NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites with unique, hard-to-find items at great values. I can look at the wonderful items all day. They're so beautiful. And every time I look, I find something else I love.
NOVICA works with National Geographic to give talented artisans worldwide, a place to express their artistic talents, and provide access to the world market. You can also meet the artisans and learn details about how NOVICA has changed their lives.
NOVICA has thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts and home decor items on it's website.
When you want to purchase a corporate gift with meaning, look to award winning gifts such as sculptures and Murano Glass; chess and domino sets for clients; in-room and conference gifts that can be personalized or create memories or add a special touch; or employee recognition gifts that symbolize teamwork, unity and strength.
I love the eco-friendly, recycled items the most. There are some beautiful purses made from wrappers and pull tabs from cans.
Each gift touches the lives of the artists and artisans who creates the item, which truly is a gift that gives back. NOVICA does not charge artists any fees for listing their items on the website. The artists remain fully independent - they are free to raise or lower their prices, or remove their items from the website.
You can increase your impact and further help artisans expand their businesses by providing access to microfinancing. NOVICA has launched the first-ever microfinance website where customers can purchase products and lend money directly to artisans, with loans at 0% interest. This helps artisans grow their business. You earn a 15% bonus if you spend your repayment at Novica.com.
Recently launched, NOVICA Live, is the new home-based selling company. Over the years, customers have said they want to see the products in person. For this reason, NOVICA launched a new party plan division giving new Consultants the opportunity to do just that - showcase beautiful gifts and jewelry through home parties in an entertaining way, while supporting artisans worldwide.
If you're interested in hosting a party, please visit the party plan page or if home-based selling is of interest, then view the direct sales opportunities on the Consultant page.
