Belblaq began as a creative outlet for our Executive Director and a few exceptional crochet students.
belblaq is a product of Bisou Bisou Haiti, a non profit organization providing supplemental education, recreational options and civic engagement opportunities to underpriviledged students.
We work with local crochet artists to teach our students how to perfect the skill as an alternate means of income. In Haiti, many goods are handmade and sold in the local market place. The students who show the most potential and interest are recruited to work with us. All employees are provided with a fare working wage, as this is a tedius and intricate process. Employees are also offered financial mangement trainning.
10% of all profits from belblaq are donated to the continuation of Bisou Bisou Haiti programs. It is our goal to produce a product with integrity from production to purchase. Support the work of Haitian artisans, support the development of Haitian youth.
