Complementario is the third shawl in the Flamenco collection. The three patterns are connected by color and by style: they all express strong feelings, operate with spectacular solutions. They are pieces in your wardrobe that want to play the main role in your outfit, feminine and provocative.

Take the advantage for buying the whole collection for decreased price and knit eye catching accessories.
Abanico is sexy and cosy in the same time. The garter section makes this project a fast knit, and the complicated lace shows itself better next to a relaxed background.
Sensualidad is not for the faint hearted: is very lacy and breath taking.

Complementario shawl is based on contrasts and impressive solutions. The contrast and play of the two colors are like questions and answers, like flamenco itself: the dance of masculinity and femininity. The unique shape of the shawl strengthens the above symbolic effect, but it’s also very practical: it helps to keep the shawl on your shoulders.
