HOLIDAY GIFT ALERT: Craft Vogue Website and Product Review

I recently received the opportunity to review a product from CraftVogue. CraftVogue is a site that sells Eco-Crafts. CraftVogue is all about promoting the art and craft of rural India. By promoting the crafts of these artisans, they help these artists gain financial independence. They work with organizations that are also working to better the lives of the rural artisans. Promoting the handmade crafts by these artisans not only allows CraftVogue to sell quality products but it helps the artisans to keep their traditional crafts alive and develop their skills so they can earn a livelihood and lead a better life.

The items sold by CraftVogue are handmade and produced by using eco-friendly raw materials like natural dyes, hand-woven fabric, Bamboo, handmade recycled paper, etc. How fantastic is that? Not only do you get beautiful handmade items but they are safe for the environment and you all know I am all for going green.
I received this beautiful handmade tote bag. It is so cute. The bag is roomy and has a little pocket inside as well. All the animals, people and flowers on the bag are all cut out and stitched by hand. You can't tell in the picture but the people on the bag also have hair that is hand stitched on as well. It is perfect for the beach or just to take shopping. And I stuffed it full of stuff to test the quality and it held up beautifully.

Besides these cool, unique and funky handbags, CraftVogue has a a fantastic variety of gifts. For women they have tons of accessories like scarves, handbags, jewelry and belts. They have gifts for men too. You need to check out some of the ties! They are very beautiful. They also have gifts for your home including handmade table cloths and runners. They have beautiful placemats and wall hangings. And if you really want to go green they have bamboo jewelry and handbags.

The part I like most about this site is that they are helping artisans not only to make money but to keep their traditions alive. And every time you make a purchase, you are making a difference in the lives of these artisans and making the world a little better by supporting products that are environmentally safe.

The site is also very easy to navigate. Checkout is easy. If you are sending packages to loved ones around the country or the world, CraftVogue also offers a gift wrapping and gift note service. This is great so you don't have to send the package yourself!! They even have a order tracking function that makes it easy for you to see what you ordered and when your purchases will arrive.

CraftVogue also offers bulk sales for resellers. And right now all bulk orders are eligible for a 30% flat discount. You can contact info@craftvogue.com for more information. You can also follow CraftVogue on Twitter and Facebook.

This is a fantastic place to get some really nice holiday gifts for loved ones. And as a special added incentive, the first 15 people who comment on this post and tell me they want a discount code will get one for 15% off any purchase. Also, if you spend more than $50, you get free shipping.

So this year give out some unique and special gifts to loved ones and shop at CraftVogue.
