Caribbean Craft is a woman-owned company in Haiti that has a strong commitment to social responsibility and the environment. Founded by Magalie Noel Dresse, the company supports Haitian artisans with fair wages, health and accident insurance, a pension system, and more. After the devastating earthquake of 2010 Caribbean Craft launched a successful feeding program that fed over 300 artisans for several years. The company also collaborated with World Vision to train and give paid work to 1300 refugees artisans who transformed discarded materials into simple jewelry and paper maché products. In 2011, with the help of the Clinton Foundation, Caribbean Craft started a literacy program for artisans and workers to learn to read. By 2014 the entire team could read and write, whereas only 53% of the Haitian population is literate.

Beautiful !

This item looks so pretty displayed! Definitely lighter than I thought it would be but displayed it looks very expensive.

Bowl is pretty but really does look like a craft project. Has a handmade vibe but not necessarily in a good way. The size is good though.

I absolutely love the Papier-mâché Mache Bowl. I love the detail and the organic feel to it. It is such a beautiful piece to display and I love knowing the origin of where and how it was made.
