Beauty comes from unlikely places, like out of the rubble from Haiti's 2010 earthquake. Fifty women living in tent camps after losing their homes came together to form OFDALAF (Organization of Dedication Women in Action). Since then the group has grown to over 200 women working together to support and encourage each other to live with hope and possibility.

Made by: Artisan Business Network
Artisans Business Network is a network of three depots located in Jacmel, Port au Prince and Croix-des-Bouquets in Haiti. It offers a wide range of artisanal products from the independent ateliers of Haiti and supports the delivery of handmade products to customers around the world. Artisan Business Network empowers Haitians with entrepreneurial tools, design input and market access.
Artisan Business Network producers create products from materials like papier mache, bone, horn, metal, beads and stone. The products range from home décor to holiday and jewelry. The depots are fully owned and operated by Haitian entrepreneurs. In addition to its co-founders, the network draws upon the talents of product and logistics advisors dedicated to the success of Haiti’s artisans.
The Network helps make essential improvements in earnings and community wellbeing for their producers through commerce based in Haiti’s profound artisanal culture. Talented Haitians are ready and eager to recapture the losses brought about by the trade embargo of the 1990’s, subsequent internal political deadlock, and the devastation of the January 2010 earthquake.
