Le Geographe, an intricate silk jacquard, was designed by Sandra Laroche, who has created to my knowledge, three additional carres for the Maison Hermes: Au Clair de la Lune, Fleurs d’Hiver and Per Astra Ad Astra being her most recent and perhaps also best known creation.
Le Geographe, her first Hermes design from 1992, is a beautiful scarf, rich in detail and storytelling.
Australia’s four explorers, Charles-Alexandre Lesueur, Nicolas-Thomas Baudin and François Péron are depicted in each corner and at the center is Australia herself surrounded by her unique flora and fauna.
