Our Double Tree of Life Wall Sculptures are created by Haitian artisans through our fair trade partner Beyond Borders. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with 80% of the population living under the poverty line. Successful international business relationships are few, partly due to concerns over safety and political instability.

Beyond Borders began representing Haitian artists in 1989, empowering individual artisans to create development opportunities that respect the native culture and foster environmentally sustainable practices. These artists are able to use materials around them in new and inventive ways to create unique pieces of art. Beyond Borders works with dozens of individual artists, many of whom have tens or even hundreds of employees of their own, creating countless new opportunities to earn a fair wage and develop their artistic and business skills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful piece of metal work The art work is really beautiful, much more so than in the picture. There is depth to the piece, areas stick out and it adds some great dimension. I do, however, wish that it was a bit larger. October 26, 2009
