The items were wrapped in green tissue paper.
Everything was well wrapped and packaged to protect them during shipping.
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 MASQUERADE. 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.
They even featured a Hurricane Cocktail Recipe in the booklet!
At the back cover is a photo of all the items in the box.
Everything in my box!
Hand-Blown Glass With Handle Set – Mexico. I can’t help but admire how they also feature the inspiring stories of the people behind each rare, masterful craft.
Since these items are fragile, they packed them safely in cardboard boxes. This way, any damage would be avoided.
Who would’ve thought that these glass mugs are hand-blown? I bet only talented craftsmen can create such wonderful art pieces.
As sturdy as they may seem, these stein-esque glass mugs were only made for cold beverages, which others might think as a bit of a letdown. Laissez le bon temps roulez, I have other plans for these!
Upcycled Sari Macrame Garland – India. Upcycled saris create beautiful hanging decor. This macrame garland was handcrafted using copper bells and upcycled sari material in assorted colors.
I still can’t decide on where to hang this fabulous garland, because it just stands out anywhere. It emanates a lively, vibrant feeling to anyone that enters the room.
There are also some gold-colored stands. On second thought, I might just place it on the living room wall. It would be a waste not to hang it where everyone can see it.
One side is in orange, the middle is red with stripes, and on the other end is green. The colors are wonderful. These would make a festive decor for a party as well.
Hand-Embroidered Mask – India. Embroidered to perfection, this mask brings life to any masquerade-themed ball, a colorful parade, festival or even in school role plays.
Unlike the usual feathery mask were accustomed to, this one strikes me as an original.
The elastic band stays in place even if you dance all throughout the party.
Handsewn Mini Plush Animal – Sri Lanka. The outer fabric of this plush animal is made from fabric. It’s handsewn and then stuffed with flexible materials, making it soft and cuddly.
We got a plush monkey! It’s so whimsical that it took me back to my childhood days.
The monkey plush toy even has a cute brown tail. It’s carefully sewn that the seam is almost invisible.
Wooden Beaded Necklace Set – India. Adding an accent to your rather boring or mismatched outfit doesn’t have to be too fancy or complicated. Sometimes, all you need is a wooden beaded necklace to save the day.
I’m so glad the statement necklace trend has stuck around because I’m just starting to get the courage to move beyond wearing just simple pendant ones.
I tried pairing these strands of thin beads with thick, experimenting from several loops to one long rope. Either way, they turned out nicely. Even a plain white shirt turns into an outfit with these.
I love Globe In for supporting these artisans and their works. It’s wonderful to see hand-made items that can compete in the market. They should be proud of their crafts because they represent their country and culture and at the same time, inspire others with their heartwarming life stories. My favorite among the items in the box is the handblown glass, but the necklace comes in a close second. All in all, I’m happy because they achieved curating items based on a festive theme. I’m already excited for next month’s box!
