This bright red and gold and saffron shawl is instantly among my favorite accessories. It just shouts the mysterious beauty and glory of all artistic things India! The jamawar style pattern in a rich gold and saffron is elegant and detailed and I love the bright warm red of the wrap. Dress it up for a wedding or wear casually for a night on the town--this is a statement piece, bold and stunning.
I was nervous about the colour before it arrived. Would it be the bright red (of the picture) or a darker shade (as indicated by another reviewer)? As soon as I opened the parcel I was relieved. It is a gorgeous shade of red. Definitely darker than what it seems online, which is much more suitable for pale skin! At first I thought this would was too big (I'm a size 6/8 and not too tall). But, actually, it is perfect. It's a one size fits all and drapes beautifully when you wrap one side over your shoulder. Hanging straight down though it may be a bit too long for me, but I would wear it draped anyway, so no issue. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece. I really love it. My only negative is that it's a little bit itchy. It's also quite heavy, but not too heavy. I imagine switching between wearing a long winter coat and this as it is very warm and provides lots of coverage. I think this would be beautiful in a cream colour! I think this would make a beautiful gift.
Very fast delivery wrapped very nice ready to take to my party. Will be ordering again !!!! Barbara
