Elevita April 2018 Review
Once again, everything arrived in this lovely cotton drawstring bag! Such a nice bonus!
This is the letter I received in my package this month, detailing the contents. I especially appreciate the detail it provides about the artisans who created this month’s handicrafts. It gives it such a special, personal touch!
Capiz Shell Bowl, Philippines
Look at how beautiful this bowl is! It’s so big, too! I love it! Capiz is the shell of the windowpane oyster, but they do not grow nearly this big, so I don’t know how they craft beautiful pieces like this. This was made by a cooperative of capiz artisans in the Philippines.
This cotton purse is really nice and very well made! It’s also very pretty, and I love that it has so many compartments! It was made by a group in Cambodia that come from impoverished families or families afflicted with AIDS/HIV. That’s very sad, but I am glad that they are able to make a living with their craft.
This month’s third item is “a unique item from either the Philippines or Cambodia.” So, I’m guessing that this item varies from subscriber to subscriber. It’s a woven, stiff little pouch, almost like it is made out of wicker or something. Very cute! I just wish I knew a bit more about it.
The 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 great, but I absolutely love the capiz bowl! I can’t often find values for the items Elevita sends, but I always feel like the value far outstrips the cost of the box. $30 for these lovely items is a steal!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the May box. Order by the 18th to get the current month’s box.
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $30 with free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $10.
