"Absolutely stunning!"

This is a wonderfully crafted shall with a beautiful color scheme and is amazingly warm. I leave it at work as I run cold and drape it over my semi-professional wear all times of year. I receive many compliments. I would totally recommend!

I had been to Arequipa back in 1989, but this is the first time I am luck to have purchased such a finely crafted product from that region of Peru.

"Gorgeous, warm and full of character"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the third shawl Ive bought made by this artist...They are stunningly beautiful, practical and warm... Each color palette has its own character and the subtle variations in the weave are gorgeous. I live in a bitterly cold winter climate so appreciate the lightweight warmth these shawls provide, combined with the elegance of the colors and patterns...
