Newspaper Head Lines

Didn't you see the news? It's barging through the wall as a rhinoceros! Handmade in Haiti by artists displaced by the earthquake from 100% recycled newspaper, cardboard and paper, this statement piece is a thing of wild beauty. Comes with a hole in the back for hanging from single nail. Due to the reclaimed nature of the materials each rhino will vary.

Sales support artists in Carribean Craft, an FTC-supported job workshop for craftsmen living post-earthquake in temporary housing. The colorful and uplifting animal heads were designed collaboratively with Aid to Artisan designers, and support 200 Haitians rebuilding their lives through artwork.

Made in

Through collaboration in product development, business skills training, and development of new markets, Aid to Artisans provides sustainable economic and social benefits for crafts people all over the world in an environmentally sensitive and culturally respectful manner.

In 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, killing an estimated 316,000 people and leaving countless others injured and homeless.

Fair trade artisans working in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and in Leogane, the town most affected by the magnitude 7.0 earthquake, now work to bring money back into the communities they are struggling to rebuild.

Thanks to Aid to Artisans and the fair trade certified companies with which they work these artisans are ensured safe working conditions and given fair wages.
