A few months ago I was contacted by GlobeIn to do a giveaway for you all! Before accepting to do giveaways with organizations I always check up on them to not only see what they offer, but where they source their products from and how these products are produced. GlobeIn is a monthly subscription box which means that you pay a flat rate and receive goodies of a certain theme that you select, which sum up to a higher retail value than you pay. What I like about GlobeIn is that all the products in their "boxes" are purchased from the cooperative or artisan and sustainably made artisan goods, curated from around the globe, hence their name, globe in. :) Anyways, their boxes have different themes like baking essentials, a dinner party pack and even a laundry bundle. Each month a different theme is sent out, with all artisan made products! It's always exciting to be able to discover new artisan products being offered to the global market. I especially like the quality of all the products that came in this cozy bundle. The mug is simply gorgeous!!! I love how chunky the scarf is when it is worn, and as for the chocolate, well I gave chocolate up for lent so I can't have it just yet, however, I have had Divine chocolate (fair trade) before and it's yummy! The basket I don't have much use for because I am a container fanatic, however it will make excellent gift wrap. Cheers to that and to ethical fashion giveaways that aren't fast fashion hauls! Best wishes to everyone entering to win this bundle! :)

"Five hours from Oaxaca, in the town of San Pedro Jocotipac, Don Juan GarcĂ­a and his family of artisan basket weavers sit together for hours a day weaving. With a dexterity passed down through generations, ancestry come to life in the tireless work of fingers, they fashion the palms into vibrant, multi-colored baskets.
Don Juan and his family produce about 800 baskets per month. He then transports the baskets to Oaxaca where they are picked up by Marina Lopez, who coordinates with GlobeIn.
For the people of the Mixteca region, as this part of Mexico is known, basket-weaving is a way of life that also sustains life. Thanks to the money earned through collaboration with GlobeIn, Don Juan has increased his production and is saving to become a small business owner."
Marquet Fair Trade Scarf :: Thailand
"Mrs. Sunthong, a member of the Ton Fai, or “Cotton Tree” artisan group, weaves products on a traditional hand-built loom using 100% locally-grown cotton. Whereas many rural Thai are forced to leave their families and seek work in the city to earn a secondary income, the weavers work on their craft between harvesting and planting season, integrating it into their farming lifestyle. Picture your scarf being woven by neighbors working together against the backdrop of their idyllic mountainside home."
Divine Chocolate Cooperative Cocoa Powder:: Ghana
"Divine Chocolate is co-owned by Kuapa Kokoo, a cocoa-growing cooperative in Ghana whose 85,000 farmer members get a share in the profits, a say in the company, and a voice in the global marketplace. Literally “good cocoa growers,” Kuapa Kookoo seeks to empower farmers in their efforts to gain a dignified livelihood, develop environmentally-friendly cultivation of cocoa, and increase women’s participation.
Margret Fianko (photo taken by Divine Chocolate) has been a member of the co-op for 13 years. Having never gone to school, Margret is learning numeracy and literacy through a program managed by Kuapa and using her new skills to manage money in her market stall. She hopes to one day be elected as a Kuapa recorder—someone responsible for buying cocoa from other Kuapa members."
Le Souk Ceramique Mug:: Tunisia
"Your mug comes from Nabeul, a city on the Mediterranean coast of northeastern Tunisia and the center of Tunisian pottery. Many of the artisans who handpainted your mug have been working for Le Souk for years and their collaborative process has become a familiar dance.
The creation of your mug went something like this: Mokhtar manned the potter’s wheel, and Hichem painted the top and bottom lines of the mug and set the outline. Riadh then painted the honeycomb/seashell design, and Zouhaira and her teammates Olfa and Faten took turns adding in the dots of color. Finally, Ahmed painted the rim’s black border and Noureddine dunked the mug into a glaze to finish it."

Cozy Hugs,

  6. Awe Christina, this is really sweet, I love the idea of thinking about these people working on their projects with their hands in their home settings.... I love technology but not to the point that people lose their way of life. There is not a lot of this up in Nova Scotia, however; I am sure if I researched it I would find some in small communities that I am unaware of... This is a wonderful give away xox
