The square shape of this decorative box is handcrafted of tin and elaborated with patterned motifs for an excellent addition to your home. Mexican duo Aida and Cristino Lavariega present the box, given a rustic finish. A clear glass panel accentuates the lid, which lifts open with a hinge.
Aida uses traditional techniques taught by elder members of the community and passes down her knowledge to her children in order to continue creating crafts out of culturally significant materials.
Novica sales provide Aida with a steady income that has enabled her to grow her workshop. She is able to support not only her own family but to provide steady wages to her assistants, enabling them to support themselves and their families.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Aida's income supports and provides for the education of her sons who are attending University.
I previously purchased the matching Tin Picture Frame and loved it....so i knew this would be as spectacular! I did NOT disappoint! The craftsmanship is wonderful and costs far less that i imagine it would in Mexico.
