Let’s see what’s inside the April 2019 “Slurp” GlobeIn box!
Everything was shipped in a long pink & white box with the GlobeIn logo on the side.
A peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
Sana Noodle Bowl, Tunisia ($40)
This large stoneware bowl was completely handcrafted by artisans in Nabeul, a city on the Mediterranean coast of Northeastern Tunisia. Its hand-painted honeycomb/seashell design is intended to evoke an air of peace, prosperity, and teamwork embodied by modern Tunisians. The bowl features a small hole on one side, with a notch cut out of the other — the perfect resting spot for a pair of chopsticks.
Hand-Carved Elephant Chopsticks, Kenya ($15)
The ideal utensil to accompany the bowl above, this one-of-a-kind set of chopsticks was hand-carved by Kenyan artisans using jacaranda wood. Each one measures 9.5 inches long and features a carved elephant head at the end.
Here’s a look at the first two items together. — A perfect fit.
Sana Sauce Dish, Tunisia ($12)
Another stoneware piece from Tunisia, this little 4-inch by 4-inch dish is ideal for holding sauces and other condiments. It features the same beautiful colors as in the large bowl and is dishwasher-safe.
Fair Trade Forbidden Rice® Ramen, China ($3.50)
A healthier alternative to most store-bought ramen, this brand features traditional Japanese-style noodles made from heirloom black rice instead of the typical wheat variety. The miso & veggie-based soup is both gluten-free and vegan-friendly!
Amapola Handwoven Blue Basket, Mexico ($15)
These signature baskets are included in many GlobeIn boxes and are woven entirely by hand. Each one can take hours to complete! This particular one is a bit taller than the standard baskets and measures approximately 6″ in diameter by 5″ tall. Use it to store craft supplies, small toys, bathroom essentials, and more.
April’s GlobeIn box featured a collection of beautifully crafted essentials for fans of both ramen and soup in general. My personal favorites this time were the large stoneware bowl, sauce dish, and vegan ramen. — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
April 2019 GlobeIn Review
While not quite as universally appealing as other themes (not everyone enjoys ramen or uses chopsticks), I still enjoyed discovering the unique pieces in April’s “Slurp”-themed box. 🙂
