Featured Reviews on African Women's Accessories
By Ellen M
I bought both styles and am so happy I did.
These are very effective and comfortable which makes our challenge with the COVID-19 virus more acceptable. The fabric pattern on mine is different but just as attractive. I hand was mine with mild detergent, air dry them, and use my clothes steamer or steam iron on them. I have not had any facial irritation with these as I had with some of my other masks.
BEAUTIFUL, ARTISAN MADE FAN
Dear Ali, I wanted to tell you and Novica customers how very pleased I am with this fan. It is so colorful and well made. I have a collection of Novica West African collectibles and I am displaying your fan as well. Thanks Novica for your excellent packaging.
