With a mission to empower and connect talented remote artisans with mindful shoppers, GlobeIn is an online marketplace and subscription box service that is reducing poverty by helping artisans in developing countries reach a global audience. GlobeIn’s online Artisan Shop showcases a variety of beautifully handcrafted goods ranging from colorful homeware and fashion accessories to delicious spice blends and sauces from South Africa.
GlobeIn also offers monthly themed subscription Artisan Boxes that start as low as $43 a month and contain 4-5 curated items from the Artisan Shop that are valued at $70 or more. A verified Fair Trade Federation member, all of GlobeIn’s featured products are ethically produced and crafted by artisans earning a fair wage in a safe working environment.
Since its inception, GlobeIn has invested over 3.5 million in artisans in more than 50 countries around the world. In 2019, GlobeIn started its Artisan Fund, where box subscribers can make additional contributions with their purchases to further benefit GlobeIn’s artisan communities. Each month the fund benefits a different artisan community project.
Past projects have included hosting financial literacy workshops for blown glass workers in Mexico, free eye exams and spectacles for embroiderers in remote villages in India and the building of a craft center for basket weavers in Ghana. Impact transparency is core to the brand’s mission. Shoppers and subscribers learn about how the products are produced and the people who made them, allowing you to shop with a clear conscious and ensure that your purchasing power is contributing to a better world.
