Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Sumalee has struggled for many years. She has a small shop in a local market but the sales are erratic, tied to tourism, and do not provide enough income to meet her expenses. Her Novica sales are essential to her survival and the survival of those who depend on her. She is working very hard to increase her sales.

Sumalee helps to support her mother in a unique way. She hires her mother and other older workers to help with the hand-finishing of her statement jewelry created from wooden beads.

As a child, Sumalee learned sewing, embroidery and weaving from her mother. She still practices these arts today and often teaches them to younger artisans.

Sumalee does not have any children but she loves being an aunt. She helps her younger sister with the cost of her niece's education.

This was a gift for my grandmother, she loves colorful and unique jewelry. She was impressed by how well made it is and how light weight.

"Perfect gift!"

I bought this for a friend who was leaving Africa after 15 years of volunteer work there. She absolutely loved it. I did too! I almost didn't want to give it away, but the joy on her face when she received it told me I'd made the right decision. Besides, I was able to buy another one too. Love the beautiful bead work.

"Gorgeous necklace! Daughter-in-Law loved it"

I ordered this necklace for my daughter in law. She did pick it out herself and loves the bright colors. I already knew this was high quality as I made a purchase for myself from the same artisan. Buying special gifts from Novica is so easy. Many times I let her pick out what she wants and then the gift is sent to her already wrapped. Shipping rates are lower than other Fair Trade sources.
