this throw had a very beautiful pattern and you could tell a lot of work went into making it, however there were some irregularities that i was not expecting. of course when something is handmade this should be expected, but not in the most obvious places such as the center. also, when i received the throw directly from the merchant with whom overstock deals with, i did research and found that the throw was listed on the merchants site as irregular (they also had ones in prestine condition for less than the price i paid on overstock) but overstock did not mention this - so i felt misled and a little deceived, which was disappointing because i usually love the products and trust the quality. overall though, the throw was beautiful and i decided to keep it because i didn't want to go trhough the hassle of returning it (for a shipping fee, etc..)
This vivid blue throw was billed has having lots of detail; it was so artful and beautiful that loops had been provided to hang as a wall hanging; a work of art if you will. When the throw arrived it looked like someone had down the detail work on a sewing machine in a zigzag pattern of different colors of blue thread for most of the throw with a very small representation of the flowers shown in the picture. It had a curious odor as well. I was left no choice but to return it as it did not fit into the bedroom scheme without the detail it was billed to have. I am very unhappy because I thought this was the perfect find.
This item is very beautiful...it's very dark, but it depends on how sunny the room is...if a lot of light, it looks less darker... It is not very big...it goes well on a loveseat sofa, for instance. Or a large armchair... It is thin and has a black second layer on the back that covers all the sowing...it looks like it's made of smaller pieces sown together. It looks really good!
Color was fab. It is hard to find the nice deep blues in stores. It was a little smaller than I anticipated but I did not measure, shame on me. I was going to use it as an accent piece for the queen bed but it was too small so I ended up using it on a chair. Only complaint is the tabs that are attached so you can hang it if desired. I will have to sew them down or cut them off since it is not what I would ever use it for. And, I think someone mentioned a smell to the fabric? I did not notice anything unpleasant.
Beautiful and will look great as an accent on my couch this fall. Great thick sturdy quality material. Doesn't feel cheap at all. Only problem is that there is an odor to it. I will wash it and hopefully it will come out. Would recommend. Looks gorgeous!
The design is very good, but I can't imagine wrapping myself in anything that smells this bad. You need to air it out. I am not sure if it will stand up to dry cleaning. I am using this as a table cloth. It looks very good. Lots of comments. This is a fine ethnic creation. Use your imagination.
