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.
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.
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.
