    Default Novica: Handbags from Around the World


    What handbag collection wouldn't be complete without something unique? Or perhaps even exotic? Well, how about both? Introducing Novica: an online, fair trade marketplace associated with National Geographic. Their mission is "to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity". They offer everything from home decor to jewelry to artwork. What really grabbed my attention, however, was their new handbag section. They have every shape, size, and style imaginable. Materials used include cotton, wool, silk, leather, beads, and even pop-tops. And the best part is, you don't have to be interested in hippie-like styles to find something you'll absolutely love there.

    The bags are handcrafted by artisans from Bali, Java, Brazil, India, Mexico, and Thailand. I think what I love most about Novica is how they give a name and a face to associate with each piece. Each artist has a story to tell and it's wonderful to learn a little something about them when you're considering purchasing one of their works of art. This is definitely a website I suggest you check out! These handbags would certainly make wonderful conversation pieces!

    Here are a few of my favorites listed below:

    1. "Moonbeams" Clutch
    Natural jute with rhinestone beads
    Artist: Radhika
    Price: $94.95
    Gorgeous for a special evening out!

    2. "Earth Day" Shoulder Bag
    Silkscreen on cotton
    Artist: Thanyarat Sananpanich
    Price: $64.99
    Perfect for use as a shopping tote!

    3. "Grand Central" Handbag
    Natural leather
    Artist: Ricardo Hinojosa
    Price: $109.99
    Elegant and chic!


    Check out these styles and many, many more at NOVICA - Home Decor, Jewelry & Gifts by Talented Artisans Worldwide!

    So I just browsed around the site some more and I grabbed the 'Skeletal Hat Dance' bracelet! Perfect for "Day of the Dead" ... maybe even Halloween as well.

    I haven't received it yet. I think their shipping window is like anywhere between 1-3 weeks .. I also ordered a few other things which haven't shipped out either.

    edit: I just logged in to my account and it looks like everything shipped out on the 19th.
