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.

Our Pumpkin Box is made of grey soapstone and was hand carved by our Haitian Artisans. The stone is soaked in water to make it easier to handle. It then is hammered, chiseled and filed to get the right lines. This process could take hours depending on the piece they are creating. They then sand and buff to get the soft luster on the pieces.
