About Cedar and Cypress Designs:
In the Old Testament we read in 1 Kings that when the temple was constructed Solomon used Cedar and Cypress wood. That is where our name comes from. We want to be the foundation and the support for others like Cedar and Cypress was for the temple. Whether that is companies or artisans in Haiti, individual people, missionaries or families.
Cedar and Cypress Designs partners with independent artisans in Haiti. Through your purchase and support, we are in turn able to purchase and support our artisan partners in Haiti. Our goal is to support others though job creation.
Being a support is the core of who we are.
