Elevita November 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!
What a unique trivet! It’s made of seed pods! Wow! This was made in the Philippines by an elderly couple. The husband is new to this handicraft, but he joined his wife after he became too old for the tough physical labor of construction work. They slice the seed pods and then weave them together. It’s so cool looking!
It’s a dried gourd! Another really unusual inclusion in this month’s box! It’s beautiful, though. It was hand painted by artisans in Peru.
Elevita usually features beadwork from one particular artisan from the Philippines every month, so I was surprised to see a different artisan featured this month! I am glad they are sharing the wealth. I love the combination of gunmetal and pearl on this necklace! It’s really pretty!
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!
