Time to check out the July 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 July 2016 GlobeIn Benefit Basket!
It looks like the box got a little beat up this month, but thankfully the contents were totally unharmed.
A peek inside. Once again, the square sticker that would usually be on the outside of the box was placed on the inside lid.
A tri-fold info card included a little background on this month’s featured item, as well as a few photos of it “in action”.
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 think I have about a dozen of these now. 😉
July’s featured item was securely wrapped up and tucked inside the basket.
Hebron Glass Hand-Painted Heart Dish Palestinian Territories ($15) – This pretty heart-shaped dish was crafted by Hebron Glass, a family company employing 60 artisans who are all given a fair wage for their work. It features a traditional hand-painted floral design which has been prominent throughout the Palestinian culture for thousands of years. The plate is made of ceramic and measures roughly 5 inches long. It can be used to hold food, as a catchall for jewelry, or just as a pretty display piece.
