These heart ornaments are made from “rough horn”, ensuring the ethical use of animals in the food supply. This heart-shaped ornament is created in a workshop that supports 20 families (over 100 people) with guaranteed pay above minimum wage, one daily meal, an annual bonus and life insurance. Each ornament measures approximately 3″ x 3″.
Atelier Calla was started in 2007 as a way to revitalize the artisan work with bone, horn and wood in Haiti and combat the low employment rate and degrading education system. Each purchase of Atelier Calla products contributes to teacher training and job creation.
