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 by assisting 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 natural artistic talents of the Haitians are well known, and many of these hand-painted pieces are truly works of art.
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 quite satisfied with my dragonfly. It is extremely colorful and matches the image presented online. It is lightweight and comes with a hook for instant hanging. It enables the dragonfly to be hung horizontally or at an angle. I bought this piece for a small area by my kitchen sink and it fits the area beautifully. I thoroughly enjoy the splash of color it brings.
I bought the salmon colored (bright colors) and multi colored gecko for my garden wall and everybody is raving about how beautiful they are. The salmon (or coral) matches the vine over my arbor and wall and is quite attractive. Together they make an inviting entrance. And I love the fact that purchasing these products is helping Haiti in a way that is not just charitable but enabling the artists to make a living at what they love to do!
These are so cute. I own all of these. They are very cute and colorful. They are pretty small. They look cute hanging but they all hang the same direction due to the location of the hook. It is durable and will not bend easily. I like mine.
Love the design.
Would love to have a wall with a few of these funky guys on it, brightens up any room/space. I actually don't have it hanging but rather lying on a shelf of my bookshelf and I love it there too. Would also look goo on my balcony...wish I had bought more.
Have seen my song using it as a toy pretending to fly it around the room like he would a toy aeroplane.
