Fascinatingly BEAUTIFUL! This is my second purchase of this extraordinary weaving. The first is a different colorway, (the aqua, sea foam & nutmeg..it's wonderful) I am an artist, painter, colorist by birth, meaning Color comes naturally. Despite being an art teacher, I could never explain How I arrive at "seeing" color except for observing Nature. This scarf arrived today, it is around my neck as I type, then glance down and am lost in the beauty of the weaving of blues into a yellow ochre, paprika, mossy green floats to soft teal. The photographs are accurate, but cannot convey the complexity of the interplay of the weave. I'm in an old deep blue shirt over a paprika sweater. In other words, nothing "dressed up", it's 2am! Insomnia from pain due to recent disability, I shall never likely travel farther than another doctors appointment, I am Grateful to have a Connection with another artist, a woman with a joyful smile. I smile back to her and say "I Thank YOU" your talent and skill.
This scarf is awesome and so rich in colors that it takes me deep into a forest. I love the high quality and drape of this chenille textile made from bamboo rayon. It's exactly as pictured.
I am a weaver myself so I have great appreciation for the fine quality of this shawl with it?s pretty colors and fine workmanship. While I haven?t yet worn it since It just arrived a couple days ago, the shawl will be very useful, especially for transitional seasons. It has some weight and heft to it and should drape nicely. There are multiple ways to wear it and the colors are perfect for dressing up any outfit, not to mention adding a bit of warmth when needed. . I expect many compliments and will be happy to recommend the weaver who created this beautiful piece.
