Artisan Information

Cecilia Magallon

For a woman, a handbag to complement her day-to-day look is of vital importance. This is precisely what led me to design and craft them. A purse can be the perfect accessory for a woman's elegance.

It was tough when my daughter was diagnosed with diabetes, and I became depressed. Yet that was when I began to find inspiration. How could I create an elegant handbag that shows our Mexican traditions and is also eco-friendly?

"In Mexico some time ago, it was very common to see homemakers with a lovely, reusable shopping bag when she'd go to the market. And this led me to choose a recycled material to revive this lovely tradition.

"And I realized these bags could become a complement to our outfits. On day, a good friend who is a designer taught me the details of leatherwork and how to enhance each design. So we began working together with two others who helped us weave.

"I remember that, at first, we gave away some of our bags so people would begin talking about how they liked our designs. Today, we give work to homemakers and single mothers who want to work from home.

"Each of our bags is inspired in Mexico's traditions, such as accents in Talavera-style ceramics, and our vibrant colors combined with color trends. But my greatest inspiration is my family. They have given me the strength to continue growing and innovating in the art that is my passion."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
