I chose a spice color to bring out the spice color in my new dining room rug. What I wasn't expecting was the heaviness of the scarf. With the black-out backing .....on a scarf?....it was very heavy. I didn't like the weight and don't feel like a scarf should have backing, but it looks nice in the room
After finally receiving the order that seemed to take forever to get here, it was not the color described. I ordered the color Merlot. Merlot was not the color of swag when it finally arrived. The color was a deep burnt orange. Very heavy nice fabric. I picture Merlot as the color of deep wine or even dark cranberry. This color was in the group of the rust, orange family. Very 70's looking in color. Picture anaconda green, crimson gold, and rusty orange :( Although, it was excellent quality. D
I LIKE THE SCARF, BUT BE AWARE THAT IT IS HEAVY/THE FABRIC IS NOT LIGHT WEIGHT AT ALL. HOWEVER, IT DID BRIGHTEN UP THE ROOM. THE COLOR WAS NICE, BUT I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO ZOOM IN ON THE COLOR OF MY CHOICE, TO HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT I WAS ACTUALLY GETTING.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? THE COLOR WAS GOOD BUT IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU COULD VIEW THE PARTICULAR COLOR THAT YOU WANT IN THE OVERALL PICTURE. YOU TAKE A CHANCE WITH THE COLOR, BECAUSE YOU ONLY HAVE A SMALL PICTURE TO VIEW, WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO ZOOM IN.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. IT WAS MORE THAN LONG ENOUGH. I WAS A LITTLE SURPRISED WITH THE WEGHT OF THE SCARF.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? NOT DEAD ON, BECAUSE OF THE TEXTURE AND WEIGHT.
The product is great and exactly what I was looking for. Nice quality and lovely color. Its perfect in our home office. The complaint I have was that the color swatch was not on the website. I had been looking for so long for a scarfin department stores and retail outlets all over that I was will to take a chance on a color name only. i.e. I had nothing to go by but the name of the color. The glitch may be fixed by now but at the time, I bought sight unseen -- fortunately the risk I took had a positive outcome. Overall, I am extremely satisfied.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent -- heavierweight than your average scarf...which was a nice surprise and beneft. The weight helps the scarf to hang perfectly.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? With regard to the description of the fabric and look it was an accurate description. However, Overstock did not have the color swatch online for me to look at. I took a leaf of faith and with fingers crossed ordered the color. -- a real gamble but it paid off.
