This scarf is absolutely beautiful. After purchasing it, I looked up "backstrap looming" and was amazed at the time and skill it takes to make these scarves. It is well worth the money. I also love that this item is part of the "fair trade" association. I feel in a small way I am helping people by purchasing this scarf.Read More
Rich coloring that was accurate to the description. Seems to be well crafted. A little shorter than I expected but will work out.Read More
I just received this scarf along with the seafoam color. Both are exceptional. I would have preferred them bit wider, as they are slightly narrow as scarves go.. The length is adequate, not too long. I just ordered the other colors because I will regret not doing so once they sell out. Even though they are smaller in size, these scarves make a bold statement by their quality, color and texture. Definitely a keeper.Read More
