Handmade treasures and unique design items that tell a story can be the most cherished pieces in your home. I am excited to work with Novica again, a company that provides just that. Novica is in association with National Geographic and they have developed a site that allows you to purchase unique, handmade items from artists around the world. They are bridging the gap between us (the consumer) and the many talented artisans around the globe. When you receive your items from Novica, it comes beautifully wrapped with a handmade ribbon and story about the artist. Many of these artists were struggling to feed their families and this site gave them hope to continue doing the craft they love. When a company representative reached out to me, I was able to search their site and find my own unique treasures. It was difficult to narrow it down, since there are home decor items, furniture, jewelry and clothing, just to name a few. I did find a beautiful beaded basket and I can’t wait to share it with you!
The Novica Experience
I was so impressed with the packaging and the thoughtful way they made this gift special. I chose the Beaded Rattan Basket called, Night Thunder and can be found HERE. I loved the zig zag, chevron like shape. It came all the way from Bali and was handmade by Wayan Sukerni. The intricate bead work makes this basket a treasure! I knew it could fit anywhere in my house and I was excited to play around with its placement. Here is where you come in handy! I love it in so many places, I need your help in the decision!
