I love this belt. Great conversation starter. People are intrigued by the construction of the belt. Who would have thought bottle tops could make a fashion statement. GREAT GIFT IDEA.

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.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Every purchase from this artist has a profound impact on their livelihood and income.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Neide has been featured in TV shows and magazines in Brazil and abroad.

This Product is awarded the Earth Friendly badge because it uses recycled or sustainable materials or techniques.
