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 (like this paper mache bowl ). 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 was literate.

Paper Mache Bowl

I love it! It large but lightweight. The white color means in works in most of my rooms. Thanks for sourcing such a unique piece!

As amazing as expected

I was on the fence about getting the medium or the large version of this bowl. Ultimately I went for the medium and it was the right choice. In my option the medium is HUGE (in a good way) so I can only imagine how big the large is. Dimensions can only guide you so far, you really need product in hand to truly get its depth. Anyway, I love everything about this bowl. Worth the wait for me.

Nice, but dare I say ... boring?

I really like this paper mache bowl. My only problem with it is that it doesn't really have that unique type feel in person that it does in photos online. It's a tad too standard in appearance with mostly straight edges and not quite enough individuality compared to some other paper mache bowls I've seen since purchasing this one. It still looks pretty, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
