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 January 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.
The theme for January’s box was “Bathe” and included an Atlas Pestemal Bath Towel made in Turkey. The info card explained more about the company behind it and how their artisans practice traditional methods passed down from generations before them.
The reverse side of the info card/booklet featured photos of the towel in use.
Atlas Pestemal Bath Towel Turkey ($25) – Subscribers could receive a variety of different colored towels and I was psyched to see that I got a pink one! Such a pretty color. This bath towel measures 39 x 67 inches and features tassels around the top and bottom edges. It’s made of 100% cotton and is said to be super absorbent. It also dries faster than a regular towel and folds up to a nice compact size. The towel is made on a traditional loom and each tassel is created by hand.
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. This one features a pinkish/reddish/orange color scheme.
January’s GlobeIn Benefit Basket was one of my favorites thus far! I love the beautiful towel and am stoked to have gotten it in pink. So pretty!
