Embroidered Paisley Shawls
I'm buying this shawl for the second time, because I ruined the first one by washing it in hot water and then drying it in the drying machine. Don't do that - hand wash it in cold water and then let it air dry. The embroidery is stunning - beautiful color, detailed and covers almost all of the shawl. I've been getting a lot of compliments and I love it!
This is definitely a handmade product, and the artist's love/attention to detail is evident in its beauty. I receive numerous compliments every time I wear it. Simply superb!
It's not as shiny as I thought it was. I thought there would be some shiny gold thread in it because of the photograph. The shawl has a nice matte finish with no sheen which makes it more appropriate to go with day wear or casual evening wear. Extremely well made. Looking forward to wearing it in the fall.
