Gandys was founded by brothers Rob & Paul, who came from a bohemian upbringing - travelling and volunteering all over the World. Driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the 2004 boxing day Tsunami - Rob & Paul developed Gandys with the vision to fund their charitable foundation; 'Orphans for Orphans’ which enabled them most recently to build a children’s home in memory of their parents. The brothers live by a simple philosophy, which is strongly reflected in the brand, Designed in London, Inspired by Travel, Fuelled by giving back. Gandys began in 2012 in the Brothers bedroom in Brixton as a social enterprise selling only flip flops, in recent years Gandys has grown into a full lifestyle brand with stores opening all over the UK, running in conjunction with its online and wholesale channels.
