Arnold Haas founded Wubet in Ethiopia with the vision of merging modern design with local weaving tradition. Translating to "beauty" in the Ethiopian Amharic language, the label's hand-woven shawls gained recognition with fashionistas on both sides of the Atlantic, leading Haas to open his flagship store in March of 2010 in Praterstrasse, an up-and-coming neighborhood and creative incubator. Having since relocated to Santiago, Chile, Haas expanded Wubet's collection to include contemporary renditions of Alpaca blankets and throws inspired by age-old Andean weaving. Collaborating closely with his weavers in both Ethiopia and Peru, Haas is dedicated to providing good working conditions for the local artisans. A cosmopolitan store with a distinct international flair, Wubet celebrates craftsmanship and culture with the opportunity to bring a piece of ethnic tradition to your home.Show lessRead more
