Caribbean Export seeks to develop and/or strengthen the bi-national craft/fashion/accessories/jewelry value chain.
The general objective of this consultancy is to develop a cartographic study of the value chain of crafts in Haiti. This study should explore the direct actors in the chain (producers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, etc.), indirect actors (suppliers of financial services, storage, transport, inputs, equipment, etc.), the specificities of Haitian crafts, production spaces, their stories, their folklore as well as the environment in which the chain is inscribed with regard to the actors and beneficiaries.
More specifically, this mapping should collect the following information with actions which should include:
Characterization of the elements that constitute the cultural heritage of Haitian craftsmanship. The techniques and expressions of its products, the uniqueness of each production area, the social reality of artisans including the legal framework.
The search for the folkloric origins of the elements of Haitian craftsmanship. Link the different artisan expressions to Haitian folklore, natural resources and the tourist offer of each region of Haiti and the island.
The search for the historical origins of elements of Haitian craftsmanship. Highlight the identity of each community in the Haitian handicraft production area through images while highlighting the historical cachet of the context, production techniques, designs, colors and target markets.
