Behind The Inspiration
Introducing Wasi BLACK SERIES, a collection designed in Kansas City by one of our Co-Founders, Raul. Truly inspired by the connection to his Ecuadorian roots, his love for simplicity and monochrome brings to you a unique collection that will make you feel at home.
Experience Cultural Connection
While Ecuador's official language is Spanish, Quichua is spoken by the Quichua people group located in the valleys, as well as in the páramo (highland) regions, between the upper forest line and the permanent snow line, of the majestic Andes Mountains. The inspiration behind the name "Wasi" (a Quichua word for "home") came from the Quichua peoples native tongue Quichua. Each of the Wasi's monochromatic designs (Destino, Paramo, Nevado, and Diamante) were given their names from Raul's native tongue, Spanish.
There is a meaning behind each thread.
Spanish for "Destination," our Destino blanket's arrow design was inspired to represent the human desire to find freedom.
Spanish for "Snow-capped volcano," inspired to capture the complexity and beauty of the Andes mountains of Ecuador, versatile and elevated.
Spanish for "Highlands," designed to resemble the wind blowing through the Ecuadorian Páramo, settled and beautiful.
Spanish for "Diamond," inspired to represent the value of empowerment and cultural diversity.
Representing the mystery of the Ecuadorian Andes and the passion for cultural connection, Wasi Collection was created for simplicity and versatility.
Touch. Feel. Experience.
