Centre Lumiere Designs

Beautiful colors and designs are uniquely handcrafted into each item. We pride ourselves on quality, artistic value, and beauty - all in functional pieces like handbags, dishtowels, or table covers. Our line of products includes many useful items for the home and kitchen, ladies accessories, and doll clothes. The items are made by graduates of Centre Lumiere School using the practical skills they learned during our three year program.

The vision for Centre Lumiere was born in the heart of a German missionary, Luise Schurer, in 1975 after she and her husband arrived in Haiti. The need for better education plus income opportunities resulted in a unique ministry that combines a life school and work opportunities. The product line has evolved over the years but the concept remains the same – producing high quality handmade items that women can make in their homes while caring for their families.
