The GlobeIn Artisan Box "Refresh"Monday, March 30, 2015
My GlobeIn Artisan Box arrived!
The GlobeIn Artisan Box is a monthly subscription box. Each month, GlobeIn delivers “the globe in a box” - a themed collection of artisan-made products from around the world. GlobeIn introduces you to products that you can feel good about - they are often organic, fair-trade, and support artisans and farmers from around the world.
This is GlobeIn's Refresh Box, featuring natural skincare and other handmade items such as:
- Dead Sea Mud Soap Handmade in the Galilee Region, Northern Israel.
- Natural Hemp Washcloth Hand Woven in Bagdha, Bangladesh.
- Hand-Painted Candle Handmade in Napier, South Africa.
- Yerba Mate Tea Hand Harvested in the South American Atlantic Rainforest.
- Shea Shampoo Handmade in Togo, West Africa.
- Palm Leaf Basket Handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Clearly, it was an exciting day at the post office. I couldn't wait to tear open the box and examine all the little treasures.
Each Artisan Box comes with a card full of information about each product, it's country of origin and how it was made or harvested.
I will forever find it fascinating, to learn more about what other people are up to, all around the globe.
Here's the hand-painted candle from South Africa, it's mind-blowing to think about how far some things have traveled, before finding their resting place in your home.
I'm loving this hand-crocheted hemp washcloth, it's woven beautifully and very well made. Actually this washcloth was the main reason I chose the Refresh Box.
GlobeIn sent me this box complimentary, and they were kind enough to let me choose which Artisan box to try out, since they offer multiple options.
I'm not usually into subscription boxes, ever hear me doing videos on them? Nope. Wait, except that one bad experience with Glossy Box a couple years ago lol. But GlobeIn definitely sounded more like me and worth checking out. Plus they have an online marketplace with handmade items from around the world! I've spent some time browsing their marketplace. I love reading about the artisans, where they live, and how they make their handcrafted items.
If you want to learn more about their monthly Artisan Box subscription and the different options they offer, visit their website here.
They also created a coupon code especially for you guys, use code "Christine" for 25% OFF a 3+ month box subscription or gift purchase.
Bottom line: Will I purchase an Artisan box subscription?
I want to... And of course it would be totally awesome to share cool and unusual handcrafted items in a video every month. But the fact is, I should probably finish paying off my Invisalign bill first lol. Subscription boxes are a luxury. I mean, it's like sending yourself a surprise gift every month right? I think it's a fabulous idea to treat yourself, whenever it's in your budget. In fact, Artisan boxes would actually make really great gifts. I definitely love the concept of supporting artisans and trying out items from all over the world. So we'll see what the future holds.
Do you have any box subscriptions? Have you tried any in the past? If so, which ones? Have you heard of GlobeIn? Do their Artisan Boxes sound like a cool idea to you? I would love to hear your thoughts!
