Large Vintage Hermes Gold Equestrian Silk Scarf and Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

About

The ‘crème de la crème’ of scarves, this beauty is a one-of-a-kind custom made luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite vintage silk Hermes fashion scarf in a striking equestrian design. The French company began in 1837, producing superior quality leather goods, harnesses and saddles, which makes sense that 100 years later the main theme on their luxury scarves is equestrian. Hermes scarves, known as ‘carre’ (squares), have become a symbol of French chic and are a highly desirable object across the globe that still continues to delight. Favoured by the ‘jet-setters’ of the 1950s-1960s, and gaining iconic status by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and this particular design even worn by Queen Elizabeth II. The ‘Brides de Gala’ print designed by Hugo Grygkar in 1957, and the name itself even makes up a good portion of the design, proudly featuring in the centre. The attractive equestrian design is a delicately detailed illustration of bridal equipment with buckles, leather straps, feminine mermaids holding up functional hoops and lions holding crests on other sections of the metal hardware adorning the elaborate piece. It features a display of two equestrian horse bridal dressings symmetrical like a mirror image of each other. In a striking colourway of dramatic dark navy and black straps accented with rich antique gold decoration on a quality sumptuous cream twill silk with a beautiful texture. It was made using the ‘Lyonnaise technique’ silk screen process with each of it’s 13 frames traditional laid one by one by hand (the more complex patterns can go up to 42). We also have a couple of other stunning Hermes scarf cushions listed that would make spectacular showpieces to your interior. With a delicately hand rolled and hemmed edge, a distinctive French style finish of all Hermes scarves. Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw color of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handmade in Ireland. By designer-maker Katie Larmour. Color: Navy, dark blue, soft black, yellow ochre, mustard, pale grey (gray), cream, off white and ivory. Tags: Valentines, nautical, bag, watch.
