Beautifully made handcrafted chenille scarf purchased as a gift. Love that Novica allows one to purchase items directly from the artist and encourages economic development as well as supports artists and craftspersons. The scarf is soft and luxurious. My only quibble is that the colors vary markedly from the picture. Rather than being purple and varied shades of blue, the item is all purple. It is still very nice, but the colors are not intense and varigated as shown. Although I realize that there can be variations, this item is completely different. Despite color, will order from Novica again....

Gave this as a gift to go with a navy blue shawl neck sweater. Looked great as I tucked the two together in their gift box. It made it extra special to know this purchase is also helping someone else. The person who made this fine scarf should know their pride in the craftmanship shines brightly. I was very pleased with my purchase. Note that it appears this scarf is the right weight to be worn year round.Read More
I am so in love with this scarf, and so glad I bought it. The colours are very vivid, it is lightweight but yet warm. The hand weaving is simply beautiful. This is a happy scarf, you cannot be in a bad mood when wearing all these bright colors. I think I will be buying more for gifts. It drapes beautifully, and being oblong you can wear it may ways. A great accessory to brighten up an otherwise plain outfit.Read More

This was a gift for my daughter-in-law's birthday, and was shipped directly to her. Since there was no giftwrap or gift card she was momentarily bewildered, but assumed it was from me, and loves it. The color is perfect for her and great for this time of year in a chilly climate.Read More
The color is exactly as printed on the ad...however, I was expecting a more winter/cold scarf and this is more of a summer scarf. My own fault...but still beautiful and highly recommend!Read More
Almost everyone who's reviewed this scarf has given it a "five-star". As far as the colors are concerned, it is 5-star. But it seems quite flimsy, and not very well-constructed to me. I've gotten much higher quality scarves for the same price from Novica. So I give it only 3-stars.Read More
