I recently learned of a campaign that was spearheaded by Macy’s after the devastating earthquake of 2010 that affected Haiti. This came up with an initiative known today as Heart of Haiti. The Heart of Haiti creates hope for the people of Haiti by bringing in income for artisans so they can care for their family. It allows them to continue to create beautiful works of art and sell their unique, handcrafted pieces at Macy’s. By working with Macy’s it opens up opportunities for the artists to work with US designers, which in turn, helps strengthen international artisan relationships.
Heart of Haiti artisans all have their own individual specialties however, they often work in collective groups. There are different varieties of art including, jewelry, metal work and wood work.
Featured in the above pictures is the Heart of Haiti: Horn stretch bracelet modeled by my lovely sister. The bracelet’s stretch feature gave it a wonderful fit and it was very comfortable. I love it’s chunky, stylish look and it is the perfect accessory to complete various looks in my closet.
The Heart of Haiti collection is sold exclusively at Macy’s and products retail from $15 to $100. Half of the wholesale price of each item goes back to the artisans of Haiti to help support their families and rebuild their lives.
