Details

Edward Adeniran of Ghana says, "Orumila is one of the local gods in the western part of Nigeria. The people pour libations to the god Orunmila for fertility."

“Indeed, Novica has been my love at first sight.

“Twenty years ago I joined this prestigious company full of opportunities. In the beginning, I struggled a lot with my replenishment and with cracks in my paintings. I came to realize that Novica is an institution that seeks not only to sell my products but also to train me as to how to come up with designs and better ways of improving on the quality of my works. With time, the local team here in Ghana guided me as to how to replenishment my pieces and to avoid cracks in my work. I must say it wasn't easy at all. For a long time I stopped replenishing my stock and started producing my designs as unique pieces. With the knowledge I acquired on replenishment now I have started replenishing my stock. Novica has also taught me how to work with ease better than in the beginning. I have also found a better way of priming my canvas to avoid cracks. Another improvement I have seen is in the speed with which I work.

“Initially I was based in Nigeria, but with time I have been able to move to Ghana with my business. I have been able to widen my scope with the number of people I have taught. I have taught over a 100 pupils. Aside from the pupils I have trained, I have also trained my daughter Cecilia and son Bright, as well as my wife, Oluwayemisi, who are all now working with Novica. I also train students from various secondary schools offering art. Specifically, I teach batik tie-dye techniques.

“Novica has greatly affected my life. Aside from the pride of being part of such a prestigious group, it has also helped me attain certain goals. An example of one is my present accommodation, which was a result of the funds I received from selling my products with Novica.

“Nineteen years ago, I received a letter of recognition for being the best-selling wall hanging artisan and for my intense involvement in the art business as well as my ability to impact knowledge. My way of giving back to Novica is to introduce more artisans for those artisans to also have a feel of the fruits of Novica. My goal is to introduce artisans from the sub-regions, such as Togo, Nigeria, Ghana and Burkina Faso.”

Original Artisan Story

"Born to a Ghanaian mother and a Nigerian father on November 16, 1967, I began drawing at a very tender age, whatever I set my eyes on. What I fancied most, however, was copying pictures of historical figures like Sir Charles MacLean, Guggisberg, and Macarthy, which I found in the history book. Fine Arts was one of the subjects I sat for at the Ordinary Level (middle school) in 1979. Between 1988 and 1990, I sat for the Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and for the Higher National Diploma (HND) in 1995 at the Polytechnic University. I specialized in painting with textile as a subsidiary."

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
