Our Current Artisan Box: Undiscovered Mexico
Dedicated to the art of travel our latest box will have you shouting unapologetically – amo México. Here you’ll discover a vast and complex land where 3,000 years of sophisticated indigenous civilizations have morphed into a magical, multicultural nation. Vibrant handmade artisan treasures await your discovery. From anthropomorphic sculptures and sumptuous textiles, to intricate silver jewelry and hand-tooled leathers, these traditional works attest to the central role that folk art continues to play in Mexico’s daily life. In Guanajuato you’ll meet Jean Luis and Fatima Contreras, your artisan guides, who will introduce you to the unique designs and vibrant glazes that characterize the Talavera-style ceramics created in their family workshop.
A last-minute night out, an unexpected excursion, an invitation to a family gathering – these are the serendipitous events that can’t be captured in a guide book. A sense of wonder and discovery is what UNDISCOVERED is all about.

I love the whole concept of the box and the choice of each product! Also, product quality is amazing and the mission of empowering artisans makes it a win-win -- plus each product is easily re-giftable as all of the products come individually gift wrapped. Such a great deal!

I am totally blown away by this gift. Everything arrived exquisitely wrapped – made me feel so loved! It was a delight to open each of the treasures inside. I’m impressed with the great care and workmanship that went into each creation, including all the extra details. I’m already anticipating next season’s Box – can’t wait to find out what’s inside. Such a beautiful, unforgettable gift to receive.

I adore every one [Undiscovered Box]. It’s such a good feeling supporting these talented artisans too. The workmanship is like nothing you’ll find in stores.

If you’ve missed traveling to international destinations for the past couple of years, especially the part where you discover and bring home authentic gems and souvenirs, then this is the subscription box for you.
Renee Blodgett, WBTW Transformative Travel
Two thumbs up. This is a gem you won’t want to miss… each box offers a unique exploration of a new region led by an Artisan Guide who in turn offers insider tips, behind-the-scenes stories and special recipes from the undiscovered.

For the person who likes to travel… There’s a big difference between traveling and vacationing, IMHO. Vacationing is sitting on the beach and never leaving the resort, while traveling is having a tight itinerary filled with exploring and learning more about wherever you’ve landed. If they’re into the latter, an Undiscovered Artisan Box will help them learn about new cultures from the comfort of their own home.

Subscription boxes are always fun and there is a new one that is great for those of us who have wanderlust in our hearts. Novica Undiscovered… a wonderful way to discover new things…. It arrives gift wrapped for a wonderful first impression and everything inside was lovely.
