"Another beautiful combo"

The beautiful, iridescent colors will make any outfit sparkle! The "forest" pictured ended up more an aqua blue than a true green, but I have things in that color I didn't mind. Sadly, one of the threads caught the second time I wore it and there's now a small hole- I hope it can be repaired!

Dora

Although the scarf is too short for what I need, I will still use it. It is beautiful.

Gabriella

I have just received the Pink Glory shawl and I am delighted with it. The packaging itself was beautiful, but the only word for the shawl is 'ravishing'. It is a splendid shawl. The only downside is that now my sister wants to steal it!

I love my new Varanasi silk shawl, 'Paisley Dusk'! The design and weaving are so fine and it is a delight to wear. Thank you.
