We have another spoiler for the October 2015 GlobeIn Artisan Box box!
The October 2015 GlobeIn Artisan Box theme is “Cozy” and all boxes will contain:
~Hand-painted mug by Le Souk Ceramique ($15)
~Fair Trade Scarf by Marquet ( $22)
The beautiful mug comes from Nabeul, a city on the Mediterranean coast of northeastern Tunisia and the center of Tunisian pottery. Your mug’s skillfully painted lines evoke the air of peace, prosperity, and teamwork embodied by modern Tunisians.
This is no ordinary mug: much bigger in size than mass-produced pieces and lovingly covered by intricate Tunisian designs, it has potential to become much more than your go-to hot drink vessel! Display it as your kitchen’s art statement or add a small flower and use it as a mini vase.
Your scarf is made in Thailand by the members of the Ton Fai, or “Cotton Tree” artisan group, who weave 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.
