About Our Partners:
WEND is an Oakland, California based design studio that aims to marry the traditional Indonesian craft of hand weaving with a distinctly California aesthetic. Their products are a collaboration between designers Michelle Plante and Genevieve Bandrowski, and a family of weavers in Java, Indonesia.
WEND Studio aims to offer a line of home furnishings that have the highest level of social and environmental commitment available, without ever sacrificing aesthetics. Their process is physical: from designing on paper, sourcing hand-foraged sustainable rattan, and weaving in small batches – no two chairs are exactly alike. Every product has its own story.
