(1) WHO IS WVN.jpg

Filipino weaves are at the heart of our ideas. We reimagine the use of local handwoven textiles and we try to lend a fresher treatment to it for the modern home. We currently work with a community in La Union to create and curate our products.

We chose the name WVN ("wo-ven") because symbolically it looks like woven patterns of rice crops, mountains, or even water.  

 

 (3) Towels.jpg

The funds will go directly to financing the production of our double sided towels -- weave on the outside; terry cloth on the inside. It is 100% cotton so it is absorbent, soft, and good for the skin!

(4) WVN Story.jpg

There is a tendency to underestimate the quality of our local craftsmanship because we do not understand the creative and technical process to produce this. We have come to know weaves as something “old”. WVN Home Textiles would like to change this mindset and raise awareness of the beauty of our local handloom industry through our products. 

Our advocacy is to rally people behind supporting local weaving and help communities grow their economic potential. We ultimately want to make weaving more relevant to the younger generations.

 

(2) Why crowdfund-.jpg

With the help of this crowdfunding campaign, we would like to launch our new line of summer towels. But more importantly, we hope that we can spread the word about WVN. Eventually, our goal is to be able to put direction to our creative output and innovate with the weaves.  

 

(3) Rewards (1).jpg

With your kind pledge to this cause, you will not only be supporting our products, but you yourself have become a catalyst of supporting local handicrafts. You will be receiving a masterfully handwoven towel, which you can use on your next trip to the beach, or to brighten up your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

You won’t find these anywhere else. Our towels are double sided: weaves on the outside and a fluffy terry towel fabric on the inside. The weaves are proudly handmade by women from La Union. It is made from 100% cotton, so we promise absorbency and softness.
The size of the sarong towel is 28 x 60 inches. It is thinner than the double fabric summer towel because it doesn't include a terry cloth. Think "sarong". :) The double fabric summer towel's size is 30 x 56 inches. It has a terry cloth on the inside and one of our four new designs (Navy, Nautical, Coral, Horizon) on the outside.
Kindly wait for WVN's email after your successful pledge.
We will start shipping out the rewards starting May 23. We will follow a first come, first served basis in order of backing. If needed, you will receive an email or text message to coordinate.
For local shipping, it is included with the pledge. For international shipping, we will charge an additional amount for shipping to your country.
WVN would like to raise awareness about the beautiful craftsmanship that we support. We would want to share WVN to more people, not just those in our personal networks. We would also like to raise capital to produce our new line of summer towels.
We will find alternative ways to fund the project. There may be a slight delay in delivery times but the product will be delivered as promised.
