Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

I was recently contacted by the company Novica,  in association with National Geographic, to ask if I would help spread the word of their mission to introduce my readers to artisans from around the world. “I am aware that your blog is not focused on product reviews but this is such a nice project that I thought you may be interested in doing it.”

I went to their website and immediately fell in love with their company mantra, their products and all of the individual artesian stories:
