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.

The theme for this box is BAKE. 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.

In line with the theme, they even provided a recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

Everything in the BAKE box!

Here’s a very nice photo to get you in the mood and be excited to use this month’s items!

GlobeIn is committed to empowering artisans around the world, and that’s why they’ve included the artisans’ stories along with each product’s description in the booklet and candid shots or portraits of each artist in their work environment. The booklet includes suggestions to help you maximize the use of each product. The information booklet is a great way to learn about the artisans and communities this subscription has helped to support.

I really appreciate that the items were well packed!

Luna Rica Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar ($1.22) This chocolate peanut butter bar is an organic treat. It contains nut and date, and it is free from gluten and GMO. You can easily break it into smaller pieces, and you don’t even have to feel guilty when it comes to indulging your sweet tooth.

Ceramic Measuring Cup – Tunisia ($18)  It’s a measuring cup ideal for measuring sugar, flour, and other dry goods.

It’s made by the plaster-modelling team of Le Souk Ceramique in Tunisia.

I never thought that a measuring cup could be this gorgeous. It has a charming handpainted design. I love the blue and brown on white ceramic as they pop nicely.

Ceramic Sugar Canister – Morocco ($18) Moroccan ceramics are stunning pieces of artwork and this one warms the heart especially when it was made by an artisan with an interesting background. It’s such a joy to receive items that were made with love.

This sugar canister is great for display too.

I love the details on the body of the canister and the warm tones used!

The sugar canister has a deep interior which means that you can store your sugar to last your daily coffee for a month. The cover ensures that your sugar will remain intact because it will be sealed properly.

And look! My ceramic canister was signed by the artist!

Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons – India ($12) These stainless-steel measuring spoons were made by Dishad Hussaini who has been in the field of metal-craft for more than a decade. It’s amazing!

The spoons come in different sizes, and they’re joined by a ring so you won’t easily lose them. Whether for baking powder, salt, or vanilla, these measuring spoons are useful for baking our favorite treats! Great upgrade for my measuring spoons.

Enamel Mixing Bowl – India ($15) This enamel mixing bowl was crafted by two artisans whose lives have taken a different turn when they joined workshops where they learned handcrafting products such as this.

From the top, you can see the smooth finish on the inside of the mixing bowl. I love the blue color on the border of the bowl as it complements the gray interior.

The exterior is in white. The bowl is ideal for mixing batters and doughs, and even for tossing salads!

Olive Wood French Rolling Pin – Tunisia ($20) Seif Charada, the man behind this olive wood French rolling pin, is a master craftsman who has his own workshop with 20 artisans helping him in producing high-quality handmade products. This an ancient craft that Seif is more than happy to share with the world.

I am amazed by the details on this French rolling pin, because of the wood that was used. You can see the swirls and lines which have been smoothed and perfected for home use. We’ve already put this to use and it works fabulously.

This month’s GlobeIn Artisan Box Club curation is a delight for any baking enthusiast or anyone who loves the kitchen. I like everything because they look great, they’re functional, and they make my kitchen brighter. My favorite is the sugar canister because of its handpainted design and the French rolling pin because it will be really useful for preparing food for the holidays. I also love learning about the stories behind each product, which are always inspiring! As always, I am satisfied with the box and I’m excited to get more artisan items in future boxes!
