Rooted in simple beauty and a commitment to sustainable long term partnerships, Fait La Force partners with artisan makers + cooperatives, using natural materials and traditional techniques. We work in developing parts of the world and hope to put traditional craft in a new context while stimulating economic growth.
Our project in Haiti is based in a cooperative in Port-au-Prince and with artisan partners in the community. We are working to create jobs, skills + access to markets, while making beautiful things.
The name Fait La Force was inspired by the phrase "L'Union Fait La Force" or "Strength in Unity." For us this represents the strength found in partnerships; between us and our artisans, artisans and designers worldwide and between creator and consumer.
