My December 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket is here!
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 $40/month (shipping included), or less with multi-month commitments.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.
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 December 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
The familiar dark green & white box.
A peek inside!
As always, a tri-fold info card included a little background on the featured item, as well as a few photos of it “in action”.
GlobeIn Signature Palm Leaf Basket Oaxaca, Mexico ($12) – All GlobeIn Benefit Basket boxes include a handwoven basket made of discarded palm leaves. These are woven entirely by hand and can take hours to complete. I’ve recently started using a few of them to hold my girls’ hair accessories and they’re perfect for the job.
Hand-Crocheted Beanie by Krochet Kids Uganda ($30) – Nestled inside the basket was this month’s featured item — a hand-crocheted beanie! Krochet Kids is an organization that helps to empower women by providing them with jobs and allowing them to pursue education & secure sustainable career paths. Subscribers could have received a beanie in either blush (shown above) or black. Each one is made of 100% acrylic yarn and is hand-signed by the person who made it. Neat!
