Friends of Mercy Signature Bag

Friends of Mercy Signature Bag Everything was tucked in this signature bag. This can be used to store shoes when you travel, store electronic cords or any way you want to use it.

Joyn Clutch

Joyn Clutch $26.00 This fabric is handwoven and features a hand block printed pattern and was stitched by hand in India.  I love the pretty pattern and it goes with many of my outfits.


Many of the items in the bag feature a tag and all the artisans who contributed to the bag.

Village Artisan Grecian Temptress Brass Bangles

Village Artisan Grecian Temptress Brass Bangles $9.95 While I normally don’t wear shiny gold, I love these antique gold bracelets.  There is a thicker bracelet and four smaller bracelets and they are crafted in India.


This is the look at the bracelets.

Village Artisan Handmade Soap Box

Village Artisan Handmade Soap Box $13.95:  This cute little box has two handmade soaps from India.  The box is made with 100% cotton, so you can even use this as a gift.


Two were two hand crafted soaps, I believe the scents are Chai India and Lavender Basmati.  Both scents smell great and are rather hard to explain. I love the beautiful box they were packaged in as well.

Love Mercy Bracelet

Love Mercy Bracelet $5.00 The card reads “Tie this bracelet on and pray for girls so far away
Share their story from your heart
When the bracelet naturally falls off one day
You will know you’ve done your part”

There is a little heart on the string.  This is really cute and I am going to wear it with my watch.


There was a little packet of information cards


Final Thought: This box had a total value of $54.90, which was over the cost of the box (with shipping).  I loved everything in the box, especially the bracelets and the bag.  Artisan subscription boxes are some of my favorite boxes.  I would love to get this box on a monthly basis.  You can check out Fair Trade Friday with this link for the monthly or one time bag.  For the Fair Trade Friday Earring subscription, use this link.
