When it comes to holiday decorating, break out of the ordinary with unmistakable style and bold color! Handmade with sheet metal painted in vibrant tones, these durable ornaments represent a dynamic connection with the divine.
Veve are symbols believed by certain groups, primarily in Haiti, but also ranging from Africa to South and Central America, to represent higher spirits. Similar in many ways to saints and angels, these spirits act as intermediaries that allow divine forces to communicate with humankind.
These ornaments are created by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs. The company works to promote employment in Haiti by teaching unskilled workers trades. They also help independent artists find new markets. The company currently employs about 400 people, half men and half women.
Ornaments measure approximately 3.5" L(8.9 cm) and hang from a length of ribbon. Handmade in and fairly traded from Haiti.
