In case you haven’t heard, Macy’s is now offering products from a new line entitled “Heart of Haiti”.
The Heart of Haiti collection is an array of handmade products for the home such as quilts, metalwork, ceramics, paintings, vases, picture frames, necklaces, clutch purses and more, which typically fall within the $25-$60 range. Each item is designed by a Haitian master artisan and produced by hand in Haiti from recycled materials.
Through the sale of Heart of Haiti products, artisans are able to earn life-changing income for themselves, their families, and their communities. The initiative is enabling artisans to repair homes, pay school fees, and feed and clothe their families. The income also allows them to have access to better nutrition, improved education and healthcare.
The Heart of Haiti collection has already led to employment of 350 artists in Haiti and has provided some financial benefits for an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 people in the country.
The collection is truly helping the people of Haiti rebuild their lives and communities through commerce and culture.
