Georges Valris was born in1953, in Cavaillon, Haiti. Valris had worked as a basket-maker, in a clothing factory and as a stevedore on a cruise ship before a friend showed him the technique of sewing sequins used in vodou flags. He sold his first flag to Galerie Marassa in Port-au-Prince, and went on to successfully market his flags to galleries, collectors and tourists.
