"Fabuous Colors"

This shawl is so bright, vibrant, and inspiring of joy. It goes with many colors and is a great shawl to carry on a trip. You can make your whole outfit look extra special with this scarf. My husband took some great photos of me while wearing the scarf on vacation. Great for those days when you need something to take away a mild chill in the air and its not necessary to have a heavy wool. Love this scarf. Thank you Elena.

"Very different color scheme"

The quality of the scarf is quite good. What I think Novica needs to do better is be very clear in their descriptions of potentially significant color differences. I bought this as a summer scarf. The colors used in the scarf I received were very different. The color palette of the scarf I received makes it more of a fall/winter scarf. At first I thought they sent me the wrong product. Then I looked and saw where some blues had been replaced with dark greens and browns had been introduced; still, it was the same pattern.Im not returning it because I dont think this is the artists fault. Its a poor job of warning buyers that they may get something very different from what they think theyr getting.
