CLOSED Giveaway: $50 Gift Card to Novica

Mission Statement
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.

I have previously been able to work with Novica & the products are nothing less than amazing plus unique. What I love is that you will not only be receiving an amazing product but also be helping other less fortunate. Below I have included some really cool products I have found on Novica while browsing their website.

Nickel and wood picture frame, 'Serpentine' (4x6)

Wittaya designs a photo frame of dazzling beauty, where swirling serpentines fall from florid mosaics. The illusion is captivating and enhanced by nickel's glistening texture. Carved of raintree wood, the photo frame features a glass pane for protection.

An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
Women's batik robe, 'Hibiscus Red'

Evoking shadows illuminated at sunrise, hibiscus flowers appear in silhouettes on crimson batik. Comfortable and beautiful, this robe by Nyoman Nadri is fashioned with a flattering front-wrap style, wide sleeves and matching belt.

Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax is painted by hand onto areas where color is not desired. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and the process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.
Tunic, 'Exotic Blue'

Catherine Dox casts a spell of exotic femininity with the design of this spectacular tunic. Can be worn alone, or over pants and leggings. The tunic features long sleeves with slanted cuffs and hemline. It is adorned with golden patterns on the front, and the sleeves are embroidered by hand with sequins and beads.

Silk and cotton sling tote, 'Oriental Red'

Ruby silk distinguishes a design with Oriental styling. Jiap Rojjana transforms the fabric into a generous sling tote. Black cotton forms the strap, tied by golden cords with rain tree wood beads. The shoulder bag is lined with cotton. It features an inner pocket that zips closed, and fastens with a coconut shell button.

Novica also carries a nice selection of Sarongs & Floral Bracelets which make the perfect unique gifts as pictured below!

Cotton sarong, 'Orange Bamboo Paradise'

Indonesia's rich flora inspires the batik bamboo patterns on this stylish sarong. Designed by Ketut Suwitra, its cool cotton textures are ideal for summer elegance.
Amethyst wrap bracelet, 'Lilac Bouquet'

Shimmering petals center a bouquet of tender buds and tendrils. Handcrafted of amethyst, it blooms on a circlet of glittering glass. Busarin's feminine design is threaded by hand on stainless steel strands. The bracelet is wrapped about the wrist for a custom fit.

If you need to find a unique gift for any occasion such as birthdays or even Unique Corporate Gifts!
