Almudena Espinosa was born in Spain. Daughter of a Spanish father and a Colombian mother, she grew up in a house with Colombian principles and values. 
During her child hood, on her trips to Colombia, she fell deeply in love with its people, its passion, its humanity and culture. In Colombia we always find a world of initiatives where everything is possible, you see the good things first and where you have to reinvent your self every day to get the best out of yourself. 
Since she was little, Almudena felt the need to defend the causes of those most in need, which led her to study law and business. During her career she started for the first time founding, together with her sister Ana, “Caña de Azúcar”, a company specialized in Colombian home decoration accessories and which is currently the Guanabana Home department.
After finishing her studies, she lived for a year in Colombia where she worked in the stock market. Back in Spain, she was employed as a lawyer, but finally decided to dedicate her self entirely to her entrepreneurial branch.
In 2005 she founded Guanabana, passionate about Peruvian and Colombian crafts and encouraged by her friends, who have always fed her concerns and have been a great support in the development and criteria of the brand.

Since then, they have developed unique and timeless designs, with the intention of making quality and durable products that go beyond one season. Production happens mainly in Colombia and Spain working with more than 1200 artisans with traditional techniques inherited from our ancestors. Along our way, we have always collaborated socially with the communities we work with, making sure to give them a stable, safe job that they can trust.
