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 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.

I was looking for a little color for my basic black, white and gray kitchen. These magnets were perfect. The colors are very vivid and add the pop of color that I needed. I kept two for myself and gave one to my sister. She loved the magnets too and will be getting some for herself.Read More
