About the Maker
Haiti Design Co was founded in 2014 with the goal to bring about sustainable development through design, training, and job creation. Our mantra around the workshop is "Men anpil, chay pa lou". This is an old Haitian proverb meaning "Many hands make the load light". We believe that there is a commonality between the designer, maker, and consumer, and that when working together we can help lighten each other's load and bring about lasting positive impact. Little by little our small workshop has grown and evolved into a training and production center employing over 150 people within our workshop and HDC partner branches. Over the years, HDC has collaborated with many talented designers that have come to Haiti and led workshops to train teams in new and better production techniques. These collaborations have been the foundations for many of the teams we are able to employ today. Haiti Design Co houses and partners with production teams working in many types of artisan crafting, including leatherwork, sewing, jewelry making, aluminum casting, metal work, weaving, beadwork, horn & bone, tailoring, and shoe making. We work to provide consistent employment in-house in order to give job training and stability to individuals in vulnerable situations, as well as raise up artisan leaders to succeed as independent entrepreneurs in the community. We believe the marriage of design and purpose can have a long lasting ripple affect of development and community building.
