1) Olive Wood Spatula by Le Souk Olivique from Tunisia (Retail $10).

Le Souk Olivique, a Tunisian wood-working studio is responsible for creating both your spatula and wood spreader (see below), and for generally being a saving grace to young Tunisian artisans affected by a failing economy. The 2007 world financial crisis lead to the closure of many Tunisian textile factories that exported to the European market. Mouna Maamouri, age 36, worked in a textile factory that shut down, compromising her and her husband’s ability to provide for their four children.

Enter Le Souk. The company hired Mouna in 2014 to help with the process of oiling wooden kitchen implements, such as your spatula. After the piece has been cut and sanded, Mouna dunks it into a tub of Le Souk’s special finishing oil made of mineral oil, paraffin wax, and beeswax. Ahh how smooth it feels, family life dunked in the warm hug of financial stability.

Suggested use: Pancakes…flip em!

2) Olive Wood Spreader by Le Souk Olivique from Tunisia (Retail $7).

Your olive wood spreader is hand carved by Tarik Tlili, who joined Le Souk in 2013, after he lost his job at a furniture factory in Nabeul in 2013 when the factory shut down (sadly, not a unique story in post-revolution Tunisia).

Particularly deft at using the machinery to create curves and round pieces, Tarek’s steady hand is responsible for your new knife’s delicate slope. Meanwhile, his alliance with Le Souk has carved a quiet prosperity into his and his family’s future.

Suggested use: Spread something soft and delicious onto something warm and crisp…

And here is the first spoiler:

The Argan Project Amlou Argan Almond Butter

From GlobeIn:

Imagine a potent oil, packed with rich stores of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, delivering substantial health and beauty benefits, especially to the skin. The oil pools inside tiny kernels deep inside the fruit of a tree whose deep roots stretch into the soil of southwestern Morocco.   

 
Meet the argan tree and its oil, argan oil. Meet Arganams, a women’s cooperative in the small town of Amskroude dedicated since 2012 to a twofold purpose: organizing within a shared production facility to improve their economic prospects and sharing the secrets of argan oil with the world.   
 
Meet Fatima, the eldest woman working with the co-op. Illiterate and innumerate,   Fatima does not know her exact age, but she knows intimately the 20-hour process of sustainably harvesting the argan fruits, then roasting and pressing their kernels for the rich, nutty oil. Having grown up with brothers and working as a shepherd, Fatima is grateful to have the opportunity to spend her day in the company of other women.  
 
Suggested use: Meet your very own jar of argan almond oil. Say hello to it on a piece of hearty toast topped with a fruit of your choice.

  1. Awww I think I’m going to swap this month. I make my own Vitamix nut butters and have lots of wooden spoons. Also use Nespresso so loose coffee not for me either. Sad but looks like nice quality items and looking forward to next month.
    Does anybody know if they still offer the blue and green seahorse pillow pet they sent in the Bedroom box? I see you can purchase them in their shop, but the “green and blue” looks more olive and different from the one I received.

    • It might still be early enough to get a different box. They are doing a thing now where if you aren’t interested in the theme/items of the current box you can pick from certain prior boxes. I don’t know if bedroom is one of the options this month, though.

      • I asked globein about the time window for picking a box (they r having shipping issues w the cozy box, it’s just now going to ship out (January box) but they’re sending a free gift in it as well so good cs!!). It’s should open anywhere from a couple days before the next month to the first week of this month. I believe it opened the first!
        Also I’m not positive but I think the bedroom box was a pick cause I remember not wanting the seahorse pillow.
        I am hoping they have more of a variety of boxes to choose from in the future, the last box, bedroom box and the laundry box seem to be available everymonth. While I like being able to get the previous box I want a chance at more past ones!
        Oops, sorry this got so long!

  2. No nuts for me so I’m picking a different theme.. so cool that we can do that now!

  3. Love olive wood!

  4. Super excited for this! Just absolutely LOVE GlobeIn and honestly can’t say enough good things about them! Products and customer service are amazing!!

  5. Already so excited for this box – GlobeIn is one of the consistently great boxes out there. They’re so thoughtful about their themes and contents.

  6. If I could marry a subscription box it would be Globein.

  7. I was going to get a past box, but this spoiler made me change my mind. We both saw this and wanted them more than a new towel 😉
    (FYI I’m on a locard(how does auto correct think that’s close to locked?) in 6 month plan on my 2nd month now and I’m glad I rejoined!)

  8. wonderful!!!!

  9. Love these! They will go beautifully with the Luxe Provence olive wood board someone special sent me as an extra in a swap!

  10. love the spatulas

  11. I think I’ll be selecting one of the alternate boxes this month.

  12. Niiiiiice!

    I am at a loss as to what will be in the Benefit basket, though. I think it’s usually the first spoiler, but I really hope it’s these utensils!! (Or perhaps an unknown third or fourth item??)

  13. ::swoon::
