Comite Artisanal Haitien Artisan Story
Haiti

  CAH-artisan_2

Comite Artisanal Haitien (CAH) was founded in 1973 to support rural craft persons from Haiti. CAH gives local artisans the ability to sell their crafts in the local markets in Port-au-Prince. The aim of the organization is to build a sale outlet for artisanal communities and help reduce the flow of migrating youth from these communities into the city as wage workers.

Each of these egg-shapped boxes are hand-carved from white soap-stone (river stones) in the Leogane and Gressier regions of Haiti. These were also the areas worst affected by the earthquake of 2010. A devesating earthquake that killed an estimated 250,000 people and displaced more than 1.5 million. Although that was many years ago, many are still struggling to recover from the affects.

Available in two sizes, each purchase of these beautiful stone sculptures will help artisans rebuild their lives.
