About WeBe Bags
WeBe Bags is a fun and new accessories company. Born on the sandy beaches of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, all WeBe Bags share a heritage that is rooted in colorful durability and native ingenuity.
The first WeBe Bags were inspired by watching Rastafarian Ladies, sitting under coconut trees, stitching sail straps onto tough flour sacks. Colorful pre-used sacks were transposed into classic market bags. Then and there came an inspiration to start a business - and WeBe Bags ("We be bags, mon!") was born.
WeBe Bags produces exciting, predominantly eco-friendly accessories. WeBe's first line, H'Oat Couture, is recycled from agricultural sacks. The accessories are at once classic and whimsical.
The design team endeavors to utilize reused and re-usable products in as many ways as practicable. Therefore WeBe Bags sends a dual message for the consumer: "I care about the environment... and style!"
WeBe Bags was formed in 2005 and has been expanding its product ever since. Rolled out to the press at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, WeBe has enjoyed exponential growth since first attending Trade Fairs in January 2008. Moreover, re-orders are strong. The bags are sold in boutiques throughout the Caribbean, Canada, Dubai, England, Japan and the United States.
The husband and wife design team of Tara and Angus Beavers share a passion to create an extraordinary accessories business that profits by providing benefits to Third World Suppliers, American Stay at Home Moms, as well as to both Retail Partners and WeBe End-users. In general, the WeBe Brand sends a socially responsible and eco-conscious message.
Both Founders segue from successful careers in other creative industries. Angus Beavers (University Of Pennsylvania, BA) was formerly the creator and owner of several nightclubs in New York City and Los Angeles: The Surf Club, Renaissance Supperclub, The Savoy, and The Zulu Lounge.
Tara McCann-Beavers (Stanford, BA) was a Writer and Film Producer with the iconic Roger Corman (LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, GRAND THEFT AUTO, CARNOSAUR.) Her Credits there include HELLFIRE, the first ever Russian-American Co-production. Tara went on to become Mr. Corman's VP of International Production before she joined legendary Director Francis Ford Coppola (GODFATHER, APOCALYPSE NOW). Tara ultimately became Mr. Coppola's Producing Partner as well as the Head of Television for American Zoetrope.
They now live in Park City, Utah - home to the greatest snow on earth. Both are certified Bagpeople!
Through WeBe Bags, we hope to introduce AGRI-COOL fashion to the sophisticated masses - and open the barn door to a whole new world of fashion!
Because... Some People Just Get It!
