About: Gifts With Humanity is the retail division of Global Fair Trade Crafts Inc DBA Global Crafts.
Global Crafts was founded in 2002 by Kevin Ward and Renice Jones, who met as volunteer computing teachers in Kenya realized the capacity of the web to help individual artisans. After three years in Kenya they came to the USA and setup Global Crafts, initially as a small Fair Trade retail store. It soon became apparent that to sell in volume and change the lives of the artisans, the wholesale business would have to grow.
Starting in a garage at home Global Crafts has become a $1 million a year outlet for Fair Trade artisan handicrafts. We look forward to continued growth in the next few years and hope we are making a small difference.

Literally Orange Earrings

Literally Orange Earrings
Literally Orange Earrings

I have a thing for lemons, limes and oranges. I used to photograph them all of the time and slice them up in different arrangements, put lights on them and snap away. I have always had a liking for all 3 fruits less for eating and more for their vibrant colors and shapes. I am not sure why but I think they are beautiful to look at now I can wear them! I love it. The Literally Orange Earrings are actual orange slices coated in a resin for preservation that you can wear and they won’t go bad! How awesome is that! Talk about using natural resources right? When you purchase the Literally Orange Earringsyou are helping Chilean artisans create an income for their families and communities. Your small purchase can go a long way. Gifts With Humanity is an incredible organization that focuses on helping communities capitalize on their art or craft where the locals otherwise couldn’t. Always remember to think about the impact your purchasing power really has!

About the Artisans:
Carlo Brutus and Eugene Jacques are two of the many artisans in Croix des Bouquets, an area of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti known for artisans who make oil drum art. Eugene’s shed is tucked behind several others and yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. Each piece is a work of art and signed with “Eugene”. Carlo has what seemed like hundreds of different design of the ubiquitous round steel drum artworks hanging from every inch of wall space in his tiny warehouse.
The Diaspora of Haitians has spread the designs and skills of Oil Drum art throughout the Caribbean but the art is truly Haitian. Old oil drums are no longer readily available and are imported into Haiti by container and sold to the artisans. Even though cheaper, more readily available steel sheets could be used, artisans rely on the used drums for the patina in their art.
