Made in Haiti: Supporting The Apparent Project | Babble

We all know about the devastating earthquake that hit the small country of Haiti in 2010. Since then, Haitians have had a hard time finding work. That’s why I’ve always been a supporter (and fan) of programs like Heart of Haiti. Initiatives like this are organized to help artisans earn money to support themselves and their families. Last month, I visited their booth at a conference and was introduced to The Apparent Project.

Not only was I introduced, but I just so happened to walk away with two beautiful handcrafted bracelets (below). And I was surprised to learn that they were made using discarded materials like cereal boxes, oil drums, and trash paper. Aren’t they gorgeous? via | Babble
