I absolutely love handmade items – and I was delighted to find Novica. Novica was started to help artisans worldwide get exposure for their items and help them sell them on a worldwide platform. Every item on their site is hand-crafted – not mass produced in a factory – and has information about the creator on the site. I asked my husband to help me choose something with the $30 credit I was given, and he picked out this beautiful necklace:


“Summer Flower” Necklace, created by Nareerat in Thailand

It was shipped and arrived quickly, for an item coming from Thailand! And it was packaged so beautifully – you could easily buy a gift and know it will arrive ‘wrapped’ so nicely:

It came with a little card about the artist, as well as a handwritten thank you note from the artist herself! I loved it!

  98. Before loaning, people should be aware that novica’s zero-interest loan policy is not entirely true. The artisans must actually leave the equivalent of the loan in products in novica’s office for sale on their website. I think that this collateral policy completely defies the purpose of micro-loaning.
