Artisan: Caribbean Craft

Artisan Caribbean Craft

Known for its originality and ingenious use of recycled materials, Port-au-Prince - based Caribbean Craft has cultivated an enthusiastic international following with its jubilant folk art since 1990. Founded to address Haiti's high unemployment rate, it provides artisan training, design assistance, and export outlets for over 500 artisans. Along with fair wages, the network provides health and accident insurance, a pension system, and interest-free loans when needed. By earning a living through their unique creations, talented artisans find new empowerment and hope for the future.

Haiti has long been known for its vibrant tradition of colorful, inventive folk art, and there's no better example of inspired Haitian style than Caribbean Craft's oil drum art. Recycled steel drums are molded into ornate forms celebrating local folklore, voodoo, and other mystical and religious symbolism. Other recycled resources, such as empty cement bags, are used to created festive papier-mâché items such as ornaments, piggy banks, and serving trays.

Caribbean Craft's long-term goal is to continue as a conduit for the diversity and vision inherent in Haitian design while producing ecologically sustainable products.
