I began working in Haiti over 19 years ago with the goal of fighting poverty through art. During that time, we have worked with as many as 120 artists, cultivating business relationships, and building friendships. We have learned the good that comes from Fair Trade. Because of our firm belief in Fair Trade and its practice, every sale we make of metal art makes a positive impact on the artist who produces it. Those benefits flow through the whole workshop and create prosperity for their own family, workers and apprentices, and ultimately, the entire village. We are proud to be a part of that and we hope that as you admire your new piece of handcrafted, recycled folk art you will feel a bit of that pride as well.
This piece is an example of what we have carried in the past. Visit our website or our Etsy shop to see our full collections!

This wonderful piece of art work is handcrafted by Haitian artisans in their traditional manner by using materials they find around them. In this case the metal from recycled oil drums is cut, shaped and contoured to produce the desired outcome. Considering the dire economic circumstances under which the Haitian people find themselves it is a true mark of human imagination and resourcefulness that they carry on this artistic tradition. The Haitian artists who designed and sculpted this art piece work with the Beyond Borders organization and are well-compensated for their efforts. The Haitian metal drum wall art we are offering here is a set of 5 small birds flying.
