To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I collect vintage scarves and have numerous Gucci, Hermes, Givenchy, and other silk scarves, so I've gotten pretty good at telling the fakes from the genuine ones.
Let me run down what a real one looks like, firstly:
1) 100% substantial-weight smooth, uniform, high thread-count silk twill 2) hand-sewn rolled-hem, with thread to coordinate with the scarf. 3) the design is either woven in or pressure-printed so that the color is uniform on both sides 4) the designer tag is "tacked" on (something you will understand if you sew), with a single button-stitch on either side so that it is easy to remove.
Now, this one is not silk twill, it's a thinner silk crepe, but still beautiful. It's also machine stitched, and the thread is red, so it doesn't blend well with the design edge patterns. Still, it's a beautiful pressure-printed design, and quite substantial.
And, it's huge. It's about the size of a typical pashmina stole. You could wear this so many different ways.
This lovely scarf will make a wonderful gift. The only criticism I have concerns the hem. It was not a rolled hem, which I was expecting on such a pretty scarf, but more of a flat hem with the stitching on top.
Large enough to be doubled to tie your head in and style of your choice, and have enough material left to make a bun. You can also be versatile in whatever form you choose to wear it, even though it’s very light weight.
I like the size of it. When I saw the picture, I kind of imagined a shiny silk satin scarf, but it is thin and light polyester kind thus, colors are not as rich as the photo. It smells something, but I think it will fade away soon. The scarf is match with the price so, I think it is fair.
I have started my holiday shopping when I saw the scarf and read the reviews. I ordered the black option and it arrived today. OMG....just gorgeous. I’m going or order more to give as gifts for others and to me!
