I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my grandmother, a fashionable woman who has everything and of top quality. When I received it, I immediately tried it on and had to overcome my strong desire to keep it for myself. The material and workmanship was top class. I also liked that I supported an organization that helps tribes in I think, Peru sell their locally and uniquely made products. Truely an impressive piece that will fit larger or slim sized ladies of all ages. I would not recommend it for shorter ladies though that would be my own personal opinion and fashion sense only.
