Komang's notebooks came so beautifully wrapped, that I almost didn't want to open them. Once I did, though, lovely earth fragrances greeted me and the vibrant colors and textures of these notebooks made me realize what a wonderful treasure I had discovered. My plan is to use them as scrapbooks for all the 'extras' that come with each item I've purchased from Novica (artists' stories, postcards, wrapping and ribbons). The craftmanship and artistic talent that went into designing these notebooks is breathtaking, and I plan to purchase more of Komang's books to share as gifts. Thank you, Komang, for notebooks that I will truly treasure!!!
A journal is where you record your most personal thoughts, feelings, and memories. That is why we were utterly delighted to find these gorgeous, handmade journals from Java and Bali, which we gave to our daughter for her 26th birthday. We had recently been shopping together when she uncharacteristically spontaneously picked up a leather, handmade journal at a Christmas Art Fair (at Union Square, NY) and exclaimed about how beautiful such an item was. Sensing that she liked that product type but that there was something less Victorian England and more 2000's World out there for here, I was blessed to find these gorgeous journals at Novica. She absolutely LOVES them, and I want to thank the amazingly talented artist who created these, and to let you know that she is so VERY HAPPY with this beautiful gift that your talents and skills made possible for her to enjoy. Thank you for sharing some of your amazing culture with our family! We will be looking for your products AGAIN!
"I never forget to give thanks each day for the life and family I have. They are so great and we work together, side by side, to create a better future for our children."
