  • This hand-loomed scarf is beautiful!

    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.

  • narrow but what a find!

    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.
