Meet the Artisans

Metal Artisan in Haiti When you visit Croix des Bouquets, the area of town known for Haitian metal art in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, you are met with a cacophony of tink, tink, tink as ball peen hammers strike sheets of steel. The sheets are cut from steel drums colored by oil and other liquids the drums at one time held. The process of turning sheets of metal into beautiful wall art is all done by hand, from cutting holes that become edges of trees and leaves, to accenting each lizard with a texture of scales, to painting or lacquering the final design. The artists are proud of their work, signing the pieces on the back side, leaving a raised, reversed signature on the front.

Q - What are Memory Cross cards made of and how durable are they?

A - The small Memory Cross cards are printed on 10 point coated board (think playing cards).  The larger cards which measure 6 x 6 inches are printed on 100 lb. uncoated cover (think Hallmark card).  We've tested each size and they hold up to hundreds of folds.  The larger cards hold up longer because the "hinges" that allow them to fold are larger.  We've tested the larger cards to fold over 500 times.  That being said it is still important for the cards to be folded properly.  Most children can figure it out on their own but if you are giving them to 4 or 4 year olds we recommend that you show them how it works.  If you do not know how they work, we've created a video that you can watch by clicking here.

Q - What guarantee do you offer?

A - Memory Cross offers a 100% money back guarantee if you are not happy for any reason.  We even pick up the cost of shipping the product back.  Here is the link to our full return policy.
