FAIT LA FORCE
Rooted in simple beauty and a commitment to sustainable long-term partnerships, Fait La Force works in developing parts of the world to put traditional crafts in a new context while stimulating economic growth. Its project in Haiti is based in a cooperative in Port-au-Prince, where it aims to provide dignity through work and fair wages, while making beautiful objects. The name Fait La Force was inspired by the phrase "L'Union Fait La Force" or "Strength in Unity," representing the strength found in partnerships: between Fait La Force and its artisans, artisans and designers worldwide, and creator and consumer. The hand-quilted checkerboard is made from recycled denim and indigo-dyed canvas, with pieces made from horn (the brown pieces) and bone (the white pieces).
