Haiti Made is united around quality products, dignified jobs, and economic sustainability in an effort to diminish abject poverty and fight against the orphan and child slavery crisis in Haiti. The "Tise Beanie” is a beautifully knitted acrylic beanie complete with a tag signed by the Haitian artisan that crafted it. Handcrafted in Haiti with 100% Acrylic Hand-sewn logo tag. Haiti Made’s wide range of colors makes these beanies perfect for fall! Personally, I’m loving the Mustard Yellow color! Haiti Made’s ethically crafted beanies sell for $24 and are great because you can pair them with so many different outfits.
