"Lovely practical wrap"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautifully made ruana that is perfect for wrapping yourself up in to read a book, watch a movie or browse the internet. I've also thrown it over my casual wear to take the dogs for hike or just go out and get the mail on a cold day. It has an almost medieval monastic quality that I really like as I'm not a flashy dresser.

"Love Love Love This"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

One of the best items I have ever purchased anywhere - a signature piece of clothing. Surprisingly lightweight, warm, versatile; dramatic but not pretentious. I'm 5'10" and wear an XL t-shirt and it completely envelops me, yet it also looks great on smaller friends. It is long enough to double as a blanket in a pinch. Because the quality is so nice and because I smoke cigarettes, I was afraid to wear it for several months, thinking I would just wear it for special occasions, but once I started wearing it, I never stopped. It does not absorb odors very much and does not have to be washed frequently. This would be a great item to carry while traveling. I carry it everywhere I go - it folds up small enough to do that. If I could afford it, everyone I love would own one of these beautiful wraps! Thank you for your craftsmanship!

Best Uses

  • lightweight warmth, security blanket, dramatic yet humble look

"Always a Happy Choice"

Its a lightweight weave, which adds to its versatility -- Im always too hot in a sweater, but this piece over a pair of leggings always prompts positive comments. I bought another and another, every color and some replacements (just in case!).
