Fair Treasure, who kindly sent me this box to review, sends fair trade items such as jewelry, glass wear, pottery and paper goods, to your door each month. Their goal is to make it easier for everyone to explore the very best that Fair Trade products have to offer… and in turn, providing exposure and supporting the communities of people making these treasures.
FAIR Treasure ships via USPS and, as always, took only a few days to arrive. FAIR Treasure always ships in a timely manner and is always nicely packaged.
I couldn’t tell what anything was from the first look. I had some guesses, but I wasn’t sure on anything.
The July 2014 FAIR Treasure theme was “Travel-Bug Bitten” and included a few items to equip subscribers to embrace the spontaneity of summer. Here is what was inside:
~World Finds Color Block Scarf / Sarong ($18): These scarves are handmade by women artisans in Agra, India. They receive a living wage, have safe working conditions, access to healthcare and childcare and receive on-going training and education. I think it will work better for me as a scarf than as a sarong, but that’s fine because scarves are more me anyway.
~Zen Zen Garden and Home Cosmetic Case / Clutch ($20): I pulled this out of the box kind of thinking it was a straw hat. Happily, it was not! It’s a very cute and well made palm leaf pouch. I’ll probably use it as a cosmetics case, but it’s fancy enough to use as a clutch too.
All totaled I came up with a value of $38 for the July 2014 FAIR treasure box. I liked the picks this month and think they nailed the theme this month!
