Story Behind the Art

Haitian artisans have persevered during tumultuous times - political turmoil, earthquakes, hunger and COVID have wreaked havoc on the country.  This hasn't stopped the hum of artisan workshops across the Haiti.  The determination and resilience of the Haitians is evident through their beautiful crafts.  Whether it is metal art crafted from 55-gallon steel oil drum or papier mache, the works of art from Haiti are as beautiful as the people.   This purchase supports a small workshop and is dedicated to socially responsible sourcing principles that contribute to poverty alleviation.


Given the handmade nature of this product please allow for minor variations. The recycled paper will vary from piece to piece so the pattern and colors will differ in coloration.
