You guys know that I love unique, handmade, fair trade items. If you caught my Small Business Saturday post after Thanksgiving then you know that I supporting businesses that give back is a priority for me and partnering with like-minded businesses is awesome. Recently, I found NOVICA and fell right in love.
NOVICA’s mission is to: connect, empower, + preserve.
They connect artisans with real customers, empower artists from across the globe by allowing their artists to set their prices and help provide 0% interest loans to artists who are looking to expand their small businesses. NOVICA helps to preserve traditional artist techniques from around the globe by giving the artists the ability to make a sustainable living from their craft instead of having to search for more lucrative careers outside of their art.
NOVICA is helping people to live their dreams and helping you and I make ethical choices in our purchases by providing real information about who made a product. Each item listed has the artist’s bio right at the bottom, how cool is that?!
And they have a HUGE selection of gifts. These are my favorite 11 Unique fair trade gift ideas from NOVICA
