Once again, everything arrived in this lovely cotton drawstring bag! Such a nice bonus!
This is the letter I received in my package. It goes into great detail about the items in my package, and especially the artisans who created them. It really helps make these items feel so special. This month’s package is travel themed.
This beautiful luggage tag was handmade by artisans in India using traditional block printing techniques. It’s so pretty! Each piece is unique, too.
My second item this month is a hand-beaded hand sanitizer holder. I never knew such a thing existed! It was crafted by an artisan in the Philippines. I like that it hangs the bottle upside down.
This travel wallet is lovely! It was made in Cambodia by a single mother who is wheelchair bound, which is so sad. I am so proud to be a part of Elevita and help her support her two young boys.
It’s official. These are the nicest greeting cards I own! Look at the beautiful gold foil! These cards were made by children in India as part of the Pathway Foundation, and organization that helps orphans with special needs.
Verdict: I am becoming a big fan of Elevita! I am so touched by the important work they do, and everything I have received from them so far has been so beautiful and special. My favorite this month is the set of cards, they’re just gorgeous! I also think $30 is a steal for four awesome pieces.
