Time to unbox the April 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
If you’re not aware, GlobeIn is a monthly subscription box that features handcrafted goods by artisans around the world. Each month features a new theme with products supplied by various artisans. GlobeIn helps to bring income and exposure to small artists, while introducing you to beautiful pieces of their culture. Many of the products included are eco-friendly, fairly traded, and/or organic. Subscriptions are $35/month (shipping included), or less with multi-month commitments.
In addition to their standard Artisan Box, they also offer a smaller Benefit Basket for just $19.95/month. Every Benefit Basket includes one artisan-made item, along with a handwoven palm leaf basket. — For a limited time, you can save $7 on your first month of a 3-month Benefit Basket subscription when you use coupon code “TRYBENEFIT“.
Let’s see what’s inside the April 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
As with the regular GlobeIn boxes, the Benefit Basket also featured a sticker with wording related to the month’s theme/product.
A peek inside!
The theme for the full-sized April GlobeIn box is “Spring Clean” and it carried on into the Benefit Basket as well — with the featured item being a woven dish towel set from India.
GlobeIn Signature Palm Leaf Basket Oaxaca, Mexico ($12) – As always, the box included a handwoven basket made of discarded palm leaves that can take hours to hand-weave. I’ve amassed quite the collection of these and really need to think of some new uses for them.
The towel set was safely tucked inside of the basket.
Woven Dish Towel Set by Coyuchi India ($15) – I love getting useful household items like dish towels in subscription boxes. Especially when they’re as nice as these ones! Coyuchi, a textile company in India, works exclusively with high quality organic cotton. They partner only with fabric mills and workshops who share their environmental values and sustainability standards. These dish towels are beautifully made and the woven texture makes them super soft to the touch. I’ve gotten organic towels in the past that were a bit stiff, but these are great. 🙂
