Keepers of the Arts - Wrap Gifts
I have used this light weight scarf many many times. It goes with so many things and is easy to just drape around my neck. A lovely addition to many outfits.
This is a gift for my sister for her birthday along with a purse...it will match perfectly...the craftsmanship is beautiful...I acatually bought one a few years ago in yellows and blues for my Mom and she loved it...
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.
