The theme for the upcoming GlobeIn April 2016 Box is… Spring Clean!

More from GlobeIn:

Wake up, Winter Bears!

Our mission this month is to get you geared up (literally) for the big spring clean, and maybe  even…excited for it? For starters, let’s do some re-framing. Forget tedious chore and think sanctified ritual—you certainly wouldn’t be alone in doing so.

In Iran, for example, the March 21st vernal equinox signals the new year, and involves the  tradition of “shaking the house” — use your imagination. And in China, sweeping the house at  the new year is considered a way of sweeping out any bad luck that may have accumulated in the  past one.

No matter where you are in the world, the opening of tiny new buds in spring suggests a chance  to start fresh. We hope the items in this months box help you to invite a sense of spaciousness into the home in which to nurture whatever fragile, fledgling life you find winking and hopeful beneath the pile of last year.

And the first spoiler is:

Fabric Wall Organizer from Peru (Retail Value $30).

In the Sacred Valley of the Peruvian Andes, the village of Wanchaq receives a steady stream of tourists, yet disabled residents of the region find themselves cut off from this line of income, and from society in general.

Unable to use his feet, artisan Freddy Flores sews with one hand and moves the sewing machine pedal with the other. Freddy is a member of ASWAN, an organization dedicated to promoting education, entrepreneurship, and social integration among the disabled of the region. Membership allows Freddy and his fellow artisans the opportunity to exchange ideas and to teach each other new skills.

In the future, ASWAN envisions establishing a rehabilitation center for disabled persons, which would be the first of its kind in the country.

  1. It’s going to organize my paintbrushes and supplies perfectly in the little art corner! I love this…

  2. This will look cute in my daughter’s dorm room. I am going to wait for more spoilers before I commit.

  3. I will definitely be looking for this on swap. My hubby and i are planning a year long journey and will be living out of our truck. I have been looking for something like this to organize my everyday stuff…

  4. It’s super cute, but I have no idea where I would put it since it won’t go with any of my decor. ?

  5. I love this, it’s so cute and lamas <3 as others said, I so need another organizer!!
    However, that said I rent where I live and so we can't put nails up… 🙁
    I've tried using those removable ones(forgot what they're called) but I can't even get a calendar to stay up(it literally fell off after 5 min) so I don't know if i'll be able to use it 🙁

    Any ideas what other non hole making things I could use?

    • maybe some sort of over-the-door hook (kinda like what people use for holiday wreaths) could work? if you used 2 of them? might have to hang it different than shown – just use the 2 outside loops, or make your own loop?

    • Maybe on a pants hanger. I will likely hang this in my closet. I might also clip or pin some items to it.

  6. I think this is so cool! I can hang it by the front door (or even on the door) and use it for keys, hubby’s sunglasses, etc. Since hubby tends to forget things, this is wonderful! We can even use it to store extra doggie poop pick-up bags!

  7. This is very pretty! Much better than last month! (But don’t take that last part wrong, Globin is one of my favorite boxes!)

  8. I love this, and the story behind the artisan is so heartwarming

  9. I’m looking forward to this month – hoping there will be some kind of plant or pot too 🙂
    This isn’t exactly my style, but I know I’ll enjoy it once I get it and will find the perfect place to use it. And I really like the pockets that have the llamas on them 🙂

  10. This is disappointing to me. It’s cute, but the pockets look small and I have nowhere to hang this. I’m glad they have the choice to pick another box or pass.

  11. This is cute!
