Truly a work of art! These horn and wood serving utensils are made by Mr. Lafond and his team in Haiti. Horn, ethically sourced in Haiti, is given new life when sanded and polished. Each piece of horn takes on colors of ivory, tan, brown, black or any combination of these. No two utensils will be the same.
Mr. Lafond had this to say about your support, "Vi Bella has been a great partner for my workshop. We want to thank all of the customers that support our work. Because of you we are able to employ 30 artisans all year round." Thank you for supporting Haitian artisans using traditional skills.
Details: Wood handle. Horn spoon and fork. Hand wash only. Not dishwasher or microwave safe. Food safe. Due to the handmade and organic nature of this piece, slight variations in color, shape, dimension, and texture are to be expected and, as such, are assets of the handmade aesthetic.
Vi Bella means "beautiful life," and that's just what Vi Bella is out to see—beautiful, hopeful, vibrant lives in Haiti and Mexico. Vi Bella works with local artisans in these two developing countries to create a large collection of handmade jewelry, bags, accessories and home decor. They care for their artisans as people, and not just employees, providing living wages, a comfortable work environment, and care for artisans' physical and emotional well-being. Vi Bella invests in local communities by giving back all their profits for job creation in vulnerable areas and using locally-sourced materials in their products whenever possible. Vi Bella might just make your life a little more beautiful too. Their handcrafted accessories are as affordable as they are adorable!
