Featured Reviews on Central American Women's Shawls
This wrap is a perfect size and weight for adding a little warmth on a cool evening or early morning. The quality is superb, the weaving is tight and smooth, the colors are so lovely and it wash s up beautifully - colors don t fade and the fringe doesn t tangle. It hangs dry nicely and irons easily. I really love it! I made this purchase after buying a scarf from this same group of artists because I was so impressed by their work.
The colors are far more vibrant than you see here. I bought this as a birthday gift for a good friend, and she loved it. Might have to get one for myself, as it s so unique and beautiful.
Received my shawl today and the work is beautiful. Impeccable craftsmanship by Yolanda and Antonia Panjoj. Thank you!
