The Icon Series: Hermès Scarves
The Hermès scarf made its debut in 1937, with its very first print based on a woodcut drawing by Robert Dumas, a member of the Hermès family. Every scarf was crafted from start to finish, the brand would import Chinese silk to Paris, weave the yarn into fabric and screen print it. The scarves were a hit and quickly became popular among celebrities and royalty. Audrey Hepburn was a fan, Jackie Onassis and Queen Elizabeth have worn theirs as headscarves and Grace Kelly even used hers as a sling for her broken arm. Today, the scarves remain as stylish as ever and are still as meticulously made as they were 80 years ago, at an Hermès factory near Lyon, France. One scarf takes almost two years to make, are hand-rolled and stitched and come in three different sizes: 16", 36" and 55" squares. Hermès hires talented artists across the globe to hand-design each scarf. The brand has long been a supporter of craftsmen across the globe, from the Tuareg tribesman of the Sahara to a postman/painter in Waco, Texas. Although most scarves feature an equestrian motif, a nod to their roots, other themes such as military, mythology, and wildlife have all served as inspiration. They are true works of art and some collectors have also used these Hermès scarves as home decor, framing them on walls and above mantelpieces. If you're ready to start your collection, SnobSwap has a great selection to choose from. Also, if you haven't heard, the brand has launched a temporary pop-up shop called Hermèsmatic that offers a complimentary dip-dye for your scarves. It just ended in our stomping ground of D.C. and headed to Nashville and LA at the end of this year so if you happen to be in those cities, treat yourself to one and get in on the fun!
