"My favorite scarf"

I love this scarf because it's beautiful, yet so light and thin that it fits in my purse, so I can have it with me at all times. Whenever I feel a little chilly, I just pull it out and wrap it around my neck for instant coziness.

"Royal Blue Java Scarf"

This scarf is gorgeous! The blue shimmers and is vibrant--a true royal blue color. The batik pattern is lovely. the scarf is also very light weight so it can be tucked in a pocket or purse for cool summer evenings. Excellent craftsmanship.

"Lovely Scarf"

Beautiful pattern and wonderful royal blue colour. This scarf is just all I wanted. As all the scarves I bought from Yuni Kristina, it's well made and elegant. Although it will look great paired with a jean or leather jacket. Really, just perfect. Thanks again Yuni Kristina!

"very nice and lightweight scarf"

Nice item, I am little disappointed with the color, my scarf is more toward navy blue than royal blue... I really want it the royal blue.

The Java Starlight shawl in silk is just gorgeous! It is a feast for the eyes with the deep blues and intricate design. Made in a soft, luxurious silk, it truly dazzles. It is at least as beautiful as the picture shows it and everything I had hoped it would be. Many thanks for this amazing piece of art. I will wear it often!

Loved the shawl!Outstanding quality and attention to detail. Colors are beautiful and vibrant without being too ""loud"". Packaging was equally beautiful and actually can be used for storing the shawl.
