Hi! I’m Waínu. I make unique eco-friendly designs inspired by my passion for food and our journey to being green. After graduating from Parsons School Of Design in NYC with a BFA in fashion design, I went on to work for fashion brands such as Perry Ellis and Cole Haan.
In 2013, inspired by my two little Pomeranians Coala and Cawaii, I decided to start my own business based in our hometown of Gainesville, Florida.
Every item in our shop is handmade in our studio. From the initial concept to the finished product, each item’s process is completed by my hands, ensuring each product is truly one-of-a-kind and entirely unique. I also wanted our products to be eco-concious and went against conventional manufacturing. Instead, opting to house the designing, printing, and sewing all under one roof in our Florida studio. Using only eco-friendly water-based inks and through our made to order process, I strive to create a more sustainable, truly handmade product.
I hope you enjoy our designs and thanks for visiting!
