Hope Supply is a bi-annual ethical fashion subscription box from the people behind Mi Esperanza, an organization bringing education and financial empowerment to women in Honduras.

Here’s how Mi Esperanza describes their box:

The idea of a subscription box took shape, a box that would be home to the brands that lovingly produce their good through Mi Esperanza. We would work together to curate an amazing collection of women’s fashion accessories to be enjoyed separately or together. We would together share the message HOPE and the humanity behind fashion and why it matters to purchase ethically. We want to put the faces behind fashion at the forefront. In a very competitive market, where most brands use cheap (and often slave) labor to produce their goods, we are committed to honor the humanity in the people who make our goods by paying them a living wage.

I always try to be careful about making ethical fashion decisions. I’m a huge fan of consignment and thrift store shopping, not only because of the amazing pieces and deals you can find, but because it’s a more green way to shop. But I struggle to find new items that aren’t made in exploitative factories, or by companies that don’t even disclose their manufacturing processes.

In short, I’m super excited about this box. This card lists the brands apart from Mi Esperanza that have ethically created items featured here.

There’s also a little info card about Mi Esperanza. The best part is what’s on the back…

The actual names of the women who helped created the Mi Esperanza piece are handwritten on the card. This is such a lovely, human detail to see in this box.

Mi Esperanza Simplicity Necklace – Value $24.00

I love this gold-plated necklace! The centerpiece of this 17″ chain is a row of creamy-white Bali glass beads, which provide a subtle, unique detail.

This necklace could look bohemian or crisp and modern, depending on what you wear it with. I love pieces with that kind of versatility!

Even the chain is unique, with its alternating small and large links. I think this piece is going to find its way into a lot of outfits!

Liz Alig Infinity Scarf – Value $36.00?

I love infinity scarves, both because they keep me warm and snuggly in the winter and because they just look ultra cool. This scarf, made from all sorts of different fabrics, is soft as my favorite T-shirt.

I love the bold, colorful stripes. This is a great, easy way to shake up a usual t-shirt-and-jeans look.

Inside there’s a tag with the name of the artisan who made this piece. So cool!

Tribe Alive Ring – Value $25.00

I’m so into this sleek, modern ring. It’s so simple, yet it feels so edgy and cool.

This brass ring fits comfortably on my ring finger, which is usually around a size 7. When it’s on, it looks like I’m wearing two stacked rings.

I’ll be curious to see how long this ring can go without tarnishing. Especially because I’m totally wearing this ring every day.

Pillow Sham by Arrowroot – Value ?

Arrowroot is an ethical fashion producer that doesn’t typically produce home items, so this 12 x 12 sham is pretty unique. The fabric is lightweight and loosely woven together, almost like linen. I like the light gray arrow pattern—it’s simple enough to go with my current decor, but still catches the eye.

This item, too, has the name of the artisan who made it on a tag inside. It’s a great reminder that all products come from somewhere. I’m thankful that these ones came from companies who respect the people who help their business thrive.

Verdict: I love Hope Supply! The value of the box is over $80.00, which makes it well worth the $60.00. I know that even $60.00 sounds like a lot, but I think that’s a fair price for ethically made products (it’s the difference between items made cheaply and ones made in fair situations). These items are super high-quality and beautifully designed. I’m so excited to add them to my day-to-day life!

What do you think of Hope Supply?

  1. I love this box! Is this one still available

  2. I agree on the cost being worth it for products produced like these are. I would love to try this box but unfortunately I don’t wear jewelry so it wouldn’t be worth it for me.

  3. This box looks super great! The scarf isn’t my style but everything else is! I’ll keep a lookout on this box.

  4. What a nice box! I love the necklace, too, and I agree that it’s very versatile.

  5. I just ordered this for that scarf!! ❤❤❤I did checkout their Facebook page and there was a coupon code for 50% off in their shop which includes this box. I already have the ring from a previous Globein box, but who cares, the scarf and sham alone are worth it to me. They have some nice things, but a lot of items are out of stock. Use HOLIDAYHERO. It worked for me!! Not sure how long it will be active though!!

    And with the recent Globein debacle, I as a longtime customer will be cancelling both of my subs with them and continue to have my eye out on this sub!!

    • Correction…I think the above coupon code only works for the 03 box, not the other shop items…although I’m not quite sure bc I didn’t order anything else, but I guess it’s worth a try regardless!!

      • That code is for everything in the shop but is time limited.

  6. I’ve ordered three boxes from them. Always great!

  7. I like this one a lot better than their last one. The necklace is really cute. For us sub box junkies the ring is a repeat from the Globein jewelry box.
