"One of my favorite and most treasured scarves"
"Blossoming Opulence" is such a stunning work of art. This scarf is perfect in every which way: the fine quality silk used, the intricate floral motifs and the careful combination of colors all define the artist's meticulous attention to details. Aside from that, it came with a beautiful batik print cotton pouch for one to store this stunning scarf. What a great find! Thumbs up to this ingenious artist.
