Story Behind the Art: Founded in 1990 by a multinational group of young entrepreneurs, Caribbean Craft promotes employment in Haiti by training unskilled - but often highly gifted - craftspeople, and assists the independent artisans through the introduction of new designs and new market outlets. Unemployment in Haiti, the poorest country of the American hemisphere, is variously estimated at between 60 and 80-percent.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I am getting ready for spring and summer! I purchased these painted geckos as decorations for the white painted garage. They will go on either side of the garage that is in my back yard and overlooks my garden. I think they will give great splash of color and bring a caribean look to my back yard. My husband thinks I paid too much, buy I loved the idea that it was made out of recycled tin drums, the vivid colors attracted me and I would like to help the people who painstakingly made them. I will push my friends to purchase as well!
These little guys are adorable!!! I have most of them. This one is especially pretty. The colors are over the top. He will look so good on your patio or garden. Keep in mind he is small. They are all small but you will not be disappointed.
