Mac Bishop founded Wool & Prince to solve a problem of his own and the problem of minimalists around the world. He wanted comfortable wool clothing that was odor and wrinkle resistant, and looked good even if weeks went by between laundry day. It all started with him proving to his coworkers at his corporate job that he could go 100 straights days wearing the same wool shirt without washing it.
His entrepreneurial pursuit kicked in and motivated him to quit the corporate job and launch his wool clothing company with an incredible Kickstarter campaign that went viral and raised over $300,000 in just 10 days.
Even though he’s now a founder of a successful company he hasn’t lost his minimalist mentality and we talk about how it has actually helped him build his company. He’s also not done proving his point about minimal living and wool clothing because he just recently went 1 full year wearing just 26 core items.
