"Beautiful"

This shawl does look very much like the colors in picture. It is lightweight but not transparent. The many colors and batik artwork are beautiful.

"Spring Essence"

Beautifully done! Nice and lightweight lovely spring colors. Looks great with any outfit . Good representation of the colors in the picture so you get what you ordered and not something different. Enjoy the little card and picture. Cute bag for packaging too! Appreciate items that are unique and not made here and you won?t see it on someone going down the street.

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.
