About Hermès Silk
The first Hermès silk scarf "Jeu des omnibus et des dames blanches" was commissioned by Robert Dumas (1898-1978) in 1937, a member of the fourth generation Hermès family. Since 1948, the engraving, weaving and printing of Hermès scarves has been performed in the Lyon region, the traditional home of French silk. Over the past 76 years, teams of artists and designers have reinvented the silk square with original motifs recounting the history of Hermès and its links to fashion, the arts, cultures and traditions.
With carefully hand-rolled, hand-stitched hems, the creation of the Hermès scarf reflects the story of decades of know-how, artistry, storytelling and tradition. Over the years the original 90x90cm format of the scarf has evolved in size, style and material with a rich plentitude of designs and options for men and women, resulting in over 2,000 designs in over 75,000 specially created colours.
