The town of Gonaives is located in the north eastern part of Haiti. Jobs are scarce, especially for women. One of the few opportunities for underserved women to support themselves and their children is by creating small cottage-style businesses with the help of The Haven Partnership and Women of Milot Entrepreneurial Network.
This "One-of-a-kind" Pot Holder was made by Monique R. at a training seminar. It's not perfect, but it's beautiful. Practice work is always a gift and they are now for sale. Each is made from scrap fabrics chosen by the ladies.
All funds go back to Haiti to purchase more fabric and supplies that keep the program going.
Each pot holder is double lined on both sides with cotton batting and insulated lining. Outer layers are made from 100% imported cotton fabric. Machine wash, dry flat.
