GlobeIn The Living Atlas Of Crafts! Subscription Box

Valentines Day Pick 2015
Globe

GlobeIn is one of the most unique subscription boxes out there!  Imagine receiving a gift box of original crafts by global artisans!!  I am absolutely thrilled with GlobleIn. This month’s gift box arrived with four of the most precious items!!

I want to start with the box.  I love the saying on the box:

The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt from the heart.
-Helen Keller-

There is a information card that accompanies each of the items. The card tells you about the artist, from their name to who taught them their craft. There is information about where each artist gets their inspiration. More to love about these information cards is a photograph of the artist. I really enjoy reading about each artist!

On to the treasures!

First up inside the box is from Oaxaca Mexico. Artist Martina Garcia Garcia learned to weave from her Aunt using palm leaves and fuchina. Fuchina is a special coloring that is used to paint the palm leaves. Martina made this adorable basket with a lid, in  a beautiful pink and white. SO pretty! So roomy! This little basket would be perfect for gift giving!!

Next up from Russia Khokhloma Matryoshka Dolls!! I have always wanted a set of Nesting Dolls! These are So CUTE!! I can’t wait to show the Grandkids!! There are six dolls nested into each other. Bright pretty faces!! Each face is different and equally as sweet! Made of a soft wood and painted with a special primer containing clay, linseed oil and aluminum powder to give them that soft gold hue. Next master artisans apply the traditional design of floral or fruit patterns. The final vanish is applied to the dolls and kiln-fired to strengthen the wood, harden the finish and fuse the layers into immortal works of art.

From Navidad, Mexico and artist Norma Diaz Vilchis.  Norma does amazing work with glass and lead wires. This little photo holder is super cute!! A little daisy with green glass leaves. This little photo holder is perfect!! Norma gets her inspiration from nature and Mexican Traditions.  This is a heavy photo holder! Quality made!

As always I save my favorite for last. (Although, truthfully I really love each one of these treasures!!)

From Kyrgyzstan, Novoravlovka and artist Bekysheva Burma.  Bekysheva has 18 years of experience making stitched felt items and I have one of her adorable items! A felt stitched little donkey. OH MY GOSH!! He is the cutest little guy!! With a happy little expression on his face, a little plaid blanket and red reigns; I just love this little guy!!! He looks so adorable on my knick knack shelf. He’s SO SWEET!!!  The details are amazing!! Hand-stitched with great attention to detail. I am in awe of the craftsmanship!! I want more of Bekysheva’s treasures!! She’s so talented!!

    What a nice colection of unique items! I love the nesting dolls. My grandmother had a set that I would play with when I was a little girl.

  • Rosie

    Wow this is the only subscription box that has ever caught my attention. So many wonderful finds from faraway places, and for crafts, too, my weakness!

  • Margot C

    How adorable. I have sort of a thing for various world items (nesting dolls, Spanish things, Italian things, African things); this would be such fun.

  • melisa

    Oh my goodness! I LOVE matrashkah! (sp) My son even owns a set that I got him a few years back of some iconic people he really likes. I really like this “box” ~ VERY cute!

  • Nancy C

    Such a great idea! I love the thought of opening a box and discovering a world of treasures from different parts of the globe. Love it! It’s great that the items aren’t massed produced either. Each item tells it’s own story and is from a real artist.

  • KATE SARSFIELD

    I’d never heard of this service before so thanks for the info Connie. Isn’t Helen Keller’s motto so true – I can feel goosebumps coing on! I always think homemade gifts are the nicest.

  • Pamela Gurganus

    These subscription boxes are too neat! They would make an awesome gift for my favorite cousin who is a big time crafter! Thank you for the information!

  • Diane K. Brimmer

    I have never heard of this before. What a wonderful idea! I absolutely love the different items that you received in your box this month. Each one is just so exquisitely made and hand crafted. Thanks for sharing your Globein Artisan Box.

  • Tami F.

    Thank you for your review of the GlobeIn Artisan box. I had never heard of the company, these crafts and the monthly subscription sounds wonderful. I also appreciate opportunity to win a box.

  • Maureen

    I have the Matryoshka Dolls as well. They are a different design as I was on vacation when I bought them. They are so interesting.

  • Sherry Martindale

    I would love to have a set of those nesting dolls as well. I think it would be fun to show my grandchildren as well. It would be fun to get them to keep opening them to see their faces when they kept getting smaller and smaller. 🙂
