HANDMADE PRODUCTS WHERE EVERY ITEM SOLD SUPPORTS LOCAL ARTISANS ACROSS SOUTH AMERICA, CENTRAL AMERICA & AFRICA

KAANAS is a family owned business making high quality and socially responsible products. They marry playful, feminine designs with classic silhouettes. They design shoes that they would wear, and pride themselves on their amazing craftsmanship.

The team is made up of four sisters and second-generation shoe makers who grew up together running around their mother's shoe factory, helping their father in his shoe store & attending trade shows.

After witnessing the closing of many factories due to the cheaper, lower quality product becoming more readily available - this family founded KAANAS in 2013 as a solution to this issue. Today, the entire family is involved in every aspect of the business - from designing to customer service.

Each KAANAS item sold supports the communities they work with. They partner with local artisans across South America, Central America and Africa. These collaborations help artists build their designs and enhance their production capabilities, whilst ensuring fair compensation.
