Indigenous Artist Made

Socially Responsible Manufacturing

Artisans in the developing world lack access to the global economy. Novica works to employ artisans and preserve their culture around the world, while providing meaningful access to global markets. Many artisans live in rural communities and don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. Novica gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale while preserving indigenous culture and artistry. Since 1999, over $88M has been sent to indigenous artisans and all products are produced under fair trade standards.

Your purchase today ensures artisans in the developing world have a better tomorrow.

Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. This checkers set is beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.

The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First, they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen.  Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft and because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.
