Meet Betty! Gold hooks with horn 

The Story:
Atelier Calla is a Haitian woman-owned artisan workshop focused on handcrafting Haitian-sourced horn, bone, and wood products. We love our partnership with them and their elegantly designed, timeless designs.  

All horn and bone used is sourced in-country as a by-product of food.


The Details:
-95% local materials (except the earring hooks!)
-length: 2 in.

 

  • Artisans are paid a living wage (approximately 135%  the minimum wage for Haiti) for the time they spend making goods, upfront, by the piece.
  • We live here in the city where we are working. We are a part of this community.  All our goods are made in Haiti and most are made in Gonaives; many of our artisans are from Jubilee, a small developing community on the outskirts of Gonaives by the sea. This neighborhood is so special to us, because it is where our work originally started.
