A product review and a giveaway- NOVICA!


I am happy to collaborate with NOVICA again for another product review today. You can check out my previous review here


NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites, working with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. You will find thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts, accessories, jewelry, apparel and home decor items on their website.

Now, let's take a look at some of my favorite NOVICA products, shall we?












Which item is your favorite? By the way, NOVICA is featuring these products so don't forget to check them out when you get a chance!




For this review, I was given a $50 gift certificate to spend on a product of my choice. After browsing their website for a while, I decided on this item for today's review.





My box came beautifully wrapped which is a great surprise to me!


The lovely doll gift topper is a great touch (I am definitely keeping it!).


A post card is included with my box as well.


Ta-dah, here is my gorgeous box!


The delightful details.


The box's interior.

I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous handcrafted box for its vibrant colors and beautiful, simple cubist style design. Painted by hand, the color combination is very charming and I like how the bright colors created a wonderful contrast against the dark wood. Made of pine wood, this box is solid and well-made. The box is also bigger than what I expected (which is a big plus!) and the lovely presentation brings a smile to my face. Needless to say, I am totally in love with my new decorative box! 

You can check out other fabulous products created by the same artist here. 

*I received this product to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

If you are like me and love beautifully handcrafted items, you will love this giveaway because NOVICA is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky Mix And Chic reader!
 
This giveaway is open to readers worldwide.*
 
*International winner will have to pay for taxes and duties.
