"This is a treasured heirloom that I can past down."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am very proud of my wool rug, Claret Rhombi because it is a outstanding heirloom that everyone gives compliments every time they walk in the house. I share with them where I received it and let them know that can help others by going into Novica.com and become partners with this wonderful company! My friends loved the idea of helping others. This work was done with great love and the colors are so majestic with such great impressive beauty that is so and now I have the privilege to past this to my only son. I know he will take pride and treasure this wool area rug as I do.I hope and pray that others will be so happy as we are in displaying this beautiful piece of excellent work in our home. Exquisite, lovely are words that others are describing this elegant rug that is displayed in our living room. Being part of NOVICA has made me and my family very proud of being part of helping others as well. Thank you for this heirloom that I can share in the future with my son as well!!!
