About a year ago, I came across a very unusual Hermès scarf. As the Etriers is one of my favorites, to purchase this unusual “edition” was an easy and quick decision.
What I had purchased was an unfinished Etriers with possibly 6 print layers missing as well as the roulotté non-existent.
A dear friend, who used to manage one of the Hermes stores for years, was as excited as I was, as scarves like this are quite rare and not easy to find.
I have decided not to have it hemmed, although Hermes offers this service at a fee, but instead to display it as an art piece, beautifully framed.
Still deciding on the right frame, I will post photos when it is done.
Please enjoy the photos below showing the difference between my unfinished Etriers and a lovely Etriers I have just listed for sale.
I hope you have enjoyed the photos and comparisons. Studying my unfinished Etriers has made me appreciate the time-consuming process with which each and every Hermès scarf is created.
Merci Maison Hermès –
