Haitian Colorful Cat Magnets - Set of 3
At the GreaterGood Network, we have worked for years with artisan families in Haiti. In the wake of this devastating earthquake, we extend our hope and sympathy to these families. We hope you will help us do even more to aid their recovery. Every purchase of a fair-trade item from Haiti donates extra to help Haitian artisans affected by the earthquake.
Thank you for building hope and helping to heal Haiti.
Let vibrant art rest easy on your fridge, desk, or any other magnetic surface with kitties captured in a kaleidoscope of Caribbean-inspired color.
To create these magnets, old steel drums are burned to remove their coating, sliced open, and flattened. The artists then sketch designs on them, and sculptors cut the desired shape and create depth by embossing areas with rounded hammer ends. A non-toxic, rust-preventative primer is applied, artisans paint on designs, then the final product is varnished.
These crafts are created by 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.
