a.k.a. Western International Trading Company
William Westenhaver is a tiki carver and furniture builder from the Pacific Northwest who was particularly active in the 1960s and 1970s. His designs were sold through his company, Witco (Western International Trading Company), which started in 1958 as an importer and exporter of art and mosaics before Westenhaver's carvings caught hold with the public and the company's focus shifted exclusively to making his artwork. In the late 1990’s, Westenhaver taught all his techniques to his granddaughter Heather’s husband, Ken Pleasant. Ken has continued carving in the 20 years since, and he and Heather still own the Witco trademark and its copyrighted designs. They sell the Witco designs at their shop, Pleasant Tiki.
