Q: How do the recipients know where their box of the month is from? I bought my mom a 3 month gift set and she got her first one today. She got three nice items that were very cute but there wasn’t a note or card or anything that said where the items were from. Would be great if there was some way to do so I’m the future! Asked by Rebekah H., October 2019

Wanderkarma answered...October 2021

Hi Rebekah, you are to get a description and guide to the country, and background of the product. I am not sure how this got missed in your shipment, but we will email you the guide and send it in your next box. We apologize for this confusion.

Q: Is there a list of countries included? My granddaughter has been to Japan and Indonesia recently and I hope at least one box will be from one of those countries.Asked by Liz F., September 2019

Wanderkarma answered...October 2021

Hi Liz,
Our countries follow a journey as we travel to this country. We did have Japan boxes in the past, but we are currently sold out. We have available Rwanda, Haiti, Colombia, and current box is San Francisco. We do not reveal our next month often, but it will be Mexico!

I just got my first of 3 boxes. The packaging was great and shipped fast. Inside, there was a motel-room-sized package of ground coffee and 3 beaded string jewelry items. Overall I would estimate the retail value of this box to be around $20, 30 max, which is less than the cost at about $50 per box plus shipping. The jewelry is pretty far outside of my personal style, so i will likely gift all of it away. Given that the objective of this subscription box is to support artisans, I'm not mad. I just wish there was maybe a little more variety. Looking forward to seeing what the next boxes bring!

If I could only have one sub box? This 1

Every time I think Wanderkarma can't top the last box.... IT DOES!
Japan was an absolute treasure of things I will use non-stop and just made me so happy! The sake cups, the chop sticks (I've just recently started to make sushi rolls so the timing couldn't have been better!).
I just extended my subscription to a full year because this box is such a complete delight month after month!

Hi Danielle, We absolutely apologize for this happening. We will refund you money for the loss or product. We sent a direct email to you. Our mission is to do the lightest footprint on the planet - so we do not over package our items - sometimes with handmade items, this causes an issue. Also, our artisans do not have access to the packaging we have in the United States, which we do not force them to. So we ship the product as they see fit as an artisan. I hope you can understand we do our best to give our artisans autonomy and minimize the environmental impact we have. We will look at the environmental...

I loved the San Francisco Box! So great you are supporting local artisans during Covid-19 and so kind to donate 10% of your profits :)
I also loved last month’s Paris box! Can’t wait to see what’s coming this month 😊

I love everything about this concept! What a great way to support local artisans, give back to communities/causes, and expose people to cultures they may not otherwise experience. It’s obvious that they put great care into choosing unique and meaningful items. Such a treat to “travel” to new places each month, especially now when we can’t actually do so.

Lovely San Francisco Treasure Box

I love the concept behind this monthly subscription box! Each box supports three local artists from different places from around the world, and a percentage of the profit is donated to charity. The box also contains travel tips for each destination, and a bio on the artists inside. You can tell a lot of thought goes into the entire curation of the box to illustrate a story. I am very happy with the San Francisco box. It came with some chocolates, a beautiful pair of handmade earrings, candle, and a stunning watercolor of a classic victorian home! It would make a great gift because it comes wrapped and ships direct. Looking forward to seeing where the box will take us next month!

Super disappointed in this box... Not at all worth $43 dollars. As you can see from my picture, no way would anyone spend $43 for what was received. I received a print, earrings that I thought were kinda ugly (didn’t like the bone looking ends), and a candle. I soooo love the idea of this and I hope the seller puts some more time into curation and value as I think this could be successful with better items! Good luck

Hi Juliana,
We apologize that you do not like this box. We represent a place to the best of our ability, and pay fair prices to the artist's handmade work. This box has a retail value of over $60.
- Earrings made in SF and sold by artist at Retail $36
- Candles handmade in a local shop here $12
- AB Draws the Line handdrawn and watercolor print sells for $12
We also donate 10% of the proceeds to a new cause every month with Black Lives Matter this month.
Everyone appreciates the values in the box differently, and we try to please most customers. As you can see from our prior box - we do our best to put...
