Atelier Mod'Ayiti

Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 
Building Occupancy / Site Capacity: 
65

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is boosting Haiti’s garment sector by committing to support the Haitian Network of Designers (HAND) with an $847K grant. The grant, managed by Haitian nonprofit consulting firm CHAPE, will allow HAND to establish ModAyiti, a garment workshop. Under the roof of ModAyiti, designers will come together to design and produce clothing, shoes, jewelry, and handbags for markets in Haiti and abroad. Designers will use ModAyiti’s expertise and modern sewing equipment to fashion orders from pattern-making to final production.

Most individual ateliers—local workshops of three to four workers—are unable to support large garment orders because of capacity constraints. The ModAyiti apparel center will unite these talented textile professionals with the space, training, and resources to allow them to bring their design talent to an international market with quality products produced on a larger scale.

The Atelier is a design-build project being carried out by YCF Group SA. It is currently in design with construction slated to begin in early 2013. Architecture for Humanity is acting as Client's Representative to support CHAPE throughout the process.
