This is a welcoming store that has great products. I regret not buying more. Even the store owners in other cities told us that the pashmina we bought was of great quality and extremely well priced. Thank you Harish!

I bought a lot of scarves! They were beautiful quality, an amazing selection and far superior to anything else we saw. Went to BaaBaa Black Sheep but it didn't compare with the selection or price of Harish's goods. I would thoroughly recommend shopping there.More
