"Beautiful"

This shawl does look very much like the colors in picture. It is lightweight but not transparent. The many colors and batik artwork are beautiful.

"Spring Essence"

Beautifully done! Nice and lightweight lovely spring colors. Looks great with any outfit . Good representation of the colors in the picture so you get what you ordered and not something different. Enjoy the little card and picture. Cute bag for packaging too! Appreciate items that are unique and not made here and you won?t see it on someone going down the street.

"Beautiful but not the right colors for me"

This a lovely combination of colors and patterns in a very light weight silk. Unfortunately, it didnt complement the intended outfit and I returned it. The return process was easy and efficient- thank you Novica :)

"Absolutely fabulous!!"

Thank you so much, Yuni, for this gorgeous piece of wearable art! The colors are stunning and the weight of the scarf is perfect for year-round wear. This piece is delicate, hangs beautifully, and finishes an outfit (casual or more formal). This is something I will keep forever.
