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.
I like to keep "spare" gifts on hand so I am never caught off guard if someone gifts me unexpectedly. It's a horrible feeling to be empty-handed. This is now my stand-by for good female pals or work-related folks who appreciate the finer things (without me spending a million bucks.) Great gift box and NOVICA gifts always seem more personal and pulled together. As noted, you will not spend anything to wrap it, as the gift box is well made, distinctive and pretty. It comes with a detailed card on the person who created it initially and has info on cleaning and storage. The box I received was a ruby red box (lid) with black base - both fabric and the scarf was folded very carefully and thoughtfully. The interior designer who provides our business with a lot of work is extremely detailed and focused on quality. SHE RAVED ABOUT THIS SCARF! Photos are true to color to what I expected and would probably favor someone fair-skinned with green or hazel eyes but would look gorgeous on an olive-skinned maiden or persons with more dramatic coloring. Different, unique and great presentation! No one will be disappointed! Perfect again, OH-verstock!
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.
