Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

What shawls, (head) scarves, capes, sarongs and pareos all have an common is that they consist of one piece of fabric. However, they differ enormously, in size and shape and how they are wrapped and tied. WRAP-AROUND FASHION DESIGN provides a comprehensive course in designing and drawing these popular fashion items.
