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.
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.
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.
