I was contacted by GlobeIn to check out their 'Refresh' box, which is sold individually or as a part of a subscription box service. I normally do not partake in subscription box services, but after checking out their website and the concept, I was completely drawn to it! It is a unique take on monthly boxes and I think a wonderful concept to include pieces from independent artisans around the world.
The Refresh box is a box containing "spa" like items, for personal beauty and home use - a handmade soap, hemp woven washcloth, candle, teas, and a shampoo... all inside the signature GlobeIn woven palm leaf basket.
The assortment of items in the Refresh box was great, and I will enjoy getting use out of all of them - I'm a huge tea drinker, I love home decor and beauty items, so it was a great fit for me. I also liked how the GlobeIn box included a card with the information about the independent artisans that made the items within the box. In my GlobeIn box, the items came from:
- Palm Leaf Basket made by Martina Garcia, Oaxaca, Mexico
- Shea Shampoo handmade in Togo, West Africa
- Hand-painted candle handmade in Napier, South Africa
- Yerba Mate Tea hand harvested in the South American Atlantic Rainforest
- Dead Sea Mud Soap handmade by Sindyanna in Northern Israel
- Natural Hemp Washcloth handmade in Bagdha, Bangladesh
I think this is such a wonderful concept to be connected with things outside of our local circle and a great way to support artisans from around the globe!
