When MADE IN USA meets FAIR TRADE amazing things happen!

Distant Village Packaging is proud to introduce our best value in sustainable packaging – premium-quality boxes under $0.50 each.

These new gift boxes are made in America with beautiful artistic papers from Distant Village – the leader in Fair Trade packaging.


If you need economical sustainable packaging supplies, this blog post is for you.  If you have a small packaging budget, this post is for you too.  This revolutionary new line of sustainable gift boxes cost 200% less, ship four times faster, available in very low minimums and are made in USA.  And the best part of it all is this is all accomplished with no compromise to fair-trade and sustainability.  How is this possible?


After receiving a strong positive response from my previous blog post on the growing demand for ethical packaging supplies, it challenged us to think how we could serve our customers even better.  Ethics and sustainability are increasingly important concerns in all aspects of our client’s business, not just packaging.  For instance, there is a rapidly growing interest by jewelry professionals for ethical and sustainable business practices, and in general, ethics and sustainability continue to grow as a top concern globally.  International attention from the recent Bangladesh clothing tragedy has also drawn global attention to business ethics attracting media coverage from most every news source, including  The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Huffington Post, and The New York Times.

Sustainable and ethical packaging adds value to the consumer experience, but how much?  Custom, or bespoke, packaging for boutique retailers adds value to the customer experience, but how much?  Is it possible to reach the broader market of wholesale packaging needs at a much lower price without compromising ethical and sustainable packaging principles?


So, we challenged ourselves to offer the first world-class ethical and sustainable packaging at significantly lower prices without compromising the core of our mission as a 3BL triple bottom line business.

Custom Bracelet Jewelry Box from Distant Village

Is it possible to produce a sustainable, ethical, beautiful premium-quality gift box for less than .50, and maintain world-leading standards in ethics and sustainability?

This was our challenge at Distant Village, a company with expertise in creating bespoke jewellery boxes costing more than $2.00 or $3.00.

In working with local manufacturers we are extremely proud to announce we have created stunning high-quality economical sustainable packaging for jewelry and gifts, made in USA and soon to be produced locally in Europe also.

These boxes are quite possibly our most impressive sustainable and economical packaging solution ever.

Key Features:

  • Premium Sustainable 2-piece  Rigid Setup Boxes (see image of “Jewelry Box Made in USA with Fair Trade Tree-free Paper”)
  • Available in many sizes
  • Starting under .50 each
  • Low order volumes
  • Made in USA

    I am a start up luxury eco / fairtrade gift box and subscription box business. I am currently looking for some packaging.
    Does your 50 cent jewellery box come in bigger sizes? If so, what are the dimensions, cost and minimum order?
    Kind regards

      Hi Bree,

And the prices are excellent, with costs starting at less than $0.50 up to $1.90 – all prices include the fiber cushion insert. For pricing, email or call us with the quantity desired and the dimensions.
      Thank you!
