What is Matta Dupatta? It's an Obsession!

Once I bought my first Matta Dupatta soft cotton and silk scarf, I had to get another. Each color added a whole new dimension to my look. Matta in Sangria reminded of my last trip to Spain and thrust me into a warm evening of Spanish guitar, delicious wine and the smell of the sea. Next came Matta in Bay which works perfectly with my denims and favorite light-colored T-s. Through in a pair of cool Frye boots and your favorite concert T-shirt and this scarf and you got it made! Matta in Tikka - I love the traditional Indian print - exotic yet sophisticated. And, of course, Matta Dupatta in Black - classy, elegant and timeless black is always a must have as it goes with everything. Matta scarves are available at Creative Contrast for only $155 with free shipping worldwide. This discount is valid only through this Sunday (5/24), better get on these before they are all gone!
