WOW! This is a really beautiful piece of fabric. The colors are MUCH richer and deeper in person than pictured on the website.The description on the website of the colors being brown and green (as shown in the item description and pictures) is a little inaccurate,though.

I think the fabric is much better in person than the website picture indicates.The fabric itself has a nice heavy weight,too.
