Dou Dou Board with Knife by Atelier Calla from Haiti

$24.00

What does dou dou mean? It's Creole for little darling and honestly this little cutting board is so cute! I love it's sleek lines. Whether you use this mahogany cutting board as a quick grab to chop up your herbs or as a beautiful board to put some cheese and olives on, you will love it! My guess is that you will want to keep it out all the time so you will think of many new ways to display it! It would also make a beautiful gift. We recommend that you do not put it in your dishwasher and if you want to preserve it's life, occasionally rub a bit of olive oil on it.

Dimensions: Board 10.5 x 8 inches, knife 6.25 x 1 inches

 

Atelier Calla opened their workshop in Haiti in 2011 as a way to show people the love of Christ. Christelle, a banker of 12 years, was determined to give her artisans dignified employment; a safe environment to work in, a steady paycheck, and a meal. They started with 4 artisans and now have grown to 6 full time employees. I love how Christelle has imparted ownership to her artisans, they work together as a team to ensure all orders are fulfilled on time and with utmost quality. But what I love the most is how she is investing in the person and not just the work they can perform. Is it more work? Absolutely, but the results are lasting.

Empowering people. Changing lives.
