At WEHVE, our mission is two-fold: first, to preserve the profound knowledge passed down through ancestral traditions of weaving, and second, to share and enjoy these skills in timeless pieces produced as sustainably and ethically as possible.
We make hand-loomed blankets, wraps, and shawls in Merino wool from pasture-roaming sheep. We combine the Merino wool with silk, cotton, and linen. The pieces feature bright colours, fringe and leather trims, and graphical geometric patterns.
WEHVE collections are built with a technical eye. Founder Gesine Holschuh serves on the board of Fairtrade Belgium and holds an MBA from INSEAD. She has worked at the intersection of social impact and business for 10 years, with a focus on women's empowerment.
WEHVE was founded in Jose Ignacio, Uruguay in 2014. Gesine's daughter Lilian has served as the face of the brand since 2018.
