CoolCanucks Review of Novica.com!

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

 

Novica is one of the lead­ing fair trade arti­san web­sites. Novica works with National Geo­graphic to give tal­ented arti­sans around the world a place to express their artis­tic tal­ents and pro­vide access to the world market.

Novica, in asso­ci­a­tion with National Geo­graphic, sells prod­ucts — home decor, jew­elry, apparel, gifts and more — made by arti­sans from Asia, Africa and Latin Amer­ica. Artists post their work on the Novica site for free; Novica allows them to set their own prices. The com­pany makes money when a piece sells, and goods ship directly from the coun­try of origin.

The online com­pany gives you the oppor­tu­nity to learn about the artists lives, explore fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tures,  and browse more than 30,000  unique gifts includ­ing green gifts, Gifts for her, apparel, home decor, beau­ti­ful hand­made jew­elry, Turquoise Jew­elry, Sil­ver Neck­lacesUnique Gifts, carved wood fur­ni­ture, gifts for mom, and soooooooooo much more!

 

 

Novica was designed specif­i­cally to give artisan’s a chance to sell their designs. This is such a great site. I was thor­oughly impressed with the designs that they offer! They offer any­thing from sil­ver jew­elry to home decor that are hand­made. They also offer gor­geous neck­laces! These arti­sans are truly gifted!

Each of the artists have a bio that you can view to get an inside glance at the per­son from whom you are pur­chas­ing from.

We want to give artists and arti­sans around the world a global plat­form to express their true artis­tic tal­ents and to spur their cre­ativ­ity. And, we want to pro­vide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great val­ues that only the Inter­net infra­struc­ture can allow.

At the deep­est essence of our phi­los­o­phy, we want to cre­ate a bridge between you and the many tal­ented arti­sans across the globe.

We want you to know about who you’re buy­ing from. We want you to feel that attach­ment to the prod­uct and to the hands that cre­ated it.”

 

Every­thing that Novica.com sells is com­pletely gor­geous and made of high quality.

I was sent two really gor­geous unique hang­bags to review, and absolutely love them both!

Their deliv­ery time as well as their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are also beyond outstanding!!

“Mighty and regal, ele­phants cel­e­brate Thailand’s artis­tic her­itage in a design by Jiap Roj­jana. The bro­cade adorns a cot­ton shoul­der bag trimmed with rain tree wood and a coconut shell but­ton. The lined inte­rior fea­tures a prac­ti­cal pocket.”

“Embroi­dered in pre­cise pat­terns, hill tribe motifs form col­or­ful stars. Ancha­lika Cham­nan works with locally grown or pre­pared mate­ri­als to craft this chic shoul­der bag. The cot­ton motifs are applied to hemp, while lon­gan wood hoops attach the straps.”

I give this com­pany a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend them to everyone!!

I want to thank Novica.com for let­ting me be part of their review!!
