CANELA is a sustainable, ethical and social conscious brand, that uses recycled plastic thread to create an elegant and practical range of bags.
Each bag is hand woven by talented artisans from neglected areas of society, giving these skilled crafts men and women a new chance of expression and employment and showcasing a unique combination of fresh and ethnic feelings for the rest of the world to enjoy.
CANELA comes from the tropical city of Panama, where fashion designer Ana Laura Garcia was inspired by nature to create a practical, elegant and most importantly ethically sourced beach bag for the global man or woman. After studying for a Master in Fashion and Luxury Brand Management at the Istituto Marangoni in London, Ana worked for Puig, Nina Ricci, Prada, Carolina Herrera and Asvat – a multi brand company housing Ermenegildo Zegna, Tiffany and Co, Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Etro and Paul Smith.
CANELA focuses on simple and timeless designs, the range – which includes java, picnic and totes – is affordable, washable and durable, ready for robust use with kids or on a daily basis and perfect for the beach.
Each bag is a perfectly imperfect handmade creation, that makes the owner look and feel amazing.
“Canela is a trusted supplier and partner. We are proud of the record of shared success that we have achieved and we are looking forward to continuing to sell their products to more and more stores.”
“SSAW has helped us to develop our international sales and so far we have had wholesale orders from as far away as Bahrain in the Middle East. Our joint focus is now to develop the Australian market, which would not be a realistic option for us without SSAW. They have always been very professional and responsive, and shown considerable determination. When something doesn’t work they dig deeper, and we are very pleased with the success we are achieving from partnering with SSAW.”
CANELA’s collection of practical and sustainable bags is available for wholesale order exclusively through SSAW.io
