GIVEAWAY CLOSED: CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER: GINA M.
Fair Trade. We’ve all heard the phrase, but how many of us know what it really means or how much it matters?
Fair trade is a trading partnership that allows producers and buyers to work together with transparency and respect; seeking greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions and secure rights for international providers and workers. [source] In a nutshell: Fair trade ensures both sides of a commercial transaction for goods are treated fairly. The open market afforded by fair trade practice has brought us some of the most amazing and beautiful work from artists around the world.
NOVICA: The World is Your Market
NOVICA, in partnership with National Geographic, wants to give artists around the world a global platform to express their talents. They want to provide you with access to these unique, hard-to-find items at a great value.
“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.”
With NOVICA you can explore beautiful hand made jewelry, gifts, garments and home decor from Andes, Bali and Java, Brazil, Central America, India, Mexico, Thailand and West Africa — all from the comfort of home. Explore the site, watch personal videos created by the artisans themselves and find that perfect something that is just right for you.
Each item travels a special journey directly from the artist’s hands….to yours.
One of my favorite NOVICA galleries is the hand crafted silver and precious stones jewelry. The largest online collection of artisan handcrafted jewelry, including pearl, turquoise and extraordinary silver treasures. “Please check it out for yourself and see the beauty Novica offers.” – Decor & Style Magazine.
