Voyage to NOVICA for Artisan Treasures

Welcome to The NOVICA Nation!
A Nation of artists throughout the world —
a village of carvers in Bali;
a family of ceramists in Brazil who have handed down their craft
from generation to generation;
a farmer in the Andes who hand-weaves alpaca sweaters.
It is a community of artists who have been isolated
for centuries by distance, time, and geography —
isolated from the very community of collectors seeking
their unique, inspired, and undiscovered arts and crafts.
Now, finally, there is a bridge connecting our separate
communities into one worldwide nation —
this is The NOVICA Nation.
A nation of people inspired by the arts and
empowered by the Internet.
We are all members.

It is no secret to those who have meet my son. He LOVES sloths – like loves so much that he behaves like one (not knowingly.) When I began searching thought NOVICA’s curation, I was happily surprise to find the “Quirky Sloth” necklace. I just had to buy it. There is a beautiful Opal stone in the necklace from the Andes region. The pale coloring was so beautiful, that I began searching for it. Fortunately, NOVICA had the perfect earrings to go with the “Quicky Sloth,” called the “Hold Me.” Fitting name, don’t you think?! Everything arrives in a very timely manner, beautifully wrapped and well-made.
IMG_4291 An enclosed card told the story of each artisan, and this makes for a more personal shopping experience. I also LOVE that this is a free trade store, allowing artisans to earn more for their creations than they could if there was a middle-man, such as a wholesaler or retailer.
IMG_4300 NOVICA unites you with more than 2,000 extraordinary master artists around the world, offering them a fair price for their work. Every item you purchase directly benefits an artisan and their family, bringing sustainable income to distant communities worldwide.

You can find “like” more of their treasures on their Facebook page and follow their journey on Twitter.
