The theme for this box is FRESHEN. Artisan Box subscribers have a selection of themes from which to choose. This way, artisans will be able to meet GlobeIn’s needs while also having longer, steady work as they continue to produce items for the Artisan Box.

Along with all of the lovely items in the box, the Artisan Box includes a booklet that gives details about each of the artists responsible for the items in the box.

Everything in the FRESHEN box! 

Tissue Box Cover – Mexico ($12) This tissue box cover was handwoven, using palm leaves as the main material.

The design brings a “folkloric” vibe to an otherwise mundane item.

It takes great skills and hard work to make such an intricate product. Kudos to the weavers in Oaxaca! I love the pattern and great color scheme.

Woven Hand Towel – India ($15) This towel was weaved in Kaipur using power looms. It feels soft on the skin but it has a nice texture for really getting into it.

Its size makes it a nice towel for the bathroom. You can also use it in the kitchen if you wish. With a great neutral color this one would go anywhere in my home.

Malika Toothbrush Cup – Tunisia ($18) This cup was beautifully hand-painted by a worker from Le Souk Ceramique. This and the next item match some of the most popular items sent out by GlobeIn – true subscriber faves!

Made from ceramic, which is basically clay that was hardened by heat, it has the Le Soul mark in the bottom.

The Mediterranean design looks so beautiful!

Malika Soap Dish – Tunisia ($18) Bearing the same Mediterranean pattern as the cup is this ceramic soap dish.

Our soaps will now have a new place to rest!


I love the cohesive color scheme this month and really appreciated receiving items that matched precious goods. This month’s total box value is $63. GlobeIn always sends high-quality products and the fact that these are made by artisans and collectives that have a true impact make it even more special. Such a great subscription for anyone who appreciates artisan products!
