Whitewashed Terracotta Llama Planter, Bangladesh
Okay, how adorable is this terracotta llama planter?! — I love him! 😀 The absolutely charming piece was designed and handcrafted by a talented team of Bangladesh-based female artisans. CORR The Jute Works, a women’s nonprofit and handicraft exporter, employs the women giving them access to a fair wage, healthcare, education, and alleviation from exploitation and domestic abuse. The (very heavy!) planter measures roughly 9 inches high by 6.7 inches long by 5.7 inches wide. It comes complete with a built-in drainage hole and is ready to house your favorite plant(s). 🙂
Indoor/Outdoor Tealight Lantern – Garden Party, India
Thanks to subscription boxes, I’ve found myself with a nice little collection of tealight lanterns — and I love every one of them. The pretty blue lantern above was handcrafted in India using stainless steel and enamel paint. It has a built-in handle for hanging and a twist-off bottom to hold a battery-operated candle. The lantern measures roughly 5.75 inches high and 5 inches in diameter.
Blue Pottery Herb Marker, India
The craft of blue pottery has been passed down for generations in Rajasthan and is considered to be a mystical trade because it incorporates five vital elements: air, fire, earth, water, and ether. The herb marker above features a geometric design inspired by regional flora and fauna. It measures roughly 5 1/2 inches long by 1 inch wide.
The January 2022 GlobeIn “Bud II Box” included a fun collection of handcrafted garden-themed pieces. My favorite items were the adorable Whitewashed Terracotta Llama Planter and Indoor/Outdoor Tealight Lantern. So cute! 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 50% on your first box with coupon code ARTISAN50!
