Quality is of the highest importance to us here at InFocus Canada. Each scarf goes through a detailed quality check before going into your order. From time to time, we may find small markings or minimal imperfections that render a scarf a 'seconds'. All of our seconds are 100% usable, and the flaws do not affect the wear or use of each item. Being able to offer these items at a discount reduces our environmental footprint, and at the same time provides an opportunity for you to stock up on scarves at a lower cost. A win/win situation :).
