Our Team

Cannavallé was founded by three female entrepreneurs who are in tune with popular culture and deeply connected to music, sports, entertainment, and art industries. The founders live in the luxury world of celebrity and influence and want to connect luxe culture with the ancient smoking rituals and traditions shared by all people for millennia. Cannavallé celebrates, credits, and honors the indigenous peoples of the world from which all modern smoking culture has stemmed. Cannavallé brings together a multidisciplinary team of artists, designers, influencers and aficionados to collaborate on creating the world’s best products to elevate smoking experiences, stir the imagination, and inspire future success
