For all of us, especially those who travel seeing the heart break of disaster around the globe is painful. Haiti’s 2010 earthquake devastated the country. FairWindsTrading is now working with artisans in Haiti through the product line Heart of Haiti . These pieces of art, jewelery and home decor are handcrafted by local artisans throughout Haiti.
Many of these artisans lost their homes and shops in the Haiti earthquake. Their skills, strength and determination are evident when you look at the many beautiful items they are creating, under conditions that are incredibly difficult. Through the purchase of these pieces of art and jewelery from Macy’s we provide a small measure of support to the artisans and their families in Haiti as they rebuild their lives.
