DANYÉ was established in 2006 to offer unique contemporary handmade products. It starts travelling to Africa and finding artisans to collaborate with.
In 2007 DANYÉ Gallery is opened in Pamplona. The showroom is a lovely setting where DANYÉ products can be seen and purchased.

In September 2009, again at the Trade Show Maison & Objet in Paris, DANYÉ presents its cotton fabrics of great quality with naïf designs created by Sun people of South Africa.
In 2010 DANYÉ keeps growing in the European market, suggesting also its own designs while continuing to enhance its existing collections with new products.
More and more DANYÉ sells to specifiers, and thanks to that, in 2011 it is selected by Maison&Objet with the label ARCHI.DESIGNER, group of exhibitors that organisation suggests to specialised visitors like architects, consultancies, decorators and designers.
In 2012 DANYÉ continue developing its international market. It launches new collections at Maison&Objet, specially the very contemporary tables and stools made with same fiber as the traditional baskets from Southafrica and Zimbabwe. Also it presents its new floormat with cercles, very succesful among Specifiers.
DANYÉ launched in 2013 the "Memories" collection. In 2014, it launched two really creatif collections in Europe: "The Song of the Weaver" and "Desert Diaries". They become very succesful.
In 2014-2015 the collection "The Song of the Weaver" is exhibited in different places. In january 2015 a selection of few pieces of this collection are showed at the Elizabeth Leriche exhibition "Human Made". In march 2015 we visited the weavers that were the inspiration and the producer of this collection and we showed them the book "Make" related to the exhibition, where these women and the products were published. A great team work.
2016-2017 are years of consolidation and developement of new interesting products together with the artisans.
