They are launching its NOVICA: UNDISCOVERED “Magical Mexico” quarterly customizable subscription box (Summer edition) to deliver handmade, Fairtradetreasures.
Novica Undiscovered Magical Mexico
NOVICA is unveiling its newest quarterly subscription called the “Undiscovered”, the first-ever fully-customizable subscription that delivers 100% handmade and Fairtrade artisan treasures from a specific region. NOVICA’s new “Undiscovered” Box is a seasonal, quarterly box that lets you travel to a new nation by experiencing its sacred gems and preserves disappearing arts in countries around the world by showcasing hidden craft skills passed down through generations.
The new Summer 2022 box is themed UNDISCOVERED: MAGICAL MEXICO! Unlike any other subscription box in the marketplace, customers can select their most beloved (5) products from a highly curated selection, including gender-neutral options ranging from gifts, jewellery and accessories to décor. Each new box is carefully curated with the help of a local Artisan Guide — a master artisan chosen from that country — which beautifully spotlights undiscovered local artisans and helps to curate a meaningful selection of handmade goods to represent the region.
As a bonus, the featured Artisan Guide will include meaningful surprises, such as a favourite local recipe, intriguing behind-the-scenes stories, a hand-signed postcard, insider travel tips, and more. Each seasonal box has a value of over $200, with a Retail Price of only $59.99 and is available from May 15 – August 15 at https://undiscovered-artisan-box.com.

“Talavera Shots” Ceramic Cups

“Anahuac Feathers” Earrings
These handmade FaFairtradeerling silver earrings feature tiny local flowers, dried and preserved in clear resin. Anahuac is the ancient Aztec name for the valley we now know as Mexico City. The Del Toro family lives on the northeastern edge of that valley, creating sterling silver jewellery by hand for NOVICA.
“Alebrije Cat” Sculpture
This cute little FaiFairtradelpture is a delightful example of alebrije art, carved from copal wood and intricately painted by hand. Alebrijes are now a popular art form in Oaxaca, Mexico. This alebrije cat is handmade for NOVICA by artisans Jesus and Roxana Hernandez.

A boldly whimsical Mexican interpretation of blue and white majolica ceramics, this little jewellery box is designed to hold tiny treasures by the Contreras Family.
Embroidered Cotton Cushion Cover “Blue Tenango”
Tenango is one of Mexico’s most widely recognized embroidery styles, but few people know it is from a small town called Tenango de Doria, Hidalgo, an Otomi community. Guadalupe Navarro is an excellent example of traditional embroidery motifs focusing on local plants and animals. The reverse side is solid ivory with zipper closure.
Hand Woven All Cotton Rebozo in Blue and Off-White “Oaxacan Rhythm in Sapphire”
Whether it is used for warmth, fashion, or practical purposes like carrying bundles, the rebozo has long existed in Mexican life. Find your uses for this versatile shawl from Delfina Ruiz in Mexico. In off-white and sapphire blue, the rebozo is hand woven on a traditional loom using cotton threads tinted with all-natural dyes. Long, elegant hand-knotted fringe completes the conventional design.

And much more.
