WUBET is a collection of textiles that tell the story of Arnold Haas' interesting and diverse journeys...
Born in Austria, Arnold has lived in the United States, Ethiopia and in Santiago de Chile. The collection highlights just this "je ne sais quoi" of a globetrotter with an acute eye and a passion for the handmade, the exquisite and the authentic, always with a modern touch and sense of color that can only be explained as "very Wubet".
For Arnold, the key is to take traditional techniques outside of the ethnic box to give them a chance as high end designed pieces for a modern world. The production is entirely made in Chile, Peru & Ethiopia, and each component is worked by hand.
