Papillon is an incredible place to shop for antique and Haitian handicrafts. There is a working where you can actually watch the procedure of making antiques and the raw material they use. Basically, they use quality raw material, which does not affect your health and looks beautiful in your house. Moreover, the product they use is well-finished and gives the lustrous look to every antique and handicraft. There you will many gifting items that are reasonable in price as well. All the workers who are working actually giving advantage to their families plus they are putting all their efforts in the work. Their work actually shows their hard work and sincerity towards their work. I loved this place very much and fact that workers are working for their family, not only for themselves.

Papillon is an incredible find. It is both a gallery of Haitian handicraft (that is geared to a wider audience's tastes) and a working factory. You'll find great beads, ceramics, punched tin ornaments and pieces of art--and these fabulous rolled paper beaded creations being used now by Donna Karan and Chan Lu in their jewelry. And there's a smoothie bar to boot! What's really special is that the folks working here are being paid a living wage, and their work provides for their families. It was easy to find beautiful things for Christmas gifts, the only problem is that I want to keep them for myself.
