Stone Leaf Incense Holder
Add a touch of nature to your home décor with the Stone Leaf Incense Holder. This incense holder comes from makers in Haiti, where artisans are often self-taught in crafts such as stone-carving, in order to support themselves in a country with very few economic resources. Our partners at Comite Artisanal Haitien help stone carvers find fair trade markets and income opportunities for their skills.

THE MAKERS

The nonprofit Comité Artisanal Haitien (CAH) was founded in 1973 to help rural craftspeople sell their wares in Port–au–Prince, to provide income and to help reduce the flow of migration from the countryside to the city. Though rural to urban migration continues, CAH helps artisans earn a living from their skills. The economic situation in Haiti is bleak, and the need for income generation is great. CAH craft sales often are the sole income source for artisans and their families.CAH markets and exports crafts made by Haitian artisans, cooperatives and craft groups, who depend on CAH to find a fair price for their handicrafts. CAH provides marketing and promotional expertise, training in literacy and business skills for artisans, and financial assistance in case of health emergencies. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from CAH since 1978.
