Many of the products sold in Waves of Art have been developed with the help of Michele Braun, the store buyer. With over 24 years experience in the retail business in Honduras, she utilizes her studies as a fine artist combined with a passion for developing products that are both beautiful and carry a concept of social awareness and eco-sustainability. Her success in product development has allowed her the pleasure to form many strong ties and relationships with artists, woman's cooperatives and craftsman. Together they have created Waves of Art, a store where everything on the shelves tells a story.
