    We help our people develop their talents.”

    Sharing with the artisans of Caribbean Craft

    At the end of 2017 the artisans asked Magalie to do a food basket distribution instead of having the traditional Christmas party.

    It is unacceptable that people who are willing to work hard have no opportunities. I am proud of the artisans of this country, proud of their talent and their willingness to learn more.

    Caribbean Craft strives to find “ecological” uses for recyclables and waste material. The renowned “oil drum art” is made from recycled steel drums; the trendy papier maché statuettes come from empty cement bags and the starch is locally grown arrowroot.

    This papier mache elephant toy-box, also used as a chair, has its trump in the typical "good luck" position. Made with eco-friendly arrowroot and even more eco-friendly recycled cement bags we hope it will bring luck to the whole planet.

    This friendly hippo toy-box for children rooms can also be used as a stool. Watch out though as to not fall down!

    The rhino toy box, like all our papier mache, is made with recycled paper from used cement bags and a natural glue extracted from arrowroot in the South of Haiti. The reds and oranges on the cover are dyed paper, not paint.

Jean is a multi-talented worker: he works in all sections of the papier mache workshop and is the main "courrier" of the company with his motorcycle. He is also a pastor, commenting the Bible during the breaks, or even during the working hours.
