Omiyo's batik cowl is the easiest way to add a great pop of pizzazz to an outfit! Just throw it over your head and go. No need to tie, tug, pull or adjust throughout the day. The rich batik patterns are made with wax so the fabric is crisp at first. But as you wash it in hot water over and over again (don't be afraid), the fabric will soften and retain the beautiful color.
