Elevita July 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!
Hematite Bracelet, Philippines
I have received several pieces from this artisan through Elevita, nearly every month. This is the first time I have ever received a hematite piece from her, though, and I really like it! It’s very shiny and pretty. She is a single mother and is supported in large part by her work with Elevita.
Batik Basket, Ghana
I can’t believe this fabric basket was hand-batiked! It’s so beautiful! I can think of about a hundred good uses for this, too. It’s about 3″ high and 4″x4″ high/wide. This was made by a collective of women in Cape Coast who have organized to earn a living wage.
Picture Frame, India
This picture frame is so pretty! You don’t often see picture frames in subscription boxes, but I think this is awesome. I’m happy to have it! This was crafted in India by a nonprofit organization of artisans who, while committed to quality, suffer from handicaps, extreme poverty, and other disadvantages.
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 is a steal!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the August 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.
