Story Behind the Art:
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 organization has gone through rough times during the past years, marked by political troubles and economic difficulties including a three-year-long embargo on all Haitian exports. Caribbean Craft currently employs 400 artisans either as salaried employees or outside contractors, with roughly equal numbers of men and women. 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.

Delivered ahead of schedule and I love it! Unique and gorgeous!Read More
looks way better in photo than it does in person. This thing doesn't even have anything on the back from which to hang it on the wall. It really looks cheap.Read More
I hung this piece over an ugly outdoor vent. You can't see the actual peacock design from very far away but it still looks much nicer than the vent did. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it really is OK for outdoor use as advertised and won't rust. It didn't come with a hanger so I threaded an inconspicuous wire through the cut-outs. It's nice to think I helped an artist in Haiti with the purchase.Read More
