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 box focuses on their artisans in most need of support.




Makeup Bag

This quilted cotton makeup bag is the perfect size for my travel needs! I think the color and pattern are really pretty, too – it kind of reminds me of a watermelon! The colors are perfect for spring. This bag was handmade and block printed by artisans in Rajasthan, India.



Turquoise and Silver Bracelet

This bracelet was made by a single mother in the Philippines as a means of supporting her young son. I absolutely love turquoise and silver together! It’s one of my favorite jewelry types ever! The anchor and buoy charms are really cute, too.



Mini Journal

This journal is so cute and tiny! Obviously, a lot of work has gone into it. It’s made from recycled cotton, and the cover is embroidered. It’s super soft! These little journals were made by a family in Jaipur, India.

Verdict: Elevita is awesome! I really appreciate everything they do to help global artisans, and I love feeling like I’m a part of that. This month’s items were all lovely, but I can’t decide if I like the bracelet or the makeup bag more! They are both so cool. I don’t have retail values for everything, but I think $30 for this box is a bargain.

What do you think of Elevita?

  1. This was my first box and I’m on the fence about it. I love the bracelet. It’s not something I would have picked out for myself but it’s pretty and obviously very well made. I wasn’t too crazy about the other items. The “journal” is way too small to do anything with and the makeup bag felt like something I could get in a $10 three piece set at Walmart. Maybe I’d feel differently if I saw the special way it was made, but that’s what it feels like. That said, it’s hard to beat the fact that Elevita is nonprofit and 100% of profits support humanitarian efforts, so for that reason I’ll probably stick with it for another month or two before deciding whether to become a long term subscriber.
