Keepers of the Arts - Central American Bohemian Gifts
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.
This is a very high quality, expertly woven 'double' sized hammock. By double I mean that you can lay asymetrically across it due to it's width. It is absolutely beautiful, expertly woven and unique with the orange/cream bulico interweaving. It's hanging in my master bedroom and is so comfortable that I've been sleeping on it every night. Nicaragua, particularly the town of Masaya, is world famous for quality hammocks. There is nothing in the world to equal them for style, quality and comfort. I'm very happy that Novica is carrying these beautiful hammocks! Thank you, Mirna!
I saw this type of hammock everywhere in Costa Rica but the ones sold there where not the same. I asked the people that had them (mostly restaurant and resort owners) and was told they come from Nicaragua. The Novica web site was the best selection and price i found and the order placed on the internet went smoothly. I gave it to my father & it now hangs at the family cabin!
