August 1, 2013 - Love my bracelet! Made by women using what they can find - which is impressive. I put mine around a candle. Dresses up the candle and looks great! I'm very saddened by the other reviews. Seems like some customers have forgotten the whole point here. Every purchase helps!
February 6, 2013 - Very poor quality. I got the item and was so disappointed. I will not wear it even once.
January 26, 2013 - not at all what I was expecting. Was looking forward to a fun eclectic piece but instead got something very poorly put together with unattractive colors that dont mesh, that overall looks as if a small child tried to make it. Very disappointed and since I wont wear it will end up at my next garage sale.
November 21, 2012 - Really below par for the quality I usually get from fair trade items. I definitely do not recommend this item
November 14, 2012 - Unfortunately, the one I got fell apart right away - the paper all peeled off :(
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.
