** Benefit Basket ended as of January 2017. Click here to check out GlobeIn's Artisan Box.** 
What is it? GlobeIn Benefit Basket
How Much? $19.95/month or $56.95/3 months. Additional $12 shipping per box. Prices in US dollars.
What’s in it? A handcrafted good nestled inside a handwoven basket

Each month, GlobeIn delivers the Artisan Gift Box, a collection of artisan-made products from around the world, curated around a central theme. From the GlobeIn Artisan Box, comes the GlobeIn Benefit Basket.
Think of it as a mini Artisan Box: a budget-friendly alternative for mindful consumers looking to discover crafted, distinct goods that empower remarkable artisans in remote regions of the world.
The Benefit Basket includes one incredible handcrafted good, selected from the month's Artisan Box, delivered to you nestled inside GlobeIn's signature handwoven basket. Inside each Benefit Basket, you will also find a story about the artisan, their community, and how you are making an impact on their lives with your purchase.

The theme for the January Artisan Box was Bathe and featured some great products to help us retreat and unwind. Click here to see my full Artisan Box review.

The star item of the Bathe box was the Pestemel Turkish Towel. It was the natural choice for the Benefit Basket. The card tells the story of Guler Sucu, a member of a cooperative of weaving families in the Turkish town of Buldan. True Turkish towels are still woven by hand, just like during the ancient Ottoman times.

GlobeIn Signature Handwoven Basket ($12)
Handcrafted from discarded palm leaves by indigenous Oaxacan artisans and colored using natural, water-borne paints, each basket can take up to six hours to weave.

Pestemal Bath Towel  ($25)
A traditional accessory to the Turkish bath, your 100% cotton pestemal towel absorbs water faster than a regular towel, dries quickly, and folds up small.

I wrote about my experience with Turkish towels (purchased direct during my travels in Turkey) yesterday when I reviewed the Artisan Box. Click here for a refresher. Basically, I'm a fan and I have several!

The January Benefit Basket included a lovely Pestemal towel from Turkey and a handwoven basket from Mexico. The retail value of these items is $37 US. This box costs $31.95 US per month, including shipping to Canada. The value isn't as high as the GlobeIn Artisan box, but it is a good way to get the GlobeIn experience, without the full cost. The January Benefit Basket is still available for one-time purchase (non-subscription). Click here to check it out.  The towel is available for purchase on its own as well. Click here for that.

If you are interested in subscribing to the Benefit Basket, new customers can use coupon code TRYBENEFIT to save 35% off their first month's box with a purchase of a 3-month Benefit Basket subscription. That gives you $7 off, bringing your 3-month subscription down to $49.95, plus shipping.
