GlobeIn Benefit Box Spoiler for October 2015

GlobeIn is a subscription box that focuses solely on fair trade, global artisans and supporting small collectives of artists. They help bolster dying crafts and make the techniques available to subscribers. It's a really wonderful way of getting access to unique and special products, crafted by specialists in small communities around the world.

The Benefit Basket is a smaller version of the GlobeIn Artisan Basket. For $19.95/month, you'll receive one handmade, fair trade item each month.

The Cost: $19.95/month

What You Get: Each month, you'll receive one delightful handcrafted good nestled inside a GlobeIn signature, handwoven basket.

Here is what you will receive in this month's Benefit Basket:

The October 2015 GlobeIn Benefit Basket will come with a Fair Trade Scarf by Marquet Fair Trade. Colors will vary.
Value: $22

"Your scarf is made in Thailand by the members of the Ton Fai, or “Cotton Tree” artisan group, who weave products on a traditional hand-built loom using 100% locally-grown cotton. Whereas many rural Thai are forced to leave their families and seek work in the city to earn a secondary income, the weavers work on their craft between harvesting and planting season, integrating it into their farming lifestyle. Picture your scarf being woven by neighbors working together against the backdrop of their idyllic mountainside home."

Each Benefit Basket comes with the GlobeIn Signature Handwoven Basket from Mexico. These are handmade from discarded palm leaves using a traditional "tenate" design. These are made by indigenous Oaxacan artisans and are colored by natural, water-based paints.
Value: $12
