Value manifesto

AESTHETIC VALUE

The aesthetic value is no longer defined only by a form. It is about humanity in the making. Material shaped by time, attention, and mastery.

EMOTIONAL VALUE

We cherish the relationship between the maker, the object, and the owner. Their stories continue in your hands. By choosing unique products you create a unique experience for yourself.

SOCIAL VALUE

At Kanava, we believe in a community. The community that uplifts the unique skills of each individual and creates a space for mutual support.

ENVIRONMENTAL VALUE

Our makers work in the utmost respect for nature. When it comes to lasting objects, we as users can participate by taking care of it. This depends on understanding the whole journey from maker to us.
