In conjunction with National Geographic, Novica works “to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.”
Last year, I learned about Novica. Affiliated with National Geographic, it is a fair trade organization that acts on behalf of artisans throughout the world to have “a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.”
About a year ago, I had the opportunity to review a few samples and I was so impressed by both the quality and selection of the Novica marketplace. The bracelet and tote bag that I ordered were beautiful! The packaging just as much so. Needless to say, I was impressed.
Recently Novica invited me to check out their shawls, clothing, and other accessories and products. It was really hard to choose how to spend the gift card they sent. There were so many beautiful things to choose from. I ended up selected two of the lowest priced scarfs, one to keep and one to give away.
I like to share the love.
And I love it that folks who are working hard in places like Guatemala, Bali, Java, Brazil, India, Thailand, Mexico, and West Africa get the opportunity to sell their products on the open market for a fair wage. While the items are not cheaply priced, neither are they “cheap” if you get my drift. Shipping was only $2.99 which I consider more than reasonable.
