Let’s see what’s inside the December 2019 “Feast” GlobeIn box!
Everything was shipped in a square pink & white box with the GlobeIn logo on the side.
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.
Cookable Tagine – Haqima, Morocco ($50)
This large cookable tagine is made of food-safe ceramic and was handcrafted by a group of skilled Moroccan artisans. It features a hand-painted black & white design on both the base and lid. While the piece itself is beautifully made, I’m not so sure I would personally use it for cooking. It seems like a slow process and I’m all about (close to) instant gratification when it comes to food. 😉 Also, I wish GlobeIn would have provided some basic guidelines/tips on how to correctly use the piece. Sure, it’s easy enough to Google it, but a printed guide would have been helpful too.
Small Spice Box with Spoon, India ($30)
While I’m not going to use this for its intended purpose, I love this little spice box! Handcrafted out of mango wood, the box features a hinged lid that opens up to reveal four small removable compartments and a tiny wooden spoon. It measures roughly 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 2″ and is the perfect size for your favorite spices, trinkets, or other small treasures.
Grassland Table Runner, India ($35)
This green and gold/beige table runner was woven by a team of women artisans in a remote village of India. It’s constructed of madur grass, whose dyed blades(?) are met in the middle to form an almost faux ombre look. The runner measures 13″ by 43″ and is an easy way to add a little color to an otherwise naked table. 😉
Elephant Serving Spoon, Kenya ($18)
It’s a little hard to tell by the photos above, but this spoon is quite large — at almost 12 inches long. It’s made from olive wood and features a hand-carved elephant at the top of the handle. The info booklet states that it should be hand-washed and oiled after each use.
December’s “Feast” themed GlobeIn box actually arrived after January’s box, which was a bit strange. However, I’m happy it showed up because I love that Wooden Spice Box! 😉 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
