In 2016, Global Goods retailer Chioma Amegashie knew she had to make a change to weather the “retail apocalypse” so she made a bold move by transforming her almost 10-year-old online store into a bimonthly subscription box model. MOSAIC Box caters specifically to the professional, well-traveled, busy woman on the hunt for premium artisanal products. Amegashie personally curates the collections through her world travels to places like Guatemala—where she loves the local beadwork and embroidery—and Spain, where high-quality leather can be found. Each box is themed, often by color, and features three to five authentic and handcrafted items such as scarves from Thailand, stationery from the U.K. or woven home accents from Rwanda. For Amegashie, a 22-year veteran of the retail industry, her business is “all about the art of discovery.” And she affirms “everything from MOSAIC tells a story and commands attention because it’s a statement piece.” Traveling vicariously through the box is part of the joy. –
