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 Necklaces, Unique 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!!
