This box comes with an info booklet – the first page is a letter explaining the theme. Inside each maker and their products are detailed. There’s also details about the fair trade practices, community support initiatives, etc. – it is a feel-good read!
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket – they’re great for storage!
This month, you could also pick this bandana as a substitute for your basket:
Spotted Bandana, Ghana (Retail $10)
(GlobeIn sent me both for review purposes.)
I love the dot pattern of this bandana fabric! It can be worn as a headband, neck scarf, or maybe even a dog bandana!
Buckles was more than happy to be a part of this photo shoot!
And here we are both wearing GlobeIn:
Wildlife Works Vicki Tee, Kenya (Retail $30)
This shirt is made from 100% cotton, and the sizing runs a little large, so I’d suggest sizing down. More on Wildlife Works:
Welcome to Wildlife Works, where every dollar spent on our products goes directly to job creation and community development in rural communities around the world. That’s right, directly. There’s no middleman or non-profit that the funds go through to get where they are most needed. At Wildlife Works, our mission is clear: to provide people in wildlife-rich areas with sustainable economic alternatives to poaching and deforestation. When you buy a Wildlife Works product, you become an agent for conservation, and are wearing the brand that says you won’t sit quietly while the last wild things in the last wild places disappear forever.
I like the scoop neckline of this tee, too! It’s a little different than your traditional t-shirt.
Foldover Clutch by Tribe Alive, India, (Retail $50)
This might be my favorite item in the box. I love the mix of fabrics. Here is a better look at each side unfolded:
And it is fully lined, too:
This clutch measures 11 by 11 inches when it is unfolded.
Tassel Bag Charm: by Tribe Alive, Honduras, (Retail $10.)
I love the barely-there pink dye on this tassel! Here it is added to the clutch:
I think it would work great on a keychain, too.
Root Collective $50 Gift Code, Guatemala
This box also included a gift code to save $50 off a pair of shoes from Root Collective.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $100 (I’m not counting the gift card since that requires a purchase). I think that’s a great value for a subscription box that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And I love my new clutch! Everything else is cute, too!
