Hermès, which was started in 1801 by Thierry Hermès, is still one of the world’s most exclusive, prestigious brands. Hermès sprung onto the scene as a first-class maker of leather harnesses and bridles in Paris and by the early 1900’s, they started offering fashion accessories, including handbags and colorful, silk scarves.
Pierres d'Orient et d'Occident or Stones of East and West is one of Zoe Pawuels's best selling designs. First issued in fall/winter of 1988/89, it was reissued also in the spring/summer of 1993.
Created in a hand numbered limited edition of 9 pieces, this will surely be a collector's item.
Part of our CLIENT PRIVATE RESERVE COLLECTION, this beautiful scarf belonged to a Chicago philanthropist. In exchange we gave her the 1st mask in the edition as our gift and will donate 100% of net profits to The AIDS Foundation Chicago which mobilizes communities to create equity and justice for people living with and vulnerable to HIV or chronic conditions.
Each limited edition style is created from a single vintage scarf and therefore each mask comes from a unique positioning on the scarf - no two are alike. Each image on our website (or in our communications) represents one mask from the scarf, the other masks from the same scarf will vary due to placement within the design.
Exclusively ours and sourced from independently authenticated vintaged scarves upcycled to conserve earth's scarce natural resource. Company is not affiliated with Hermès of Paris.
