GlobeIn has released full spoilers of their May 2016 Benefit Basket. The GlobeIn Benefit Basket is a great box for people who love the regular GlobeIn box, but want a bit less. The Benefit Basket contains one crafted good from a remarkable, remote artisan, all in a colorful, handwoven basket from their weaving collective in Oaxaca, Mexico. You will also get story of the artisan, their community, and how you are making an impact on their lives. The Benefit Basket is $19.95/month or $56.95 for 3 months, but you can get $7.00 off your 1 box of a 3 month subscription with the code TRYBENEFIT.
Here are the spoilers for May 2016
Each Benefit Basket will come with:
1) Shibori Scarf by Matr Boomie, India (Retail $25).
All scarves will come in blue tie dye design.
2) GlobeIn Signature Palm Leaf Basket from Oaxaca, Mexico (Retail $12).
Basket designs and colors may vary (i.e. round and square).
Your scarf was created using a traditional Japanese method known as Shibori, a process of dyeing cloth in which stitching, binding, folding, and compressing are used to create the desired geometric and tie-dye patterns. The intricacies of this demanding craft have been passed down through many generations to the women whose hands expertly crafted your new piece.
Your scarfâ€™s soft and lightweight cotton, along with its large long shape make it endlessly versatile and appropriate year-round. Wrap around the neck, or use as a shawl or over-the-shoulder throw. Change it up throughout the day! Hand wash only.
Measurements: 62″ L x 21″ W
In western Rajasthan, India, economic opportunity is scarce. Most residents of this dry desert region rely on crafts, tourism, and mining for their livelihoods. The small group of Muslim women responsible for making your scarf inherited knowledge of its Shibori technique from their mothers and grandmothers.
While they continue the work of past generations, the current generationâ€™s fair trade partnership with Matr Boomie connects them with international markets, setting forth exciting new prospects for economic stability and the future of both their families and their art.
