I am loving Novica and all the unique treasures I have come across while browsing this website! There truly is something for everyone! After reading more about Novica, I learned that they charge nothing to their artists and artisans for posting their items. These artists also have free range to set their own pricing. After reading some of the wonderful personal stories from some of Novica's truly talented artists, I think this is a wonderful way to shop and support these hardworking individuals worldwide.
Novica gave me the wonderful opportunity to see the quality of the products they have to offer. Below is a picture of the tote I chose to order, which is absolutely beautiful by the way! The particular tote I chose is called Happy Elephants and comes from Thailand. Not only was my order packaged beautifully, it came with an artisan story card so that I could truly understand who made my item and where it came from. This tote is extra roomy and has a nice front pocket area that I love because I'm one of those moms that carries a little bit of everything! This is one website you must see!
My "Happy Elephants" Tote!
