Pampa Hermes Scarf

The Pampa Hermes Silk Scarf was designed by Jean De Fougerolle and issued in 1988.

The Pampa Hermes carre, as the name suggests and the four vignettes further illustrate, celebrates the Pampa Plains of Argentina and its cowboys.

The Pampas as they are often referred to, are large fertile lowlands that extend inland from the Atlantic covering just under 290,000 square miles. Due to the temperate climate and fertile soil, this region has primarily been farm and cattle country in the past, given way to vineyards in recent years as the Buenos Aires wine region flourishes and expands.

To this day, however, the Pampas people maintain their close knit relationship with their horses and dogs and together they form an excellent cattle herding team, which has been so beautifully captured in this Hermes design.

In the vignette above, a Pampa Cowboy is using Bolas, a type of throwing weapon made of two or more weights attached to the ends of interconnected cords. As accurately depicted here by Jean Fougurelle, the Bolas are used to entangle the feet of large birds or even cattle.

Jean De Fougerolle’s Pampa from 1988 concludes our month of Around-the-World with Hermes.

The French Fashion House is responsible for many stunning scarf designs that are inspired by some of the most beautiful places on our planet.

So without any further ado, I invite you to take a trip around the world without ever boarding a plane, a train or automobile…
