I love to find unique gifts from all over the world. One of the best ways I have found to see thousands of ideas in the same place is Novica. Novica is associated with The National Geographic Society. I have shopped here many times. Sometimes it was hard to navigate through the massive selection. Novica received many e-mails regarding this issue and they listened. They sent me a gift code to test out their new easy to use gift finder. Wow what a difference. The Gift finder makes it super simple to find exactly what you are looking for. Navigation lets you search according to price range, gift recipient, category, interest, personality, gift type, occasion, and even region of the world gift is from. Now that is nice. I had no trouble at all finding exactly what I was looking for. Let’s check out what I found.
I love this set. works well with many table setting styles. So beautiful, So natural looking. Rustic and earthy and yet sofisticated. Sturdy and very well made.These will be a part of our family dining experience for a long time.
Weaving nature’s treasures with aesthetic grace, Liem Hauw crafts this handsome set of table runner and four placemats. He combines threads obtained from fragrant roots with white cotton threads, preserving the subtle cedar-like aroma of the natural fibers.
An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
“My name is Liem Hauw and I was born on August 31, 1969 in Java. I started to work in 1995 after university, in some residential projects and hotels. I began by opening an art workshop in Bali. I work with textiles made from natural materials such as fragrant root, sea grass, water hyacinth, and many others. Maybe God had planned this way of life for me. My works became recognized and I started to make on my own curtains, blinds, floor mats, mosquito nets, cushions, table runners, etc. Now I also craft frames, vases, baskets, and lamps by weaving banana bark, sea grass, and others. I work in metal as well.
“We work as a team consisting of seven people working actively, as well as my wife and a few more people from my neighborhood. Our products have been recognized in the USA, Europe, Australia, Japan, and South Africa. I keep thinking about expanding my work by creating new designs.”
