Mens Wedding Accessories
At WEEF they believe that leather is timeless, especially for men’s wedding accessories. They use the medium to make bold new statements. Their products are born out of love, passion and attention to detail. They pride themselves on using responsibly sourced leather from sustainable and reputable South African suppliers. All the products are designed and assembled in-house by hand. But they are not complaining – they love what they do. WEEF currently designs and manufactures handmade skinny ties, bow ties, pocket squares and suspenders from ethically sourced bovine and ostrich leather.
In 2013 two good friends had a vision – 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 begun.
Multiple production companies were approached to create their first 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.
