"Beautiful Ruana!"

This is a beautiful, finely crafted wrap. It is much lovelier than the picture. This is the work of a real artisan. I am so glad that I decided to make this purchase.

"great colors and fabric"

I wear this often in the car when I go early in the morning. It is a heavier weight and doesnt snag my earrings as it is tightly woven. Love the color, very flattering and the coral stripe gives it warmth and sensuality. I am blonde and this looks amazing on me, especially with a coral colored lipstick.

"Beautiful, well made. Color not true to photo"

I was expecting a sand beige color as shown, but the actual color is darker, a light brown much like a cardboard box. Love that it is a wool blend so I can home wash on gentle cycle instead of dry clean. Very heavy and warm. Will go with many outfits despite the darker color.
