We purchase our gorgeous Guatemalan crafts for a fair price at markets in Antigua and Panajachel.
We buy our Haitian metal pieces from a large art market specializing in these types of crafts, and from several individual vendors. These unique pieces were all created from oil drums and other recycled metal items. The metal is heated, flattened, and cut, and often shaped and embossed using only a hammer and nail. The difficulty and intensity of this process yields truly unique and beautiful pieces, each carrying the spirit of the resilience of the Haitian people.
