    What a beautiful cardigan! It is lined and closes with hooks and eyes, so you can leave it open if you want. Such a beatiful pattern with embroidery and beads. I love it! I plan to carry it on the plane so I will give a nice presentation when I arrive for business. I purchased the beige version.

    Service and delivery were most satisfactory, but the product was very disappointing. The picture of the Indian Iris Cardigan shows an elegant sweater. but the one I received was as my daughter put it, "Cheap looking." The beaded neckline looked unfinished as it was pieced together with two separate pieces down the front so it didn't have the flowing lines as pictured. Also, the cardigan was 70% bamboo/30% cotton and not the cotton/nylon blend with spandex as described. The picture does show facing at the neckline, but does not say the garment is fully lined. How can you "feel the luxuriously soft cardigan?" It cost $5.84 to return the cardigan and $13.95 postage & handling, and I have nothing except a bad experience.

    Comments about Indian Iris Cardigan:

    I ordered both the black and beige cardigans and much preferred the black one. The description stated that it ran slightly large but I found it true to size and should have ordered a larger size but it's OK if I don't try to layer it. It has some tastefully applied beads that aren't apparent in the photo. The workmanship is excellent. I will use it for more dressy occasions but it would be fine for a professional office setting.

              I bought the natural coloured one.
              Fit is generous, sleeves are too long & need to be cuffed.
              Sweater is very soft & luxurious.
              Excellent value.

              Can be dressed up or down.
              Very pleased with this purchase as with previous purchases from NG.

                  The “four o’clock flower” is a type of mirabilis, known for blooming late in the day. It originated in tropical South America, but today this hardy bloom is found everywhere from Pakistan to China to the midwestern U.S. prairies.

                  The Guaraní people are an indigenous cultural group who live in Paraguay and parts of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Bolivia. Before European contact, the seminomadic culture didn’t have a written language. The pattern on this lightweight alpaca cardigan is taken from a pictogram for water found on textiles in the Guaraní Museum of Bolivia. The 3/4-sleeve design features a hand-crocheted border and resin buttons.

                  Using pearls to represent purity and garnet to represent passion, Indian artisan Narayani creates a three-strand wristband bracelet meant to invoke the many facets of love. Legend tells that Indian warriors used garnet-tipped arrows to ensure deadly aim, but this fiery January birthstone has also been used for healing and protection in many cultures. In Hinduism pearls are associated with Lord Vishnu and known as the "queen of gems." Handcrafted sterling silver beads and toggle clasp.

                  This double-knit, 420 gram-per-square-meter Merino wool cardigan is smooth on the inside and looped on the outside for superior warmth retention and incredible comfort. It’s a perfect outer layer for autumn days, and a great middle layer under a coat. It’s also the right length to cover longer tunics and T-shirts, so you can wear a midweight jacket without inner layers peeking out. And it covers your rear view with tights or leggings, too. Semi-fit with flatlock seams, lined hood, double-slider front zipper, and zippered handwarmer pockets.

                  The Museo Amano in Lima, Peru, is home to lovely textiles by the pre-Columbian Chancay culture. A 3,000-year-old woven-gauze Chancay head cloth was the inspiration for this supersoft 100% baby alpaca cardigan. The delicate lacy knit features slightly flared sleeves and mother-of-pearl buttons. Hip length.

                  Artisans in both Belgrade and Blace, Serbia, make our cotton cardigan with allover floral patterns inspired by the embroidered skirts and aprons (called pregace) of Serbian folk costume. It was not uncommon for women in rural villages to wear traditional dress every day as recently as the 1980s.
