Croix des Bouquet is an artisan village in Haiti that has become a major stopping place for visitors to the island. Since the 1940's, Haitians have been taking discarded 55 gallon oil drums and turning them into beautiful pieces of art with the simplest of tools. All of the work is done by hand as they squat in the dirt and the sound created when they are all working at the same time is incredible.
In the last year, there has been a lot of work done to make this village more visitor friendly and it is so exciting to see all the changes taking place.
We at Market Haiti are excited to offer these pieces for sale here in the U.S. Each one is an amazingly detailed piece of work and deserves to be celebrated! Because they are all done by hand, they may be similar, but no two are exactly alike. Order your unique piece today!
We are continually adding new and different pieces to the web site. Check back often!
