Haitian handcrafts are a reflection of the vibrancy and creativity of its people, and for over 30 years, Comite Artisanal Haitien (CAH) has been committed to working with Haitian artisans to find markets for their products to help them earn a dignified living. CAH represents more than 200 Haitian artisans and groups who create beautiful works of art which have become hallmarks of Haitian craftsmanship.

We work to support Haitian artisans by providing them with professional development services and marketing their products. We are reviving the pride in traditional handicrafts while improving the lives of artisans, their families, and their communities throughout Haiti.
