In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Place is proud to announce that Nordstrom has chosen to feature KAANAS for the occasion. The article, live on Nordstrom.com, does a great job outlining how integral family, heritage, women and local craftsmanship are to the brand’s identity. Cultivating a passion planted by their parents, the four Acevedo sisters founded KAANAS in 2012 after growing up around their mother’s footwear factory and their father’s shoe stores. With materials carefully sourced in South America, designing and producing artisanal footwear in Colombia has been a way for the Acevedos to express a sense of national pride and familial connection.
