Wolvis was founded in 2013 by architect Griet Depoorter. All scarves are produced by a little family company in West-Flanders, near the design studio in Ghent.
Wool is a renewable product. Wool for Wolvis is sheared in Australia and the Himalayas. The Oeko-Tex certificate guarantees the absence of harmful substances in the production of the wool. Wolvis carefully monitors the market’s demand producing limited editions and holding a small stock to match. Not a single wolvis will be wasted.
Every year there is one main collection that transforms with the season. The warm autumn/winter collection evolves into a spring series with lightweight fabrics and vivid colours.
The winter collection ’18 is inspired by Hilla and Bernd Becher’s photography. Central to this collection is the unexplored beauty of geometrical patterns, brick arrangements and repetitive compositions of industrial facades.
Bernd&Hilla consists of two series: one series is made in a delicate merino jacquard, while the other series has been crafted in a richer jacquard, in a blend of merino wool and cashmere. The more refined scarves are an exquisite accessory, the heavier scarves feel as comfortable as a blanket.
