About the Artisan Group:
Papillon Marketplace is a fair-trade certified, socially conscious lifestyle brand dedicated to supporting at-risk mothers and fathers with full-time artisan jobs in Haiti. Papillon’s mission of orphan prevention and family preservation through job creation has proven itself to be a viable solution for the current poverty orphan crisis affecting many developing nations.
Papillon provides hope and dignity with employment rather than a hand out. The skills and training that each staff member receives, provides the foundation for a sustainable future. Employees receive a living wage, usually 3x the minimum wage in Haiti with medical and social benefits. They also receive job skills training, language & literacy development, computer & software training while working in an environment that is creative and family-friendly, including on-site child care.
With each product you can expect slight variations as a part of the artisan-crafted charm.
