I Heart Handmade #5: November Umba Box

November Umba Box - Basik 855 Pillow

I just realized that it’s November 19th (ummm, what??), and I haven’t shared my Umba Box goodies with you yet!

So, ta-da! This month, I received this beautiful pillow made by Basik 855, a group of Cambodian artisans and weavers who specialize in handwoven ikat accessories. That’s right, I said hand woven! The weavers use traditional looms and techniques to craft pillows, totes, clutches, and more. And the best part? Basik 855 was founded with the purpose of paying each employee a fair-living wage. So you know you’re helping to support fair business practices with each purchase of their amazing accessories.

I’d call that a win-win.
