GlobeIn has announced three of the items in their November 2015 “Bedroom” box!
The first is a Seahorse Pillow Pet from Guatemala. So cute!
(Retail Value: $22, colors will vary).
Silvia Mazariegos is a tailor and designer that helped pilot Y’abal’s Pillow Pet product line. Recently, Silvia’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease which has already taken the life of her eldest sister. For Silvia and her family, the pillow pet has indeed become a beacon of hope, especially the GlobeIn order of 1000 seahorses that came at just the right time. The whole family has organized to assist Silvia in the effort of cutting, sewing, stuffing, and assembling the pets, the proceeds of which will cover the sister’s costly path back to health.
The second is a Handwoven Bowl by Makaua (Mexico). Love this!
(Retail: $10, colors will vary).
Your bowl is the result of a people tied tightly to a sense of place marrying their innate creativity to nature’s offerings. In the southern mountains of Mexico, this offering is palm, a resource used by the people of the region for centuries. Palm is an incredible natural fiber, flexible enough to weave into intricate designs while still durable and long-lasting. Makaua artisans combine skills inherited from ancestors with their own individual creative visions.
The third spoiler is a Handmade Bud Vase from Ten Thousand Villages.
(Retail Value: $12).
Your bud vase represents new beginnings for Tej Bhadur Prajapati from Nepal. Made with a combination of feldspar and other materials imported from India, your vase is the product of his own unique material and technique. Through his craft, Tej supports the schooling of his two seven year-old twin daughters. Imagine being able to provide for your family while also being the first stoneware leader in your country!
Looks like this is going to be a great box! 😀
