    Beautiful, warm, quality garment.

    Posted by Dorothy on Feb 2nd 2019

    This is a high quality garment in every way. The tweed fabric is lovely and the finished edges are first rate. The length in the back really nice and the overall drape is very flattering. I bought this for a friend who wears a synthetic fleece ruana and thought it was warm enough. She is delighted with everything about this wrap, especially the extra warmth!

    Lovely and well made

    What a beautiful ruana this is. It looks great with jeans, but also elegant enough to wear for dress. Warm and cozy. I love the hand written note from the postcard from the artisan and the beautiful wrapping.

    Perfect

    Posted by Linda on Oct 2nd 2018

    This gorgeous ruana just arrived and timing is perfect. I am 5'8" tall and it wraps around me like a wonderful blanket. The length is really just what I want. Not too heavy, but warm. I'll be traveling this fall and winter and it will be right beside me in the car for when I have to get out and face weather. It is every bit as good as described. Thanks so much for such a great product.

    Earthy Medium Brown Toned Warm Wrap

    Posted by Serenity on Jul 30th 2018

    This is wrap is very comfortable and easy to just throw over your shoulders anywhere or time you want to stay warm. I feels a bit heavy weight from the abundant use if fabric. The fabric has a soft sweater texture. It does have a grey color hint mixed in the medium brown tone to give off a tweed effect.

    Fabulous wrap

    Posted by Lauren on Mar 1st 2017

    This was exactly the size, the texture, and weight I was hoping for. This will be a favorite of mine for a long long time. I will be travelling with it this weekend. I live in Florida and when I travel North this will be the first item I pack or carry on the plane.

    Lovely practical wrap

    Posted by Diane on Nov 1st 2016

    This is a beautifully made ruana that is perfect for wrapping yourself up in to read a book, watch a movie or browse the internet. I've also thrown it over my casual wear to take the dogs for hike or just go out and get the mail on a cold day. It has an almost medieval monastic quality that I really like as I'm not a flashy dresser.

    Love Love Love This

    Posted by Stephanie on Jun 22nd 2016

    One of the best items I have ever purchased anywhere - a signature piece of clothing. Surprisingly lightweight, warm, versatile; dramatic but not pretentious. I'm 5'10" and wear an XL t-shirt and it completely envelops me, yet it also looks great on smaller friends. It is long enough to double as a blanket in a pinch. Because the quality is so nice and because I smoke cigarettes, I was afraid to wear it for several months, thinking I would just wear it for special occasions, but once I started wearing it, I never stopped. It does not absorb odors very much and does not have to be washed frequently. This would be a great item to carry while traveling. I carry it everywhere I go - it folds up small enough to do that. If I could afford it, everyone I love would own one of these beautiful wraps! Thank you for your craftsmanship!
