Reviews

Spanish company Guanabana supports women artisans in Columbia. The founder, Almudena Espinosa, grew up with a Columbian mother and was drawn to the country’s culture and people from an early age. She also discovered traditional crafts during her childhood visits, and in 2005, Guanabana was born.

Each design is the product of traditions passed down through generations and kept alive by artisan communities. Guanabana works closely with over 600 craftspeople, most of them women, providing legal, regulated, stable and quality work in areas with scarce resources.

Low-impact materials are used where possible, including sustainably sourced iraca straw fibres, also known as toquilla, which are intricately woven by hand to form unique homeware pieces.
