The Java Starlight shawl in silk is just gorgeous! It is a feast for the eyes with the deep blues and intricate design. Made in a soft, luxurious silk, it truly dazzles. It is at least as beautiful as the picture shows it and everything I had hoped it would be. Many thanks for this amazing piece of art. I will wear it often!

Loved the shawl!Outstanding quality and attention to detail. Colors are beautiful and vibrant without being too ""loud"". Packaging was equally beautiful and actually can be used for storing the shawl.
