Incorporating retail and wholesale, our website reflects the new Samana Living branding.
“Our wholesale customers are mostly all very long-standing. We have fantastic relationships with them and they know and love our brands. Offering them a more streamlined ordering system is important, because the demands on business owners are only getting more complicated, and we don’t want to add to the stress!” comments Bernadette. “Via newsletters, an increased social media presence, and our new website, we’re upping our game.”
“We've launched the retail side of our business, reaching more people, so we can do more to help.”
We're passionate about;
- Ethical manufacturing
- Fair Trade practices
- Using organic materials
- Doing good - not just be a for-profit business
- Growing as a Social Enterprise
“Social enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. Like traditional businesses, they aim to make a profit but it's what they do with their profits that sets them apart – reinvesting or donating them to create positive social change.”
“The Fair Trade brands we work with have one thing in common, they aim to keep communities together, empower women to earn a meaningful income and contribute to their villages, and offer flexibility in their workplace. This means so much to us.”
Samana is a word meaning "equal" in Bangla.
Samana Living means we can share the products that were created with love with you all, and in turn, each one of us contributes to a better standard of life for all. With every purchase we make, we’re casting a vote for the kind of world we want to live in. As consumers, we all have the power to demand more from brands, by supporting the ones who are making a difference. Thanks for continuing to support Samana Living.
