Shop Tree of Life online
In early 1968 John and Wendy Borthwick set out along the hippie trail with India their goal.
Two backpacks, a pair of flimsy air mattresses, a couple of hundred dollars and a belief in luck were their only possessions. It was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with India.
Like countless hippies of the era, Wendy and John were seekers drawn to find a more meaningful existence. In the early 90s, the first Tree of Life store opened its doors in Sydney’s Balmain. The idea was to engage with free spirits, regardless of age, size, gender or religion. From the start people responded to the carefree hippie ethos of the brand.
