When NOVICA contacted me to ask if I would like to run a giveaway competition on Beyond Blighty, it was a very easy decision to make. Just one glance at the website and I was drooling over beautifully handcrafted jewellery and picturing my London flat filled with Zapotec wool rugs from Mexico and Indonesian Batik wood sculptures. As fellow travellers, I’m sure you’ll all be as excited about discovering this website as I was!
The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a $75 gift card to use on any item from www.novica.com. There’s a huge range of products for both men and women and all you need to do to enter is fill in a few details at the end of this post.
NOVICA is a traveller’s guilty pleasure. Maybe you saw something overseas that you couldn’t fit in your backpack or perhaps you’ve been inspired by a certain region and would like to decorate your home in that style. The great thing about NOVICA is that they work to empower small businesses around the world by providing a connection between artisans in rural areas and a global marketplace of socially conscious customers.
NOVICA sells a range of products including jewellery, clothing, home decor, paintings and unique gifts from areas such as the Andes, Indonesia, Central America, Thailand and West Africa. The links below provide just a few examples.
One thing I really love about the site is that each product is accompanied by a portrait and biography of the artist, which gives the kind of personal touch most online stores fail to achieve.
You can even follow the artists whose work you like. Below every item is a detailed product overview and a section like this:
It’s rare to find a company with such strong moral values and admirable goals. Add to that a huge collection of stunningly beautiful and ethnically diverse products and you’re onto a winner.
Enter below by Tuesday July 22 and you could be a winner too! The competition closes on July 22 at 12:00 am GMT. Good luck!
This competition is now closed and the winner has been contacted. Thank you to everyone who entered. Please keep following Beyond Blighty. I hope to offer more exciting giveaways in the future!
