I was very excited to receive my GlobeIn box. My husband and I did a lot of traveling before we had kids (7 years ago!), and I absolutely miss it. The things we collected from places like Ecuador and Mexico are displayed proudly in my house, and hold very fond memories for us. I really love collecting handcrafted items from other places.
My GlobeIn subscription box arrived carefully packaged. I was excited to see bright colors as soon as I opened the box – inside was a beautiful bag as well as a basket.
The bag is a bright, handwoven purse, and the colors and construction are amazing. It is hard to believe that this item is handcrafted!
The weaving is perfect and beautiful, and it is truly amazing that someone made this by hand. I loved learning more about it:
Each bag is made by one woman; therefore each design is one of a kind. Weaving these bags is arduous work and takes between 20 to 30 days per bag. As their legend says the women were created from a spider and they use just their hands to interweave their products as a spider. They do not use a loom, as it is not part of their tradition.
Along with the bag came information about the artisan behind the bag, and I also was able to read more information on the GlobeIn website at the link that was provided (globein.com/maya). I really enjoyed reading about the background of the person who created the product.
I also received this beautiful basket. It is such a sweet, delicate basket that will make a nice addition to a shelf or counter.
Be sure to check out GlobeIn for all the amazing products they have to offer!
