Working Lives Havana: Idania del Rio

Idania del Rio is part of a new wave in Cuba, an independent entrepreneur. An established artist, her idea was simple but incredibly effective: selling T-shirts, handbags, posters and more with a unique slant on modern Cuban life.

Many of the clothes and cushion covers carry their line's increasingly recognisable slogans: "Actually I'm in Havana" and "99% diseño cubano" (99% Cuban design).

Clandestina may be a small shop but they have big dreams. They're already in talks with a business partner in New York about selling their products outside the island.
