"Fabulous Rich Color and Design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Thank you to the Nu Kem Association of Textile Artisans for this stunning shawl. The richness of the color and design is a frame-able masterpiece that will grace my neck and shoulders. A stand alone beauty that will make any outfit I wear all the more lovely. The weave is so delicate. I love the fringe. I am grateful to be able to afford to buy such a treasure.
