it’s not unusual for customers to ask me if we carry any pieces from haiti. i think this country is special to so many for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which includes the following: the fact that this tiny country has endured crippling natural disasters, governmental corruption, as well as being considered the poorest country in the western hemisphere. because of this, Haiti’s artisan networks have become a vital platform for many people to make a living. after several natural disasters damaged artisan workshops and threatened these important networks, Noonday wanted to be a part of restoring them and helping create an American market for their special pieces. we are proud to support these artisans as they work to rebuild and rejuvenate their communities.
