Story Behind Fair Trade Products | WanaBana Design

Wana Bana was born out of the need to have social impact in developing countries. I began with Latin America because it is my homeplace.

I have had the fortune to live in different countries in Latin America since I was a child.  When I was young, I learned about other cultures, which opened my mind and heart. I felt the chaos, the warmth of the people, and the passion for life; I also witnessed the violence of the drug cartels & guerrillas, the poverty and the gap between classes.

Wana Bana wants to give back to this beautiful area what I received during those years:

-   A space for young Latin designers to expose their beautiful products in Europe. These designers must design high quality products with respect for the planet and the people
-   To help develop the local economy with the creation of a new market
-   Further develop the designers to be able to produce more effectively and allow them to further improve the labour conditions of their employees and reduce their environmental impact
-   Support the designers to be able to get their certification from World Fair Trade Organisation
-   Create a cultural exchange for designers by creating training opportunities in Europe
-   Have further social impact as part of profits will go yearly to a different children's educational program

The products you can find here are unique, exclusive, hand-made, and authentic. They express honesty and creativity with a story attached.

Wana Bana is for people that want to contribute to the continuity of this planet by making mindful choices: buying great design with respect for the environment and the people. For those who enjoy life, a good home atmosphere, clever ideas and want to feel unique. For those who are always looking for a new experience, just like me!

I wish you a great shopping experience and please let me know what you think about it!


Always yours,
