I am really pleased with the colours and feel of the products. Unfortunately during shipping the scarves packaging was crushed so I've removed them and repacked as they are both gifts. I would have loved the name of the artist and the artwork, and a little information about their country and/or careers to be sent along with the items. I would have paid an extra dollar or two to have a business card with such information to include with the scarves when gifting. The bags are for me so i would not have paid extra for artist information to be sent for those two items. I'm happy to purchase products that I believe adequately compensate artists for their copyright. I also prefer to buy items that are transparent in their manufacturing and that support ethical practices in sourcing materials and employment
