If you fall in love with one of the patterns, they do seem worth the investment.
. This one is a true art scarf — a painting translated into fabric. The colors are so vivid; I would definitely want to put this one in a place where I could easily snatch it down to wear from time to time.
. I could write an entirely separate post about how much I love photographic transfers onto different materials, but I’ll spare you and just leave it at this: I doubt that you would ever regret this purchase.
