We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.
At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.
We want you to know about who you’re buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.
In the spirit of the Internet, let us bring you together.
NOVICA. The World is Your Market.
The words above are NOVICA’s mission. Sounds pretty simple right? By buying from say an artisan wood sculptor in Bali you are getting a priceless work of art and are helping someone real. Not some factory or wholesaler, but an actualy real person whose lives depend on this. Not only can you get things from the exclusive NOVICA live, but you can get Earrings, necklaces, and other unique gifts.
I ordered this stunning Silk batik scarf called ‘Pink Fantasy’. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s made by Yuni Kristina who lives in Indonesia and it will be shipping from there and it’s only $37.99! With each purchase An artisan story card will be included to let you know a little bit about the person who made this. You can also contribute $2 to Novica’s New Region Development Fund at checkout to help NOVICA reach new artisans around the world? The Grassroots Business Fund (a not-for-profit affiliate of the World Bank) is matching each contribution. It’s a win win no matter how you look at it.
