"Perfect robe "

Having spent hours searching for a house-coat or-robe I could wear at home and when travelling, I came upon this robe, which, now that it's arrived, I have fallen in with love. It's beautifully made, its colours are exactly as portrayed in the photo here, and it is even more substantial than I had anticipated. I can tell I'll get years of wear from it, and am thrilled with Parwati's work.

"A True Piece of Art"

Everything about this robe (Misty Javanese Forest) is exquisite: the colour is stunning and more intense than in the picture (did not fade a bit in a wash), the design gorgeous, the workmanship impeccable, the fabric very pleasant on the skin and the fit perfect, even for a tall woman like myself. I was so thrilled with this housecoat that I immediately ordered another one from the same artist. Parwati (I believe this is your first name rather than Desak), I found that Parvati in Sanskrit means "of the mountains" and is a goddess of love and power - I am honoured to be wearing your beautiful creation, which exudes these characteristics of your name. And NOVICA, the beautiful packaging together with the handwritten note with a few phrases in Balinese was very touching - like a present from a friend. This was my first purchase from NOVICA and it exceeded my highest expectations. Spreading happiness around the world indeed!

"My go to robe all year round"

The material is wonderfully soft and comfortable, keeping me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It looks great on and I am comfortable wearing it when I answer the door or someone stops by. Easy to wash on delicate, wrap in a big towel and dry by squeezing out excess water then hang up to finish.

"This robe is stunningly beautiful!"

For me, these are the colors in which my mind and body find the most peace. I fell in love with the robe via the catalog from Novica, but was absolutely stunned when I received it yesterday. It's simply gorgeous, and to know I've also supported an artisan in their work lifts my spirit.

"Like wearing a Monet"

Substantial material, but cool like a fine Tencel or silk. Colors evoke a Monet, my favorite artist. Lovely robe, yet clearly designed for comfort and ease. Very well made.

"Great quality, great customer service"

I absolutely love this robe! It arrived promptly and safely, and the handwritten card included by the seller was a very nice touch (they also have great handwriting, which is always a plus in my book). I will not hesitate to buy from them again! Everyone who has seen this robe asks me where it was purchased. The cloth is soft and flexible, while also retaining shape beautifully, and it's very versatile. Also, the colors are vibrant and look great in photos and in real life.

"Beautiful robe, perfect for traveling"

Not only does this robe look stunning (the colors are gorgeous and the workmanship perfect), it is also lightweight. I have been looking for a long time for something lightweight yet not flimsy or sheer that I could pack in my suitcase. I have now found it and promptly fallen in love with it.

""Like royalty!""

I ordered two of these robes as Christmas presents for relatives. One of them told me the gift was so beautiful that she felt "like royalty" when she wore it. The other, who lives near me, just hugged and kissed me. She was so pleased. She had been looking for a garment that would pack well so that she could have a comfortable lounge item to wear while traveling. I've loved every item I've ordered from this site. Their uniqueness, durability and the sense that I am assisting artisans to support themselves and their families through their crafts are great motivators for me. Looking forward to your next catalogue.

"Beautiful robe"

I bought this as a gift for a friend for Christmas. She absolutely loved it! Little did I know that she had been looking at it as well in her Novica catalogue. She was thrilled, and wears it all the time. She can answer the doorbell looking very elegant.

"Really Pretty"

This is a birthday gift for my Best Friend who has very good taste in clothes, so I was a little nervous about getting her any clothing ,however, when I say this robe, I can picture her in it. The material looks and feels high quality and it should last a very long time.
