Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

After being misdiagnosed with cancer, Neide Ambrosio was given only six months to live. She later found out that she actually had a severe version of TB and which was very dehabilitating. Fortunately, she recovered and continues to create her colorful eco-friendly handbags and accessories.

Neide originally worked alone in collecting soda pop-tops from the beach and selling her work. Today she has other people working with her and, during her first year with Novica, her sales increased almost tenfold.

Neide has other women helping her, some from favela neighborhoods. She has trained them all and they can earn an income while working from home, either crocheting, sewing or doing embroidery.

Neide Ambrosio has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1500 and the most recent for $600.

Neide received the award for the Most Socially Responsible Handbag in a contest located in New York City.

"Great recycling craft"

I'm a fan of Neide Ambrosio. I've purchased several of her products for my daughters. The colored pop-tops are the best, unfortunately they are not available. I wanted to replace this one with another because my daughter broke the zipper. I'll order it again when it comes back on sale.

"All Time Favorite Wristlet"

This wristlet made with soda pop tops will draw the attention of everyone wherever you go! It's eye-catching before people even realize from what it's made. Many a waitress, store clerk or random people have asked about this purse. I love sharing the story of Neide Ambrosio and how she is changing the lives of many women by making these wristlets! Make sure you get them in all colors! Great for casual or dressy occasions!
