We transform nature's beauty into unique décor items with an elegant, functional design. I began this project in 2013 when the company where I worked closed its doors and many of us were left without jobs. My goal was to work with natural materials to create designs that could be used in the home, Ingrid Gamboa says.

"In 2014, Andrea Benavente joined the team to design a line of décor items. From the first moment, we got along fabulously and decided to continue working together.

"This really is a beautiful project. We work with women in different Maya communities in Guatemala and we've been able to help many families in villages that are somewhat isolated, where money is scarce."

"It's exciting to know that we can do something for Guatemala's development, and this fills us with pride. It's our motivation day by day. We want to do better and better for these people. We've formed a bond with the artisans and we're so happy to have met one another. More than colleagues, we're like a big family today," Andrea adds.

"We're totally committed to preserving our culture and want to stabilize the economy of women weavers with a decent and steady income.

"All of our designs have a small label depicting a ceiba, or kapok tree, which is Guatemala's national tree. Another meaning it has for us is the "tree of life," representing shelter for those needing protection."

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.
