Novica is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work 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 offers a wide range of beautiful, unique handcrafted items including Handmade Gifts, Home Decor Gifts, Abstract Paintings, Decor Accessories, and more.
I really like that Novica gives artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. They don’t charge the artist’s any fees for listing their items on the website. The artists remain fully independent; they are free to raise their prices, lower their costs, or remove their items from our website, etc.
With items like, stunning handmade jewelry from Bali, one of a kind handbags from Thailand, and stylish women’s clothing from the Andes I had a difficult time deciding what to pick. The options are endless! I decided on this gorgeous Hot Pink Glam Glass Beadwork Jewelry Box, made by Seema, an artisan from Kashmir, India. Isn’t it stunning? This beautiful jewelry box arrived packaged in two boxes, one beautifully gift-wrapped inside a regular box. It was packed very well and arrived in perfect condition.
Included was the artist’s story, featuring a description of the artisan. This is very helpful in knowing exactly where your product came from. It was nice to find a handwritten thank you card in my package. Very pleasant to read. A lovely touch had it been a gift for someone else.
This elegant Hot Pink Glam Glass Beadwork Jewelry Box measures 6.25″ H x 9″ W x 3.1″, the perfect size to hold all of my precious jewelry. Made of satin and 100% polyester, the flowers glisten with embellished hand-sewn beads and sequins. The top of the box is super soft and cushioned, feels like suede. The pink fabric used to craft this jewelry box is gorgeous.
This beautiful jewelry box is lined, featuring a removable tray with three compartments, that are easy to pull out. Perfect for storing more significant pieces of jewelry. On the inside of the lid is a mirror, that completes the versatile allure of this box.
I literally couldn’t stop admiring the beautiful detail of the beadwork. It’s truly a treasure to be admired.
I was impressed with the delivery and shocked at how quickly it arrived. Only three days from India to Canada! To me, that speaks volumes about the company. I appreciate that care is taken for shipping.
I did pay $3 USD for duty to bring it into Canada. Factoring in the cost and value of the product I received, the small amount of duty was worth it.
Next on my list of things I want, is this beautiful Siamese Blush Unique Cotton Shoulder Bag from Thailand and really my list of things I would like from Novica goes on and on! I am sure you will fall in love with their products too.
Novica recently added a new “Curation” website allowing you to design stunning collections of your favourite products and share them with your friends. The site is similar to Pinterest, but more responsive. It helps artisans gain additional exposure resulting in greater success in their craft. Tons of fun and all for a good cause.
