Marie-Rose Innertube and Larimar Earring by Deux Mains from Haiti

$30.00

We LOVE these bold earrings! With innertube layered in angled slices swinging at the end of the lovely pale Larimar, these will have everyone asking, "Where did you get those earrings???" Even better is the story behind the earring.

Marie-Rose, is a trainee who will soon be a Deux Mains craftswoman. She lives in a refugee camp at the Haitian-Dominican Border where our inner tube is collected and cut into delicate patterns. The effervescent blue of the Dominican-sourced Larimar, against the striking black shards of inner tube prepared in the camp, are paired and assembled in our Port Au Prince factory.  These earrings are literally merging three groups of people in Hispaniola, representing a unified future.

Dimensions: 5" length

Deux Mains is French for "two hands" and was inspired by craftsmen using their own two hands to sculpt the sidewalls of tires into soles with a pride that comes from not only making something valuable for others, but also making a meaningful life for themselves. This artisan group hand crafts leather sandals from recycled car tires and local leathers as well as making some amazing bags and accessories. These artisans are part of a community in Haiti that is growing sustainability and empowerment.
