At WEEF we believe that leather is timeless. We use the medium to make bold new statements. Our products are born out of love, passion and attention to detail.
We pride ourselves on using responsibly sourced leather from sustainable and reputa- ble South African suppliers. All our products are designed and assembled in-house by hand. But we’re not complaining – we love what we do.
In 2013 two good friends had a vision – and WEEF was born.
It’s founders, Dévan and Patrick, met while working at a design studio in Cape Town. They shared a deep love and appreciation for South African arts and crafts. Inspired by the drive and culture of the country, they set out to develop their very own lifestyle brand. The WEEF journey had be- gan. Multiple production companies were approached to create their rst designs, with varying degrees of success. After much hard work and deliberation, they took the bold leap of investing in their own equipment and team.
Since then, they’ve had the creative freedom to turn their wildest ideas into actual products. In turn they have also provided meaningful work and income for local makers and suppliers.
The WEEF story has been a brave and bold one; of taking chances, working hard, persevering, and sticking to your principles – the way of a true gentleman.
For Dévan and Patrick, establishing their own business and doing what they love and believe in has been a dream come true, and a path to self-actualisation. Now they want to share that dream with the world and empower others to do the same.
DRESS WELL, DO GOODD, AND LET THE UNIVERSE DO THE REST. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY.
WE ARE WEEF.
