Founded in 2011, Ananasa.com started when two sisters wanted to expose the hidden beauty of the Middle East to the world. Ananasa takes away the headaches of logistics, customer service & marketing so artisans can focus on creating their handmade items and individuals worldwide can buy unique items from the Middle East easily.
And that is why it's called Ananasa (اناناسة):
Ana: means "I" in Arabic
Nas: means "the people" in Arabic
A: adding an a at the end allows the word to become feminine, just like the co-founders.
" for the people, by the people"
