PRODUCT STORY
Colder weather shouldn't mean a farewell to flowers. Wear your favorite blossoms year-round with this beautiful rose-inspired scarf. This colorful bloom is handmade by artisans based in the gaucho region of Brazil, an area rich in natural resources that is known for a long, romantic tradition of cattle herding by South American cowboys. Consider these flowers a gift from the strong cowboy who knows his wool.

Dry clean only.

These blooms won't fade as winter approaches. In fact, they become more useful as a functional fashion accessory! Would you wear a reminder of spring flowers as the weather gets colder?

Who says it has to be functional? It's pretty, and would look great (and be warm enough) with a turtleneck.

Agree with others that it certainly doesn't look warm...and it isn't all that decorative.

I don't quite get this one! As an embelishment on a canvas bag...yes. As a scarf...not so much!

The concept is cool, but the purpose of a scarf is to keep a person warm. How would this scarf accomplish that?

Though this is pretty, it does not seem to be functional. I can not see myself wearing this as it would not provide much warmth!

Cute idea, but I don't think it's practical as a functional scarf. It would work well as a decorative accesory, though I wonder what it looks like when it hangs on the body.

It's pretty and unique, but honestly, the only reason I would buy this is if I had a friend who lived in or loved Brazil. And even then, the "DCO" label would give me pause. A picture of the scarf on the model would be a good idea - that way we can see if fashion really is more important than function.

As a souvenir of a failed attempt to rescue Briar Rose from her slumber, the illusion of being strangled by a rose is eye-catching. As a functional wardrobe item intended to either keep you warm or not look like you have a cable wrapped around your neck, this is a fail.

I like the style but it seems like it's not really a scarf that would keep you warm. It's hard to tell because there is no sense of scale but looks really thin.

Cute idea, but it looks way too skinny to keep you warm on a cold day. I love fun scarves and hats... I have a closet of crazy animal ones and would love something like this, but I want them to do their job AND look cool.

This is ridiculously adorable and I would LOVE to purchase this. I especially love that the roses are handmade by Brazilian artisans. Romantic, sweet, and very different.

No offense to the maker, but when I first saw the thumbnail.. I thought it was a jump rope! The "roses" don't look like roses, and the leaves are a brownish green which resembles mold. It does not appeal to me at all. Not to mention, it's not thick to provide any warmth during cold months. If not for "the look" or practical reasons, what is it for?

This scarf is way too narrow to serve any useful function. The "roses" look more like calla lilies to me. Also, why isn't the "stem" green? Nice idea, poor execution.
