"We began creating beard products when Jacob was unsatisfied with the option of beard products in our city. Some barbershops had them but were ridiculously overpriced and could not find scents that Jacob found stimulating. He began doing some research and playing around with some concoctions, like a mad scientist trying to find the antidote for Dr. Jekel and Mr. Hide. It took a long time to develop the scents and a wax and balm that would withstand the elements. Then one day, Jacob emerged from the darkness of the drab kitchen with the beard and moustache wax, balm and oil that we present you today. We are so pleased to introduce you to our products. Do you live your life by the seat of your pants? Are you always up for adventure and mystery? You may just be a Bearded Nomad. Life is wild, but your beard doesn't have to be. Our products help tame your man-mane so your lady won't complain!"
How did you get into your art/craft?
Well we have always been a creative people, we started out making reclaimed furniture out of pallets. After working in that a bit we noticed a trend taking off...BEARDS! from there we began doing research and developing a brand that people can stand behind, since then Bearded Nomad has taken off and we haven't looked back since.
What do you like to listen to while you’re working?
Its always different to be honest, we usually throw on Spotify. Some favorite playlists are: essential indie, good times great oldies, psychedelic rock and 70's smash hits, to name a few.
Outside of your medium, what other types of art/design/etc are you inspired by?
Jacob loves anything made out of wood but loves reclaimed furniture made from barn board, live edge wood and reclaimed pallets. Chris is a knit and Crochet-aholic and loves anything to do with yarn.
If you couldn’t be an artist/craftsperson, what would you love to be?
Jacob would love to be a historian. If Christine had it her way she'd be traveling the world as an archaeologist.
