Description

All Hermès scarves are hand-printed using multiple silk screens. It takes a studio of 20 freelance designers approximately 9 to 10 months for a final pattern to be created and approved. The next step is colour testing which takes an additional 3 months. The entire process takes about two years to complete from design concept, engraving and printing to the hand finishing process. Each 90 cm  square scarf contains 65 grams of silk from approximately 250 cocoons. Hermès flies the artist to the location that is to be the subject. On average, each scarf/shawl will have at least 5 different colours on it.

The artist, Leigh P Cooke’s speciality is designs showing carefully laid out objects, most frequently flowers and leaves with subtle shading to make them appear to be lying on the scarf.

This authentic Hermès Fleurs Et Plumes Mousseline silk shawl is new with box. This design was first issued on a 90 cm scarf in 2006 and has since appeared in a variety of colourways. In 2008 the design was expanded to include a mousseline shawl. Mousseline is also known as silk chiffon. This particular silk shawl is in a light pastel pink colourway with pastel orange, blue, green & yellow floral, feathers and bird eggs. This Hermès shawl is notable as being one of the few scarves/shawls from Hermès that has no border in it’s design. This silk shawl is approximately 68 cm wide by 192 cm (26.7 x 75.6 inches) in length with rolled plump edges. Includes the box. Made in France. Original retail $1500.

This shawl is in excellent condition because the shawl has never been worn. There are no pulls or snags and no visible markings of any kind. The care tag is attached (see photo). All photographs can be magnified for a closer view by clicking on the top left corner of photo.
