TIDS ‘n BITS:
The Hermes scarf, also called “le carre” (the square), debuted in 1937 exactly 100 years after the company was founded by Thierry Hermès. Since then each scarf has told a story in elaborate intricate designs from the whimsical to the harmonious. Hermes scarves evoke emotions from the equestrian to the universe and has been loved through the decades by a myriad of women throughout the world and are coveted and collected.
In 1987, with the creation of L'Annee du Feu D'Artifice, Hermes began to create a theme each year. Over 2000 designs have been created and takes two years to make from inception. Each scarf has about 30 colours and has to be individually screened.
Along with limited editions and reprints of older designs in new colours, two collections of silk scarves and two collections of cashmere/silk blend scarves consisting of nine prints each are released every year.
Since Hermes scarves are so beautifully designed, often times they are framed and used as coveted artwork on walls.
