Frequently Asked Questions
Who Are Caribbean Craft?
What's So Special About Caribbean Craft?
Caribbean Craft specializes in home decor accessories: handcrafted and hand painted items, metal sculptures, papier mâché, stone carving and basketry.
They produce and sell original Haitian handmade artisan products that will brighten your environment and improve the quality of life of Caribbean Craft's workers and people.
Haiti, a center of artistic creativity and inventiveness, is exemplified by the vibrant tradition and continuation of self-taught painting with colorful style and lines.
Based in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Caribbean Craft was founded in 1990. Through all the hardships that fell on Haiti, Caribbean Craft continued growing, becoming in the end of the 90’s the main provider of Haitian handicrafts for the Caribbean islands’ tourist market.
In 2006 Caribbean Craft became a woman owned company, and in 2009 was the first Haitian company to invest in a permanent showroom in Atlanta’s Americas Mart. This exposure to the American market introduced the company and its products to several important retailers like HomeGoods and Anthropologie. After the earthquake, even though Caribbean Craft lost its workshop, it managed to acquire new accounts like West Elm, Restoration Hardware, TOMS Shoes, Land of Nod, Crate and Barrel.
Since 2011 our customer list covers the United States, Canada, France, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Israel and most Caribbean Islands.

How Do You Offset Carbon?
We plant a tree with every item purchased on our store. Purchase 3 Caribbean Craft products & we'll plant 3 trees — offsetting carbon from shipping by reforesting lands with native flora, not quick grow tree farms.
We do this with the help of Ecologi & The Eden Reforestation Project. They partner with villages committed to restoring their forests. Hiring and training local villagers to plant new trees.
They only plant native tree species. And the villages protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them. See more here.
