Comité Artisanat Haïtien

For outstanding metalwork, artisanal stone sculptures and vibrant painted boxes, go to Comité Artisanat Haitien. The artisanal market was established in 1972 and seeks to boost Haitian artwork, crafts and trinkets. It also aims to promote fair wages for its artists and artisans and to aid craftspeople sell their products in Port–au–Prince. It provides an income and reduces the migration from the countryside to the city. If you’re looking for the most creative of goods, visit Comité Artisanat Haitien and claim your artwork.
