Novica Mother’s Day $40 Gift Code Giveaway

untitled Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you found that extra special gift for your Mom? Novica sent me two $4o Gift Codes so I could check out their beautiful artisan crafted Mother’s Day gift ideas. I used one for myself and one of y’all will win the other one. If ya haven’t heard of Novica let me tell you a little about them. They are associated with National Geographic. This team finds artisans from around the world and helps them sell there beautiful handmade items. This helps the artisans make money to support their families. When you purchase a product from Novica you will receive a card that tells you about the artist that created your gift. This lets people understand the diversity of the world we live in and makes your gift so much more personal.

Check out what I ordered:

Silk batik scarf, ‘Carnations’p133197_2

Really beautiful, light, exquisite. Designed by artisan Yuni Kristina of Java. How amazing is that. Shop the world and help support families from around the globe with Novica. Be sure to read Yuni’s story below.

Floral motifs evoke red carnations that bloom on cool beige silk. Peacocks fly amid the blossoms in a traditional Javanese design known as suwiri merak. Demonstrating her mastery of batik, Yuni Kristina creates a scarf of exquisite elegance.

a5981_3Yuni Kristina

“I learned the art of batik when I was very young, since my mother is a batik artist in Java. She has been making batik at home for 23 years, while waiting each day for my father – a fisherman – to come home from the sea. As you can imagine, batik is a part of my life. I started experimenting with the technique when I was 13 years old, with mori textiles. Now I’ve learned to create different motifs and to work with other materials, such as silk. My mother still helps me a lot.
“My mother is my inspiration. She and I still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. My husband Rieckey also helps me a lot because he knows what people like abroad, and then I can focus on creating. I would like the batik of Bali to become well known around the world, since its beauty is outstanding.”
