A perfect transaction. A great scarf at a good price. I would buy from this seller again, for sure.

Everything about this scarf is amazing! The seller was friendly and accommodating. The scarf itself is lightweight and cool (which is perfect for my desired use of headwraping) soft and textured, true to the colors of the picture and it came without any funky smells or anything. It just smells fresh like it hasn't been sitting too long but with no fragrance or anything. I bought a different raw silk item from a different seller in the past that had some strong fragrance that I haven't been able to remove so the scentlessness was a huge plus. Truly special item. Plotting my next purchase.

Absolutely stunning quality and colors on this raw silk scarf from Madagascar. Good price for the quality and length. Was shipped and arrived super quickly. Also - the friendly, communicative seller answered questions quickly and provided plenty of information about their fair-trade project. THANK YOU. Delighted.

It's simply gorgeous. It arrived as quickly as could be what with postal slowdowns due to Covid. Seller shipped quickly so no fault of theirs. Love this scarf!
