November’s Benefit Basket for GlobeIn: Bedroom Box
Each Benefit Basket for November will come with a Seahorse Pillow Pet (a $22 value) from Guatemala. This seahorse pillow can be used as a throw pillow to add a splash of color to your bedding. In addition, November’s Benefit Basket will feature a new square design of the GlobeIn Signature Basket.
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.
Silvia Mazariegos is a tailor and designer that helped pilot Y’abal’s Pillow Pet product line. Recently, Silvia’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease which has already taken the life of her eldest sister. For Silvia and her family, the pillow pet has indeed become a beacon of hope, especially the GlobeIn order of 1000 seahorses that came at just the right time. The whole family has organized to assist Silvia in the effort of cutting, sewing, stuffing, and assembling the pets, the proceeds of which will cover the sister’s costly path back to health.
Each November Bedroom Box will also come with a Handwoven Bowl by Makaua (Mexico; a $10 value and colors will vary).
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. Palm is an incredible natural fiber, flexible enough to weave into intricate designs while still durable and long-lasting. Makaua artisans combine skills inherited from ancestors with their own individual creative visions.
This handwoven bowl can be used to add color and order to your bureau – use your bowl as a repository for everyday accessories such as jewelry, watches, hair clips, wallets, and lip balm, to name a few.
The Bedroom Artisan Box will also come with a Handmade Bud Vase from Nepal (a $12 value; vases will come in the same size and color but in a few slightly different shapes) and a Massage Oil Candle with Shea Butter from Ghana (a $5 value).
