Company Overview

WE'VE is transforming the relationships between buyers, artisans and designers. The mission is to build and grow transparent supply chains. WE'VE is a global online collective of curated skilled artisans and their collaborately-designed accessories and home goods.

In 12 months, we have 78 maker groups with over 4,000 products already collaboratively designed exclusively and increasing these ongoing. With a very successful holiday pop up in San Francisco (Westfield Mall), we will roll our popups Q3 and Q4 of 2015. We have partnered with a technology company for our ecommerce as well as have offline partnerships for our launch of our pop ups. With our new "responsive design" ecommerce site, the collaborate section will launch Q3 2015 with design partners for our crowdfunding design competitions.
