New Products at Elevita.com

We have several new products in our online boutique that we are pleased to introduce.  The first two are a result of our partnership with the Support Foundation in Uttar Pradesh, India.  The Support Foundation works with people who suffer from mental and physical disabilities. They provide a bridge between these stigmatized students and society by providing vocational and leadership training to help these students create dignified and self-sufficient vocations and lives. 

1. A lovely set of stationery with hand blocked-printed designs on quality handmade paper. Papers measure 6x8" and there are 10 pages and 10 envelopes per set.

2. A set of two notebooks with hand bock-printed covers on quality handmade paper.  Each book measures 4x6" and contains 30 pages each. 

From a new enterprise Elevita has helped start in the Philippines come these beautiful capiz shell bowls. Elevita's Capiz Shell Enterprise is helping provide work and school opportunities for about 20 artisans in need.

Nina Mena is a mother of nine children, a widow, and has only a 6th grade education.  She is also very talented, hardworking, and persevering and has been able to send all of her children to school.  Most of her children are married now but two families are currently living with her.  Nina makes these beautiful hand-crocheted table runners for Elevita to help support the next generation.

Elevita is honored to support these extraordinary artisans and their enterprises.  These are all beautifully made products and make lovely gifts for any occasion.
