Hermes Le Chants du Henne, the Song of Henna, is a carre designed by Toutsy (also known as Laurence THIOUNE and Laurence BOURTHOUMIEUX), who is responsible for a number of fabulous and much loved carres. (Please follow the links to some of her creations as well as a short bio).
Le Chants du Henne was issued in 2002, the year of the Hand at Hermes.
Madama Bourthoumieux chose the hands of an Indian bride as the focus of her carre.
In the Indian tradition, extensive and intricate henna patterns are drawn on the bride’s hands and feet before her wedding for the Mehndi (henna) Night. During this night she, together with her family, relatives and friends, celebrates her upcoming wedding with games, song and dance.
According to tradition, the bride is excused from any household chores as long as the henna stays on. (lucky girl :-)…)
Enjoy this fabulous carre in warm henna hues of orange, yellow and red.
Perfect for all seasons, this carre will delight your senses and instantly transport you to faraway places. Fabulously soft silk will be a delight to tie in all your favorite ways.
