Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review - August 2013

Fair Treasure is a wonderful subscription box service that combines supporting fair trade with curating boxes of “treasures” each month. Fair Treasure kindly sent me this box to review.

Each box comes with cards detailing each of the products included, and shares the story of the makers behind the items!

Beyond Borders Wall Art – Value $10

This metal art bird comes complete with a hook in the back so it’s ready for handing. I think I may use this as a part of our Christmas decorations this holiday season!

Sequence Love Knot Bracelet – Value $40

I love the gold and muted-pink colors of this bracelet – it’s definitely arm-party worthy! The story behind the brand is equally beautiful:

Founded in 2011, Sequence is a collection of jewelry and accessories designed by El Salvadorian-born Ariela Suster. After years of working in New York City as fashion and accessories editor at iconic publications such as Instyle, Lucky and Harpers Bazaar, she started Sequence: a line inspired by the vibrant design and culture of Latin America. Her love of ‘70s bohemia—mixed with modern pops of color—is evident in every memorable piece, which is expertly handcrafted by local artisans in Tepecoyo, an El Salvadorian neighborhood near Ariela’s hometown.

In the two years since the Sequence workshop opened its doors, it’s become like a second home to employees, offering steady work, weekend art classes and a positive alternative to local gang culture. This convergence of high style and down-to-earth, old-school craftsmanship is what makes Sequence truly unique. Each style, beautifully created out of ambition and spirit, gives back to the community, spreading light + love along the way.

Verdict: I’m definitely a fan of Fair Treasure! I love that they both support fair trade products, and introduce you to the makers behind the products. It definitely takes the items to a special “treasure” category! What do you think about Fair Treasure?

  1. I got a subscription to Fair Treasure as a birthday gift for my BFF based on reviews I’d read. She’s going to get 3 boxes starting with the September box, I think. I hope she loves it!
