Theresa A.R. (Lansing, US)

I received my Congo Kuba blanket a few days ago and I just love it! The fabric is thick and so soft. It's of excellent quality and well made in terms of stitching and the Kuba pattern. The ordering and shipping process was smooth and timely. I will definitely buy from Thula Tula again. I also love that they are helping the artists of Africa.

The throw is beautiful, love the color; I accidentally ordered 2 and was going to return 1 but after my husband and I saw the throw; we decided to keep both. I thought I was ordering this one plus a black and white one. I am really enjoying this throw and it looks great in my room.
