Elevita February 2019 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!
Look at how pretty this bracelet is! The cord is rigid, not stretchy. I love the little key charm! I will definitely wear this. This was handmade by an artisan in the Philippines as a means of supporting herself and her young son.
Every time I see a piece with this kind of embroidery and rich colors, I know it’s from Cambodia! I love the deep purple and gold together. I just don’t know what this pouch is for. Any guesses? It says essentials, but it is pretty small for that. This was handmade in Cambodia by a handicapped single mother.
It’s the peg game! I love this game! They have a less finely crafted version of it at every table at Cracker Barrel, and we used to play it on road trips when I was a kid and my family would stop in. I love the design and the impressive quality of this one! The pegs live inside a compartment in the base that is opened by a hinge on the side. My kids instantly dropped their devices and played this thing. I love it! This was handcrafted by disadvantaged woodworkers in India.
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! Still wondering what that pouch is for, though… 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. Thirty dollars for these lovely items is a steal!
