This box comes with an info booklet – the first page is a letter explaining the theme. Inside each maker and their product is detailed. There’s also details about the fair trade practices, community support initiatives, etc. – it is a feel-good read!
Hand-dyed Batik Table Runner by Della (Retail $35).
This piece is 100% cotton and it measures about 13″ by 48″ – here is the flip side:
I like that it is two sided, and the colors are muted so I think they should work with various decors.
Beaded Necklace by Tribe Alive (Retail $42).
This piece works as a necklace or a wrapped bracelet. Here is a closer look at the beads:
And here it is on:
I’m all about black and gold, so this piece is perfect for me. (Also – I didn’t know Tribe Alive had a subscription box!)
A set of two Upcycled Greeting Cards from Malawi (Retail $8). Colors will vary.
I saw the spoilers for these cards, so I knew to expect vibrant colors and patterns, but I didn’t realize these cards are made from repurposed fabrics! The textures of these cards are such a unique surprise!
This chocolate has crunchy caramel bits throughout, and it is organic and fair trade!
Palm Leaf Basket – Value $12
Each box comes with some of the contents packaged in a palm leaf basket. I’m happy to see we’re back to baskets with lids!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $101. I think that’s great for a subscription box that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And GlobeIn is really impressing me with their themes and curation each month! I think my favorite pieces this month are the necklace/bracelet and the tablerunner.
