Along with Birkin bag Hermes scarf has become one of the most recognized label’s creations. Each scarf is hand-printed and hand-stitched. Besides, it has a secret that you might not have known – scarves are made with a scent!

Originally made of silk Hermes scarf measures 90 cm × 90 cm and weighs 65 grams. To manufacture one piece 250 mulberry moth cocoons are necessary. When the fabric is ready it is hand-printed by Hermes professionals who have to apply up to forty three silk screens to achieve the effect. One screen is for one color of the scarf.

Motifs for scarves have ranged from the germane (such as the French Revolution or French Cuisine) to the unexpected (such as the flora and fauna of Texas). However, the most common prints for Hermes scarf are the equestrian and military motifs.

Every year only two collections of scarves are released, and some older versions of the legendary scarf are made. Year by year the sale of Hermes scarf is increasing and on holidays like Christmas scarves literally fly off shelves, selling a piece every 20 seconds despite the fact the average price for the item is 300 euros.

Today Hermes manufactures cashmere/silk blend scarves for colder seasons. Both types of scarves are popular with customers.

Hermes has released a book about their scarves entitled The Hermès Scarf: History and Mystique. The book tells the history of Hermes scarf and reveals the technology of its production. Besides, the reader can find information about multiple ways of wearing the scarf.

The number of fans of Hermes scarf includes lots of celebrities who value the piece for its quality and the status it gives to the wearer. Queen Elisabeth II, Audrey Hepburn, Kylie Minogue, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hillary Clinton, Mariah Carey, and Madonna – all were spotted wearing Hermes scarves.

By the way, the newest collection of Hermes scarves has been inspired by modern art. The brand has released a graffiti-printed range of pieces under the collaboration with French artist Kongo. Some of the proceeds are to be used to support Kosmopolis street-art project.

These are the scaves I'm talking about:
