I was blessed to receive this beautiful package from Novica. This wasn't just your normal gift wrap, this package had been hand-wrapped with beautiful paper and carefully crafted authentic Indian ribbon. This is Novica's Premium Gift Wrap which is currently available from purchases from Bali, Thailand and India right now although other regions will be offer premium gift wrap very soon.
Another unique feature of Novica gifts is that they include a handwritten thank you note thanking me for my purchase. The note is written by the artisan who made the product I purchased and the top part is in their native language and below it they translate it to English! It includes a stamp from India as well and our kids thought this was super cool to look at and read.
I received the Assam Garden Cotton Shoulder Bag (handmade in India) from Novica. I chose this bag because I love shoulder bags that can easily hold a lot of stuff and yet they are comfortable and not bulky and cumbersome. This bag fit that description perfectly and I loved the unique colors, the pom-pom's and the red lining of this bag. This bag also includes a zip-up inside pocket and a snap closure.
Along with the shoulder bag, there was an included tag that told me about the artisan who created my new shoulder bag and it gave me a description of my purse that helped me understand the unique features and handmade quality of my purchase. The Novica website also showed me a picture of the artisan who made my purse and told me about her as well. With Novica, you also have the option to follow artisan's and also see all the handmade creations they currently have for sale. This shoulder bag will be something I carry with me for many years and I've already had several people ask me about where I purchased it because it is so unique.
