Vintage Hermes Silk Scarf backed in Linen Pillow Cushion Quirky Bright Orange

About the Item

Title: Vintage Hermes Silk Scarf backed in Irish Linen Pillow Bright Orange Description: Katie Larmour Studio is the original vintage scarf pillow maker. Gaining notability for her unique idea and creations back in 2013 - featured in the likes of the Financial Times, and first selling here on 1stdibs in 2016 - our creations are of the absolute top most quality, craftsmanship and finesse. Thank-you for looking. The ‘crème de la crème’ of scarves, this beauty is a one-of-a-kind custom made luxury cushion (pillow) from an exquisite and rare vintage silk Hermes fashion scarf in an elaborate 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 50s and 60s and gaining iconic status by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and even Queen Elizabeth II. The fun and quirky piece named ‘A You Crayons!’ by designer Leigh P.Cooke in 2004. There is energy and movement with the both the composition and the flamboyant colourway. Crayons are arranged in an imaginative formation around the boarder, in blue, yellow, green, turquoise, purple / pink, red and taupe / brown. In the middle is a scattering of crayon pencil sharpening in their full circle and broken scrolls. The ‘Hermes’ signature adorns the busy piece in many places, almost hidden as it appears on the pencil handle, along with the artist’s name as well. It was made using the ‘Lyonnaise technique’ silk screen process with each of its frames traditionally laid one by one by hand (the more complex patterns can go out to 42). Before being carefully unraveled to create our cushion, the edge was delicately hand rolled and hemmed, a distinctive French style finish of all Hermes scarves. It would make a spectacular statement showpiece piece for an interior. On a quality twill silk with beautiful texture. Soft, sumptuous silk which feels divine to the touch. 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 colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled melange effect. Katie is an ambassador The European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC). Also see our other items listed here on 1stdibs which include a wide array and colourful rainbow of complimentary pieces. We also have this exact same print, made up into a pillow, in a bright, shocking pink colour-way, also available here on 1stdibs, as a pair they would look fantastic. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handcrafted in Ireland By designer-maker Katie Larmour This cushion is a one-of-a-kind and part of a sustainability project. It has been created from a repurposed, up-cycled, recycled fabric, used with the intentions on promoting a more eco-friendly environment. We both celebrate and cherish the past and take care with rare and precious vintage and antique materials. (this cushion frame can also be reversed back into a scarf and presented in a frame on request) Tags: Antique gold, yellow, ochre, cream, brown, taupe, tan, orange, wood, European, designer, pop art, cartoon. *Please note that due to flash photography the blue appears slightly lighter in the photographs than in real life. The measurement is approximate and may vary a very little amount due to the handmade nature of the item.*

Thank-you for looking. Title: Vintage Hermes Equestrian Silk Scarf and Irish Linen Cushion Pillow The ‘crème de la crème’ of scarves, this beauty is a one-of-a-kind luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite vintage silk Hermes fashion scarf in their festive ‘Les Rubans Du Cheval’ equestrian pattern by Joachim Metz in 1988. A variety of elaborate ribbon rosettes in vibrant, colourful hues - an ornament made of pleated material, gathered so as to resemble a rose and worn as a decorative badge to show ranking in a competition. 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 50s and 60s and gaining iconic status by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and this particular elegant design even worn by Queen Elizabeth II. The name of the print along with the brand’s signature proudly features 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 bride dressings symmetrical like a mirror image of each other. In a dramatic, busy picture of multicoloured ribbon colour way on a quality sumptuous 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 out to 42). Before being carefully unravelled to create our cushion, the edge was delicately hand rolled and hemmed, a distinctive French style finish of all Hermes scarves.

The name of the print, ’Clic Clac’ - alluding to the clattering of horses - along with the brand’s signature, ’Hermes’, and artist Julia Abadie’s name, ‘J. Abadie’, proudly feature within the picture. Note the text ‘Hermes Souris’, translating as Hermes ‘Mouse’ or ‘Mice’, and ‘Clic Clouc’. First designed in 1979, the attractive equestrian design is a delicately detailed illustration of elaborate bridal equipment - with various buckles, a pair of traditional leather blinkers, six old fashioned blackthorn horsewhips and pommels. In a soft, delicate blue and subtle creamy beige tone with muted browns colour-way with an essence of Mid-Century Modern design.
