What is Washein?
Washein started in 2017 as a side project that provided work to local artisans, making them feel productive and able to support their children.
Little has changed since then, and with the addition of straw bags, home and winter accessories, our core mission remains the same - creating beautiful artisan-made quality products that positively impacts the maker and the buyer.
