The pashmina advertised is a beautiful dusty purple shade - what I received could more or less be called "maroon". Not happy at all with the color - luckily I do love the wonderful quality and the shade IS very lovely if one is looking for a deeper shade. Sadly, the previous pashmina that I purchased from the same seller was very off in color as well (ordered grey - received deep steel blue. I am 27 and not color blind yet. Won't be doing business with them anymore. But if you are looking for a very well made soft pashmina this one is ideal.
Would you recommend this to a friend? No

I bought this because I find bamboo fabric very soft and well-wearing. The colour has more red than the photo, but this was a plus for me. So imagine a less-purple color than pictured. Will go well with a navy, brown, black, grey even a dark red colored coat or jacket. I love it. Also the price was ridiculously low for this quality an item ($*.**).
This is a pretty scarf, and it is very soft. However, the product description says "100% rayon from bamboo" and the tag on the actual item says "55% Acrylic 45% Viscose"
I believe Viscose and Rayon are interchangeable, but Acrylic and Rayon are most certainly not.
The fiber content and the price are the main reasons I ordered this scarf as a gift. I thought it was a much better value than the 100% Acrylic ones I was seeing at department stores, but it turns out the description was misleading.
I think it will still make a good gift and it was very affordable, but I am disappointed that I didn't not get the product I expected.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly the same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Average
I expected to get a lilac or lavender pashmina such as the one pictured. This is a deep eggplant; quite a somber color. The quality of the material, however, is outstanding, it is part silk. It is very soft to the touch and it has a jacquard look to it....it is hard to see but there is a same-color design in the material..this subtle design is understated and beautiful. The sizing seems to be a bit off. For the price it is a really good deal and I would recommend the quality to a friend and warn them not to be surprised when they get a totally different color.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was way off. It a deep eggplant.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The material is very soft
Well darn.....I thought this would be an exact match, as my outfit needed a solid colored lavender scarf. BUT-- when it arrived it was much more pink... just like a "magenta" colored crayon! Have to send it back.....
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is much more like magenta, it's pinker, than lavender. Not as purple as the photo!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is great.
The product itself: it wasn't exactly like this picture, which was disappointing as this was the type of scarf I wanted.
Shipping the product: the estimated delivery date was way off the mark. This was to be a gift for a co-worker, and when I contacted the shipper (not the courier), it was two days before the event of the gift exchange. Fortunately, I had purchased alternative gifts for this coworker. I was not pleased.
I got this for a dear friend for Christmas. She absolutely loved it! I am sure if I need another gift these are a great buy for the lady friends we have. I almost got myself one when I saw it. But it was not time for me to shop for myself so maybe later when the holiday bills are paid I can get myself one!
