A product review- NOVICA!

I was absolutely thrilled when I was contacted by NOVICA to do a product review recently. Having seen several of their reviews and giveaways around the blogosphere, I am quite familiar with their amazing and unique handcrafted products!

In case you have not heard about it, 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.

With a generous gift certificate from NOVICA, I started shopping for my favorite items for this review. Frankly, I was quite undecided with what to purchase given that they are so many beautiful items on their website. After much consideration, I picked a pretty cotton blouse and a stylish leather bracelet.

I was immediately drawn to this lovely cotton blouse for its vibrant colors and gorgeous hand embroidered details. 

The color palette on the floral embroidery is well chosen and provides a wonderful contrast to the blouse.

Check out the different color options!

This was the trendy dark brown leather bracelet I picked. I love that it is adjustable and it fits around my small wrist perfectly.

The leather bracelet comes with this charming gift box.

Overall, I am pleased with both products from NOVICA. Both products are well made and the workmanship is impeccable. The 'Tangerine Floral' cotton blouse is beautifully sewn, lightweight and the cut is flattering for all body types. The 'Double Wrap Brown' leather wristband bracelet is made of rich dark brown leather, has a modern minimalist design and looks stylish.

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