About Boden

Boden are an omnichannel clothing retailer that makes clothes and accessories that cannot be found elsewhere. Their clothing is stylish with unique details in beautiful colours and prints, in which the whole family can look and feel fantastic in.

In 1991, Johnnie Boden sat down at his kitchen table and sketched eight pieces of menswear - his first collection. Since then their range has grown to include clothes for the whole family, with their most recent range ‘Johnnie B’ launched in 2010 for teenagers.

Boden aims to become a £1 billion brand, putting fun into style for millions of families around the world. To achieve this, the company follow their core principles: be British, charming and witty, brave, stylish and trustworthy.

These values form a core component of Boden and their culture. Founder Johnnie Boden spends a great deal of time working on the brand and the principles and behaviours that form part of it.
