Do you remember that silk-patterned scarf, from your childhood, that your grandmother would always wear around her neck? Scarves actually originated to keep your neck and head warm, since that is primarily where all of the heat is lost. But soon after they were popular, silk scarves became a fashion accesory for every woman. Woman would fill up their closets with numerous scarves just to have at least five in every color. Founded in 1837, by Thierry Hermès, Hermès scarves were considered Luxury fashion items. Each scarf measures 90cm and is woven from the silk of 250 mulberry moth cocoons. All Hermès scarves are hand-printed using multiple silk screens and the hems are all hand-stitched.
