the heart of haiti

Ok. In an effort to promote more regular blogging in very, very busy times (read: we are moving to Cape Town, South Africa & I leave 3 weeks from today!) I am vowing to a) post more regularly through these busy times b) post even if there are few words. So, this will be the first in a series of mostly-visual stories. Enjoy!

I have written before about Fairwinds Trading and the amazing work they are doing with artisans across the world, but let me introduce their very special Heart of Haiti initiative. Started shortly after the earthquake in 2010, FWT began working with local artisans to develop beautiful pieces that continue the longstanding artisan traditions while reaching a wide audience at stores such as Macy's and Anthropolgie here in the USA. Take a look at some of their recent work from time in Haiti over the past few months!
