In the Caribbean, the term is used to indicate the mixture of peoples, languages and cultures that came to form the modern-day descendants of the Caribbean.

Here at Antillean the Creole with its emphasis on the local and the handmade holds a special place in the work that we are doing as both a home goods company and fostering the local craft traditions of the Caribbean region as a whole.
Consequently, an entire section of Antillean is dedicated to the handmade and the folk and craft traditions of the region. That section is called Creole.
Here, you will find exquisite handmade embroidery that focuses on the fruits, flowers, landscape, and people of the Caribbean; our well-known folk paintings and carved calabashes, and every-day we are working to bring more of our gorgeous Caribbean traditions into more and more homes in the Caribbean and around the world.
