If you're familiar with our Haiti partnerships, then you know about Benson the leather worker from Jubilee, Haiti. With the help of shoppers like you, Benson was able to start a small leather working guild, which has since grown to produce hundreds of products per year. These ornaments are made from the scraps of Benson's other works. The team in Haiti are committed to a no-waste production environment. These sturdy little stars are the fruits of that effort.
