GlobeIn Artisan Box Review August 2018

GlobeIn Artisan Box is a monthly subscription box featuring favorite products from global artisans. Each box is curated around a monthly theme selected by the editor with the aim of helping you experience new and interesting products and cultures. They kindly sent us this box for review.

GlobeIn Artisan Box is one of my favourite boxes when it comes to artisan products. The items we receive each month are absolutely gorgeous……really they are. I love that each one is handmade by a global artisan and that they curate each box around a theme.

Ceramic Olive Boat, Tunisia (Retail $25 each)
  • Measurements: 14.5″ x 1.5″
  • Materials: Ceramic

First up we have a Ceramic Olive Boat. I am a huge fan of any/all the ceramic pieces that GlobeIn curates and this piece is no exception. Use it for olives, cheese, baguettes or even dipping sauces. It would make a gorgeous centrepiece.

Swirl Olive Spoon, India (Retail $10 each)
  • Measurements: 8″
  • Materials: Stainless Steel

Here we have the perfect complement to our Olive Boat. You never know how handy a spoon like this is until you are trying to fish out the olives or tiny pickles from the bottom of the jar. Pair it with your new Olive Boat.

Palm Leaf Placemat Set, Mexico (Retail $15)
  • Includes: Set of orange and blue
  • Measurements: 12″ Diameter

Each month we receive some sort of palm leaf product (the baskets are my favourite) and this month we received it in the form of placemats. Use during meals for crumb management or in between meals as table decor.

Tatreez Napkin Ring Set, Palestinian Territories (Retail $10)
  • Includes: Set of orange and blue
  • Materials: Cotton

Here we have a set of napkin rings that match our new placemats perfectly. The perfect way to style the next item in the box……

Block Printed Napkin Set, India (Retail $10 each)

  • Measurements: 9″ x 14″ (per napkin)

A napkin set rounds out the box perfectly. Now we have a complete set for two. Placemats, napkin rings and napkins.

GlobeIn Artisan Box Review August 2018 – Final Thoughts

The August GlobeIn Artisan Box has a really lovely theme, one that is near and dear to my heart. I love anything to do with the home, more specifically the kitchen. I am in nesting mode and every spare moment of the day is spent at the kitchen counter – prepping, canning, freezing, baking, etc. Therefore I love the fact that I received 2 new place settings, perfect for the fiancé and I, as well as some gorgeous new serving pieces. GlobeIn always puts together a wonderful box full of gorgeous handmade items.
