The boxes for June are: "Al Fresco" and "Refresh".
FYI: GlobeIn has increased their price from $40/month to $55 month. GlobeIn says, "This is a necessary change that will directly support our mission to empower remote artisans around the world through job creation and fair wages." Subscribers were able to lock in the old price before May 31st.
This is the "Refresh" box.
The info booklet gives you details of each item in the box and stories of the artisans who make them.
Kikoi Blanket (Kenya)
This 100% cotton lightweight blanket measures 60" x 39". Kikoi means "wrap" in Swahili and has been traditionally used with great versatility. Use it as a towel, blanket, or sarong-style cover-up at the beach, pool, or spa. I like the summery colours.
Sun Hat (Mexico)
I don't think sun hats are for everyone, but I love this one...and so did my 5-year-old. This hat was woven from the leaves of dried palms into its full SPF glory by GlobeIn's friends in Oaxaca. Because buyers in Oaxaca are acclimated to low prices, and weavers are timid to ask for more, GlobeIn paid double what it usually makes per hat and in doing so encourages the artisans to value their work and demand a fair price.
The hat is very well made and comes with a neck string.
Moroccan Tea Glass (Morocco)
This glass is so gorgeous! I love the beautiful jewel green and gold. It's hand blown from recycled glass and hand-painted. Fill it with tea, water, wine, coffee, or juice - or as a candle holder. Subscribers received various colours.
Numi Moroccan Mint Tea (North Africa)
To go with the Moroccan Tea Glass we have Moroccan Mint Tea. This organic Moroccan Mint, known as "nana mint", flourishes in North Africa. With a light and lively flavour, it has a sweet spearmint taste that is refreshing any time of day. It's great served hot or iced.
This month's GlobeIn Artisan Box “Refresh” has a total value of $75. I really enjoyed this theme and loved the items in this box! Whether it's been a hard day in the sun or a long drive, this box has things that will help you feel refreshed. I can't decide what I love more, the hat, the blanket, or the Moroccan tea glass...I guess I don't need to have a favourite because they're all great! As I mentioned in the "Al Fresco" review, the price increase is quite high, so you're better off going with a long-term subscription. Time to make some mint tea!
