A Journey from Dreams to Reality

Two decades ago, our passion for literature and unique finds planted the seed for what would become Branches. It started with a love for the classics, an affection for the bizarre, and a desire to bring a little more laughter and joy into the world. From our long-standing vampire obsession to our current zombie craze, our journey has been anything but ordinary.
