Upcycled Sari Fabric Wrap- This is like a furoshiki cloth. You use it to wrap gifts although you don't have to if you wnat to use it for something else. It's really large at 35" x 35" so it has potential to wrap all sorts of presents. It also came with instructions on ways to tie it. Thi is handmade by women in India and made from old saris. It's beautiful and I'm sure you'll be seeing more of mine on the blog.
Value: $4
Handmade Lokta Cards- These are spectacular! The cards are made of handmade paper (my favorite kind!) in Nepal. The paper is made from evergreen shrubs. I love love LOVE the pop-up mountains!! All the lines and swirls are hand drawn! I love these. I don't think I'll be able to give them to anyone because I love them too much. I might have to find a way to frame the mountains one.
Value: $12
ColorBlock Jute Shoulder Tote- This is what I needed when my car blew up yesterday! I had to walk home because I forgot my phone. It was about two miles and my car was FULL of groceries and I wanted to take the perishables with me. I love the size of this and the inner cloth pattern. There are two pockets inside, too. It's a great size. It's also fairly traded and handmade in India.
Value: $18
Maasai Bangles Pair with Upcycled Sari Pouch- Beaded bangles made in Kenya by women earning a living wage. These are durable and heavy! They aren't my style but I know who will love them. The pouch is also pretty and handmade. Love it.
Value: $12
Larabar- Like I said, you get a little of everything in this box! These bars are gluten free, dairy free, non gmo, vegan and a thousand other things. Most importantly for me, they are also soy free! Yay, I can eat them!
Value: $4

Justin's Peanut Butter with Honey- I love Justin's! I've never had the Honey peanut butter either. The chocolate one is to die for. This is made with dry roasted peanuts, honey, palm fruit oil and sea salt. Yum!
Value: $1.50
