I created Ptimoun in early 2011. My goal was twofold, first to provide work and a market to Haitian artisans, who had lost so much in the aftermath of the earthquake, and second to turn the profits of my sales to the Edem Foundation, and in particular, to its elementary school--Ecole du Village- in Ile à Vache, Haiti.
Please visit the Ptimoun web page to view our goods, see the artisans at work, then go to www.ecoleduvillage.org to visit the school and its children. Above all, come visit us an support us at Somerville Open Studios! Thank you. Anne Anninger
