The name ‘wasco’ is derived from the letters of the words ‘S.A.W.’ and ‘Waarschoot’.

S.A.W. is an abbreviation of ‘Societe Anonyme de Waerschoot’, the name of a former textile factory in the village of Waarschoot, Lievegem, East-Flanders, Belgium (Europe).
Wasco’s playground and workroom is a former warehouse, a part of the industrial heritage site of S.A.W.

textile factory s.a.w as seen from of the trainstation of Waarschoot - begin of 20th cent.

The village of Waarschoot is the heimat of wasco founder Julie.
Wasco is very proud of its local roots in a village with a flourishing textile production for more than 160 years (currently at bttextilia.com)
This local knowledge, anchoring and starting from a small-scale identity can have international appeal in a globalized world.

Wasco also refers to the dutch name for wax crayons. These playful and brightly colored crayons are often used by children. Drawing with this medium is very joyful and imaginative.
The childlike spontaneity and playfulness is part of wasco's design DNA.
