Rocio Davila finds joy in living and creating, in realizing those little things that make life large. She has found artistic fulfillment in product design, working primarily with leather and gourds.

"Although I have taken courses in artistic design, I consider myself self-taught, since I have learned more from practice over the years. My work strives to show the inherent goodness of artisan labor, which is useful, durable, and ornamental. Through my own work, I enjoy sharing, and showing that we are able to do a labor of love in which we teach something of our own culture. I dedicate myself exclusively to this activity, and have formed a small working community of artisan families to generate a sustained production.

"My designs were exhibited in the United States (Miami) in 2000, and have been sent to other countries as well. At the same time, I have participated in special fairs locally. It has been a real challenge for me to dedicate myself to this art but, despite the difficulties, I have never been sorry. I am content, but not satisfied, with what I have achieved so far.

"For me, Novica is a challenge. I am aware that as far as product quality, Novica customers are very selective, but I have confidence that my works will prevail since two things are important to me: beauty and utility."

Davila's artistic and creative streak has taken her to explore different media and she enrolled in a design course offered by Lima's Art Museum. Apart from working with gourds, Davila designs unique home furnishings that bear her distinct mark, focusing only on natural materials. She filmed a documentary for the promotion of Peruvian art in the US and has been recognized by the Peruvian Embassy in Miami for promoting Peruvian culture abroad.

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.
