AWESOME BLANKETS!!!

by

I bought 2 for my newborn---I LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE BLANKETS (and hat). They are gorgeous...soft...warm...extremely well made. I had it with me in the hospital and the photographer used it in some pictures wrapped my baby in it. Then the hearing test lady came in and loved the blanket...I told her the story of where it is made, who made it, etc etc and she screamed "I'm from Haiti!!" so it was great fun.
These are such high quality and so soft! I am a picky baby blanket mama...love these. Love that we also are supporting a great cause and that they sent me a pic of the people and names of who made it!

wonderful blanket

by

This blanket was the talk of my daughter's baby shower. I purchased the stone/teal blanket for a baby boy and she loved it. She also loved how soft the blanket is.More > < Less

PRICES NEED TO GO UP!

by

The only "down" I can think of for these items is that the price is TOO LOW. As one who knits and crochets by hand, the work involved in these blankets and hats should cost a lot more. I have sold many hand made crocheted items and for a blanket like these, I have sold them for $125 including a hat. The prices of these items is far too low for the work involved.More > < Less

Want to buy this but too pricey

by

This ticks all the boxes for me and I really want to buy one for a very sweet couple having their first baby but $78 for a baby blanket is just too steep. I'm sure the Haiti Ladies deserve more, but I have to consider how it will be used. It will get stained, snagged and laundered many times. I am thrilled to find a baby line that isn't from a mid-19th Century time capsule. The four color pastel palette has been around for over 50 years, for no good reason. I hope the Haiti Ladies make more baby products within my price range for baby gifts. I'm glad I found this online outlet and will be doing some serious shopping. If the shipping delivers as promised, I'll be a regular.More > < Less

Haiti Babi - Artisan Baby Hats & Blankets

About Haiti Babi

Children, Covered

Haiti Babi hand makes artisan hats and blankets with eye-catching designs and a sophisticated color palette, a refreshing break from typical pastels. Each piece is beautifully knit with a contrasting crocheted edge featuring a pop of color at the end. Made from durable 100% Pima cotton, they are soft and snuggly, but can endure teething and washing.

As much as Haiti Babi’s designs caught our eye, its story captured our heart. It’s a sad fact, but roughly half a million Haitian children live in orphanages, most with living parents who simply can’t afford the basic necessities to raise them. Atlanta-native Katlin Jackson volunteered at such an orphanage, and was inspired to change this cycle of poverty. She founded Haiti Babi, which trains Haitian moms to knit and crochet, an employable skill that provides a livable income. The mothers gain economic independence and, most importantly, their families can stay intact.

These snuggly, exquisite blankets and hats do more than keep your little one cozy and cute. The impact on moms and children in Haiti gives each piece true significance.
