GlobeIn introduces you to products that you can feel good about - they are often organic, fair-trade, and support artisans and farmers from around the world.

The theme for November is "Bedroom". 
The bedroom is a place of rest and renewal for our most quiet, private selves. It’s the place where we wake out of sleep and that we return to each night, back from the world, to dream and to love and to look in the mirror.

Tucked away from the public, the bedroom is a place that beckons us to soften. Each item in your box is aimed toward enhancing this room’s ability to nourish and revive, to return you to yourself through simple, personal pleasures.
Palm Leaf Basket (Mexico, $12)
As always, the products come tucked inside a hand woven palm leaf basket. November features a new square design. I like it! GlobeIn suggests using it as a tissue box holder.
 
Makaua Woven Bowl (Mexico, $10)
Your bowl is the result of a people tied tightly to a sense of place marrying their innate creativity to nature’s offerings. In the southern mountains of Mexico, this offering is palm, a resource used by the people of the region for centuries.
This is a lovely and sturdy little bowl. It will go on top of my dresser to hold jewellery and trinket. (Also, it's pretty cool that Makaua baskets were carried at Barney's New York. Très posh.)

Y'abal Handicrafts Sea Horse Pillow Pet (Guatemala, $22)
In K’iche,’ a Mayan language spoken in the Guatemalan highlands, the word y’abal means “hope.” By creating social programs and fair trade job opportunities for Guatemalan women weavers, Y’abal Handicrafts indeed represents hope for the women, their communities, and their culture.
GlobeIn suggests using it as a throw pillow, or to add a splash of colour to your bedding.

Sundos & Silk Organic Shea Butter Massage Candle (Ghana, $5)
This top-notch shea butter is the result of the arduous yet spirited process of Ghanaian women working intensively with nature’s materials. Many hands have gathered, sorted, roasted, and endlessly stirred to transform the meat of the shea nut into a rich, creamy butter to nourish your home and sustain their lives.
Light the candle, let it melt for a bit, blow it out, and use the liquid for a relaxing massage.

Ten Thousand Villages Handmade Bud Vase (Nepal, $12)
Your bud vase represents new beginnings for Tej Bhadur Prajapati from Nepal. Made with a combination of feldspar and other materials imported from India, your vase is the product of his own unique material and technique.
This vase is much smaller than expected but it's super cute. I might use it in my en-suite bathroom. Also of note - Ten Thousand Villages is a Canadian Fair Trade marketplace! Be sure to check them out.

The November "Bedroom" themed GlobeIn Artisan Box included five items with a retail value of $61 US. The products are all well made and support great causes. I love that they included a product sourced from Ten Thousand Villages. It's a great company and worth checking out.
