A work of art that works in life, is the aim of many artists, artisans and craftspersons.
Chris Mast and Lilo Nido, owners of Art Fabrik, winner of the 2012 Caribbean UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicraft, introduce to Grenada, high-quality solar-powered lights for living, learning, and earning.
Little Sun solar-powered lights were created by an artist and an engineer to provide one evening of light when charged in five hours of sunlight. Little Suns are durable, affordable and safe additions to hurricane readiness kits and boat essentials.
By buying the Little Sun lamp, you help make light available to communities with no or inconsistent electricity across the globe. Buy a Little Sun: share the light. And help reduce energy consumption and raise global awareness of energy access and solar power.
Supporting art that makes a difference in and to communities is part of what makes Art Fabrik unique. Over the last 27 years, with the assistance of up to 45 home workers and local contractors including a number of graduates from the School for the Deaf, Art Fabrik’s batik production house on Young Street supports local crafters by combining elements of their craft with elements of batik to produce unique end products. Specialty items such as Fair Trade crafts and the Little Sun make the Art Fabrik boutique a shopping experience with a conscience.
