The Hermes Scarf Creation Process
The scarves average as many as 27 colours.
Each design is created by hand-design and then brought to the screen printing process.
The artist's design is then broken down by Hermes engravers to unique films - one for each colour. As many as 47 films may be created for a single scarf.
During this time Brazilian silk is imported to France where the raw silk is woven - a process that can take up to three months.
Pigments are mixed and boiled to create perfect colours, and then the screens are applied to the silk which is stretched over the printing table.
Each screen applies new colour and pattern. When dry they are steamed to set them in place.
Finally the silk is cut into squares and seamstresses hand roll and sew the edges with silk thread that creates the signature edging of an Hermes scarf.
An Hermes scarf can take 18 months to create, and they are loved an collected with appreciation for the expert and attention detail that goes into each one.
