Across the Caribbean sea there is a country that in 1804 made world history but that is now known for all the wrong reasons. But it is home for the most creative, hardworking, proud and friendly people. Haiti, is home for the most beautiful art: painting, music, sculpture. In ancient times, the Arawak used to carve stones and we kept it as a tradition to this day.

At Caribbean Craft we focus on cultural preservation and traditions and each hand carved pieces sold seek to honor those traditions.


In a country maintained in division for the lack of vision for the common goods, we decided to promote the hearts of Leogane, the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Alongside with the stone carvers, we are engaged in the fight to show the world the beautiful side of this country. Through love, discipline and hard work we will contribute to making Haiti shine like it once did.
