"I just had the Guatamalan wheat shawl delivered, and I am so disappointed with it. First of all, it is supposed to be made of cotton, but it's texture and look is closer to burlap. The tassels are all tangled because the fibers are not soft. It came extremely wrinkled, and doesn't flow the way the shawl in the picture portrays it. Also, It was a Christmas gift and it took 3 weeks to get here from when I ordered it. Way too long! How do I return it and get my money back?"

Story Behind the Art:
'My story is really the story of my whole family, beginningwith my parents,' says Guatemala's Luisa Villavicencio. 'My fatherwas passionate about growing cotton, a crop that originated withthe Maya. We work with only three pure colors. Apart from the crudecotton color, we use a seed known as ixcaco that produces brown cotton. We call our third colorjade. All the rest of our colors are a result of combining fibersand threads from these three when weaving the fabric.'
