Keep the faith with a beautiful daily reminder in your decor! This recycled steel drum wall hanging perfectly pairs the harsh of the metal with the beauty of the scripted word.
Haiti has one of the highest unemployment rates in the Western Hemisphere. While jobs may not be plentiful, old steel drums are. Artisan cut these drums with tin snips and, depending on the design, hand pound the metal, hand paint the pattern, or both. The environment of the island is completely devastated. Due to deforestation, less than 5% of the land now has tree coverage. Without these trees, birds are also scarce. Through the purchase of this wall art, coffee trees are planted. As the trees grow, they not only offer income, but also forest protection that is slowly bringing back the birds.
