Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Vintage Hermes ‘Feux du Ciel’ Silk Scarf. This beautiful scarf was created by Sefedin Ibrahim Alamin (Kwumi). Kwumi was a 14-year-old Sudanese boy that sought refuge at the Doctors Without Borders base camp after his parents were killed during the civil war in 1997. He was placed in an orphan school, which had been previously visited by Jean-Louis Dumas, chief executive for Hermes at the time. Dumas spoke with the teachers and asked them to send him works from promising artists. Kwumi’s drawings were sent to Dumas, who then hired him. This sold-out design, ‘Feux du Ciel’ was released in 2000. A striking and powerful artwork, this rare scarf is a must-have collector’s piece.
