This month’s theme is “Chef”. The items inside the box are all perfect for the kitchen, or for using throughout your home.
Mortar and Pestle – Listed Value $20.00
For being made of wood, this mortar and pestle are really solid and hefty. The bowl is about 4ish inches wide, so it’s not quite so big as an actual bowl. The pestle is smooth and shaped in a way that makes it really comfortable to hold and work with your hand. I can’t wait to grind up some herbs with this before sprinkling them on veggies to roast!
Woven Basket/Napkin Holder – Listed Value $8.00
This basket is so cute! I love the green color—it reminds me of the color of dried oregano. This shallow dish is just big enough to fit the large, square paper napkins you can buy at the grocery store. It’s a bit flexible and super lightweight, so it’s perfect for light tasks like napkins. The photo on the front of the booklet shows the basket being used for eggs, which is a cute idea that I really like (it makes fresh eggs way easier to access in the fridge than keeping them in cartons, and if you like hardboiled eggs, this would be a cute way to present them at brunch). But I would say to use caution when carrying this softer basket since I could see it bowing and letting eggs spill out. I’d also be cautious about keeping fruit or veggies in this basket since I’d worry any juice could potentially stain the grass.
Ceramic Berber Bowl – Listed Value $30.00
This bowl is closer to being a serving bowl or smaller-sized fruit bowl than a bowl for a single person. That said, it’d be perfect for nights I wanted to chow down on a big salad or if I’m in the mood for a huge bowl of soup or ramen. The colors of the bowl are warm and clearly hand-painted. And the bowl itself feels rustic, hefty, and solid. It has some uneven bits and some “errors” in its finish, but to me, that’s just a mark of its handcrafted nature.
Tatreez Apron – Listed Value $25.00
This apron is made from a cotton-poly blend that looks like denim but feels soft and sturdy. Its texture and weight remind me most of the slipcover of a couch. It’s comfortable to wear and seems tough enough to withstand wash after wash. I love that there’s a pocket, too. It’s perfect for keeping a spare rag, or your phone (if like me, your kitchen timer has been fully replaced with the timer app on your phone).
Verdict: I really liked this GlobeIn Artisan Box! For $40.00, I got about $83.00 worth of unique products from artisans around the world. I felt like this is a great value for a home decor box, if simply because the value of all of the products seemed very fair given their awesome quality. I can’t wait to show these items off!
