Haitian Folk Art Mermaid Ornament

Item # 45843
No longer available

Every purchase of a fair-trade item from Haiti generates an extra donation to help Haitian artisans affected by the 2010 earthquake.


Handmade from recycled steel oil drums in Haiti, our mermaid bestows the magical spirit of the islands on your home.

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.

  • Recycled steel
  • 2.25" dia. (5.7 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Haiti
