OOur Artisan Cooperative was founded in 1994 when founder Sarah Hackett, impressed by the embroidery skills of the local women found that they lacked the simplest of supplies to hone their skills. By providing these women needles and thread, Sarah realized that she could provide not only tools for embroidery, but also the means to make a living in an area where employment is scarce.
20+ years later the Artisan Cooperative employs nearly 100 women at Fair Trade wages. They make heirloom quality, handcrafted embroidered and knit products. We produce items under our own brand and are available for private label work. Our products are sold online, at retailers and events in the United States & Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these items goes directly toward supporting the Haiti Projects artisans, providing them with life changing income.
