Haitian Recycled Steel Live Love Laugh Ornaments - Set of 3

Item # 44026
In Stock

Transcending borders, cultures, and holiday celebrations, this trio brings life, love, and laughter to your home on wings of angels. Loving attention to detail is imbued in every strike of hammer and chisel.

In Haiti, where recycled steel oil drums are a valuable source of metal, the artisans of Croix des Bouquets fashion amazing works of metal art that leave no carbon footprint. 55-gallon drums dumped there have been turned into art supplies by the residents since in the 1950s. They're cut and purified with straw fires that burn out the residue. Once cleaned, the artisans use hammer and chisel to work them by hand, as the lack of electricity during the day makes power tools impossible. The result is greenest of green arts and the chicest of the eco-chic ...and a keepsake entirely unique.

Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.

  • Reads "Live," "Love," "Laugh"
  • Made entirely from recycled steel

January 5, 2014 - These ornaments are very well made and a good size to hang anywhere for inspiration. My grandsons, aged 10 to 18, really appreciated them as gifts and the family was impressed that they were made by Haitian artisans.
