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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
