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. Working in collaboration with Fait La Force, Oblin Etienne is a third-generation loom weaving artisan who has been perfecting his craft for more than 27 years. Due to a decrease in resources available in Haiti over the years, his creations have become increasingly difficult to produce, so Etienne is proud of his craft and of being able to carry on his family tradition. His favorite part of the weaving process is preparing the threads, which usually takes him one to two days. He finds weaving to be therapeutic and says he enjoys being able to quietly work with his hands from his home in Port-au-Prince.
