Haitians regularly eat goat meat for their Sunday dinner. It is considered respectful to utilize the entire animal and not waste the life it has given up. The skin is often used to make drums and other household goods. Artisans salvage what they can as well to make these journals.


Papillon Marketplace began when a young mother of two wanted to add to her family through adoption. After spending a week at an orphanage in Haiti, she was surprised to find out that these children had mothers who were alive, but just too poor to care for their children. She set her heart on providing jobs for at-risk mothers so that they would be able to keep their kids. Shelley Jean started Papillon because no child should ever be abandoned because of poverty. Your purchase helps provide the opportunity of a lifetime for mothers and fathers in Haiti.
