The story of Sweet Banana began in 2018. Vânia, designer, recently returned to Portugal after spending more than twenty years in France reconnects with her childhood seeing all the surfers and skateboarders on the Portuguese coast.
This is how the inspiration to create designs for board sports never left her and she decided to create a brand. But for that she needed a little help so when she saw the StartUp Voucher competition she decided to participate. To her great joy, Sweet Banana was selected and benefited from a grant to grow and become one of the winning projects of the competition at the end of 2019.
From the start, the desire to create a sustainable and ethical brand was omnipresent in order to create value with a positive environmental and social impact. It is therefore natural that we chose Ericeira, world surf reserve, to settle down. It was long, but today we are proud to have taken up this challenge and to offer you our creative and sustainable models.
