Les Beaux Jours de Bonsai Hermès Scarf was designed by Catherine Baschet and issued in 1991. That year Hermès celebrated Asia as a theme and it is then no surprise that this design was part of a collection, which included other favorites, such as Art des Steppes, Brise de Charme, Nikko and Samourai.
Les Beaux Jours de Bonsai Hermès scarf is also simply known as Bonsai.
In her design, Catherine Baschet celebrates the Japanese art of Bonsai, which dates back to the 6th century and takes its origins from the Chinese art, penzai, where trees and other plants are artistically shaped into miniature versions and landscapes.
The art of Bonsai takes a perennial woody-stemmed tree or shrub species and through careful skilled pruning and training creates an artful miniature version of itself.
The Hermes Les Beaux Jours de Bonsai showcases a total of nine beautiful Bonsai trees some in full bloom others bearing fruit.
Les Beaux Jours de Bonsai Hermès Scarf just like its inspiration, the art form of bonsai, takes the beauty of nature and replicates it in a grand masterpiece.
