I'm an artist/illustrator drawn to anything that even slightly resembles rainbows or paintboxes, so when I saw this colorful scarf, my eyes glazed over and my head started drifting toward the monitor like a mosquito toward a bug zapper. I ordered it immediately.
1) The tag says: 100% silk. Made in India. Dry clean only. 28" x 80."
2) The fabric feels just okay, not amazing. There is definitely a front side (bold) and a back side (lighter and shows dye lines). It's a finer weave than I expected; Not a scarf to wear for warmth.
3) The squares are about a quarter inch bigger than I expected, and they do look like a paintbox, which is great! The print is really interesting but has some flaws: A) There are black and red-orange ink drips all over the scarf, but they're mostly toward the outer edges, so if I fold them in they won't be as noticeable, and B) The white lines are missing where the print repeats. You can see both of these flaws in the photos and decide for yourself whether this is a deal breaker- for me it wasn't. I'm probably going to spill coffee on it sooner or later anyway, and the print is busy enough that the missing white lines are something only neurotic people such as myself will notice.
4) This scarf will go with almost all of my coats and jackets- denim, navy quilted down, black puffy down, brown leather, and cream-colored safari, not mention it will look great with blazers and look quirky with printed shirts.
Overall, the quality of this scarf is not outstandingl- it's the kind of quality you could find at any tourist cart at Faneuil Hall. But that print is so interesting and hard to find, and that's the reason I'll be keeping it.
Hope this helps!

Beautiful! This scarf has every color imaginable and the outfit possibilities with it are endless! Lightweight, not a scarf to be worn if you want to keep warm but more to dress up an outfit and add some pops of color. Can easily be wrapped around the neck or worn as a shawl. I don't see this lasting long!

This scarf is gorgeous. There is nothing in your closet that this won't go with. It is very delicate and does require dry cleaning. Those are the only real draw backs. I think the gorgeous colors make up for it. I do love that it is very long scarf. I am 5'6 and when I wrap it around my neck it, the tips hit my waist which is perfect.
