Five hundred years ago, the most exquisite product of Kashmiri looms was the highly prized jamavar scarf. Jamavar weaving is among the most refined of Kashmiri designs and once was the mark of royalty and nobility in South Asia. This handwoven jamavar wool scarf uses a floral palette of lavender, fuchsia, geranium, and rose to render the classic Kashmiri design. Lightweight and 100% wool. Handmade in India.
The colors of the actual scarf has nothing to do with what is shown here, which shouldn't have done by NG, right? I tried to attach a picture here, but was not allowed by the software. I am putting the picture on the NG/NGS Facebook page. You can see it there and judge it yourself. It is as different as black and white and if you see the picture, you will see if it is an overstatement. This was supposed to be a gift for a friend. The gift box I ordered and was charged for was in a worse shape with 3 broken corners. I returned it all and not even received a full refund. Absolute disappointment from a beloved institution.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
i had my fingers crossed, but when i received it, i was more than satisfied.. it feels great to the touch, its length is great, good for many uses, and the colors and design are just awesome, of course it is a matter of personal preference.. all i can say it that it is just like u see it, even better.
Feels true to length
