Country: Haiti and Mexico
Demographic of Artisans: Extreme Poverty
Vi Bella means “beautiful life” because everyone deserves a life filled with beauty, hope, dignity and purpose.
Over 60 artisans are employed in Haiti and Mexico. In areas such as these, one employed person can support up to ten others. Artisans master techniques such as wire-wrapping, hand beading, and sewing using natural and locally sourced materials such as coconut, horn, seeds, and leather.
At Vi Bella, artisans find meaningful community, dignified employment, and reliable wages. These three commitments are the foundation for quality pieces that hold a story of redemption.
