Haiti Babi

Maker - Katlin Jackson

Maker Story

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.
