The pashmina advertised is a beautiful dusty purple shade - what I received could more or less be called "maroon". Not happy at all with the color - luckily I do love the wonderful quality and the shade IS very lovely if one is looking for a deeper shade. Sadly, the previous pashmina that I purchased from the same seller was very off in color as well (ordered grey - received deep steel blue. I am 27 and not color blind yet. Won't be doing business with them anymore. But if you are looking for a very well made soft pashmina this one is ideal.
