I was saving to buy plane tickets. I quickly realized the path I was on would not bring me happiness and give me a passion-filled life. The next year included multiple trips to Asia and a trip to America- with more growth and adventure than I could have possibly imagined. When I arrived back in North Wales, I knew my journey overseas was not yet over.
In 2016 I began the biggest adventure of my life when I decided to uproot my life from North Wales to the West Coast of Canada. In the hopes of continued learning, self-discovery and adventure, I took my backpack and my savings and settled into Vancouver, Canada.
I ended up staying in Vancouver, British Columbia for over two and a half years. The mountains, ocean and city life further inspired me to dive head first into my interests and passions. Fitness and health have always been an important part of my life, and living a lifestyle where I felt represented in an authentic way soon became my number one goal.
I sought out to create a lifestyle brand for the adventurous heart who appreciate simplistic, high quality design and style. Antur is a labour of love that I feel very proud to have taken from Canada to the UK, where it continues to grow and be an outlet for like-minded spirits in their journey of an adventurous life.
All of this – everything we’ve done and continue to reach for – wouldn’t be possible without you.
As a growing company we’re excited for the road ahead and hope that our paths cross with yours somewhere out there.
May you continue to adventure,
