The mission of NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, is to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents, to spur their creativity and to be paid a fair wage for their craft.

Due to the handcrafted nature of each piece, colors, motifs, sizes, shapes and designs may vary slightly from the images shown or dimensions provided.
