Wow! I bought this recently at the Stratford, Ontario (great display by the way...very user friendly and appealing) store. I had no idea that the scrolled bits were dried peel. I am very impressed. I only bought this nine days ago and I have already worn it three times. It's bright, cheery, funky, looks great with jeans, capris, you name it, and it matches everything colourwise. I really liked it when I tried it on in the store, but I had no idea that I'd end up loving it. Way to go Ten Thousand Villages.
