Named after the katabatic winds in the Strait of Magellan, Willywaw symbolizes earth, water, and sky - a triskele connecting all living things.

Willywaw was founded by Ashley Van Etten and combines her curiosity for the natural world with her love of art. She believes beautiful, well-made, and functional designs enrich life by connecting us to nature.

Ashley is an illustrator with a background in clothing design. She lives in Rhode Island with her husband/photographer/ship builder, Joe Beckham, and their two dogs, Juneau and Takhoma.
