Elevita June 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!
Wooden Puzzle, India
This is such a beautiful puzzle! It’s very smooth and has such great craftsmanship. My son and I worked on it together – it’s pretty tough, too! This was hand carved by artisans in India who are part of a nonprofit organization that helps provide employment to the impoverished of the area.
This journal is so pretty! I love it! I love getting little journals and notebooks like this in subscription boxes, I use them all the time. This was made by a family in India that creates journals and paper goods from recycled cotton. This makes the paper super soft and extra strong. They also hand block print the design! Elevita helps them to continue their craft and earn a living wage.
The “Hold Everything Bag”, India
This bag is huge! It’s a hand block printed, quilted cotton tote bag from India. It would make an excellent, stylish diaper bag! I actually received a large makeup bag with the same print from Elevita months ago. Now I am wondering which of my friends or relatives will announce they are expecting next because this would be an amazing gift!
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! 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, including free shipping, is a steal!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the July 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.
