THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Haiti Design Co
Haiti Design Co-op was founded in 2014 with the goal to bring about sustainable development through design, training, and job creation. Our mantra around the workshop is "MEN ANPIL, CHAY PA LOU". This is an old Haitian proverb meaning "MANY HANDS MAKE THE LOAD LIGHT". We believe that there is commonality between the designer, maker, and consumer, and that when working together we can help lighten each other's load and bring about lasting positive impact.
The cooperative grew quickly and today it employs 150 people within the workshop and HDC partner branches. HDC works tirelessly to provide consistent employment in-house in order to give job training and stability to individuals in vulnerable situations, as well as raise up artisan leaders to succeed as independent entrepreneurs in the community.
