GlobeIn Benefit Basket – Full October 2015 Spoilers

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

GlobeIn October 2015 Theme

We have the full spoilers for the GlobeIn Benefit Basket subscription for October 2015:

GlobeIn Cozy Spoiler

The October Benefit Basket will come with a Fair Trade Scarf by Marquet (Retail $22).
Colors will vary.

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.

GlobeIn basket

Each Benefit Basket comes with the GlobeIn Signature Handwoven Basket from Mexico ($12).
Colors will vary.

The palm-leaf basket is made using the traditional “tenate” design. Handcrafted from discarded palm leaves by indigenous Oaxacan artisans and colored using natural, water-borne paints, each basket can take up to six hours to weave. These decorative and whimsical baskets make beautiful home storage options, lending a pop of color and handcrafted warmth to children’s bedrooms, bathroom storage, kitchen countertops or as gift packaging for loved ones.

  1. What!?!?! Where is the mug??? That’s actually why I subscribed to this box… I’m actually very disappointed. I guess when I saw the mug spoiler I didn’t understand that it was only a possibility for the box.

    • Did you subscribed to the regular size box or the mini box? The mini box aka The Benefit Basket has the scarf. The regular box aka the artisan box has the mug and scarf as spoilers.

    • Alli, this is just the GlobeIn Basket. The Artisan box has the mug. I was confused at first too =)

      I’m super bummed that I only had a three month subscription to the basket, didn’t really like anything, and now this month I want the scarf and mug! I’ve already subscribed to too many boxes to buy another right now… Sigh.

  2. I know I’m in the minority here, but I’m happy it’s the scarf. The mug wasn’t my taste and the scarf does indeed look cozy -unlike the decorative ones we get in other boxes. 🙂

  3. Part of me wanted two mugs, but I think it’s really generous of them to include the item with the higher retail value (the scarf, $22) in the Benefit Basket. There’s a good chance I’ll get two different colors (since I subscribe to both the Benefit Basket and Artisan Box), and gifting one is always an option with the holidays, winter clothing drives, and so many winter birthdays coming up! Plus, this month’s ceramics are really affordable, so we could always order additional matching pieces.

    • It seems like they usually do include the highest value item in the Benefit basket. 🙂

  4. I am trying to switch from the Benefit Basket to the Artisan Basket because the spoilers look so good!

    The last time I contacted GlobeIn, my email went to spam. GlobeIn, if you are reading this, please check your spam folder! I want in for the full basket!

  5. AWwWWww I was hoping for the MUG! Don’t like scarves at all, so now if I order the other one, I’ll have 2 scarves. Bummed.

  6. I must confess that I was hoping the benefit basket would have one of the mugs – I can use two mugs but not necessarily two scarves. Oh well – Christmas gift!

  7. So a basket and a scarf…that’s it?

    • Only one item is included in the mini basket.

      • Ohhh thanks Anna, I didn’t see it was the Benefit Basket 🙂

        • I get confused too. I was all excited to see the spoilers for the regular box 🙂

          • I’ve done the same thing the last several times– expecting to see full ARTISAN spoilers and wondering if the entire postis a mistake! Glad to see that I’m not alone!!
