How to recognize a real Hermès square?
In 1929, Lola Prusa created the first Hermès square. Called "Les hémisphères", it was adorned with motifs evoking the tumultuous life of wild animals. Years later, the success of Hermès squares has not aged a bit. Recognizable among a thousand thanks to their fabrics, their roulottés and the finesse of their designs, they remain timeless classics.
Weaving by textile masters
Today, authentic Hermès scarves are cut from silk twill. This extremely supple, twill-woven fabric is of rare quality. It wrinkles with difficulty and is easily identifiable.
If you look at the front of a square Hermes Le soleil royal black and yellow scarf, you'll notice that it has a slanted weave. This is proof that you are in the presence of a real scarf from the French house.
A hand-rolled scarf made by exceptional craftsmen
In addition to the weave, you can recognize a real Hermes scarf by looking closely at the roulotté of its edges. The result of handwork, it is characterized by a regular stitch with a spacing of 1 cm. And that's not all...
Talented artists, the seamstresses have succeeded in the tour de force of not making knots on the scarves. Instead, they made a clever doubling of thread in the reverse of the accessory.
Patterns executed with uncommon grace
Even under a magnifying glass, the designs engraved on a Hermes scarf do not suffer from any burrs. Moreover, the designs are not rushed.
Take a few minutes to admire this beautiful French square Hermes... Like all scarves of the brand, it is composed of a central design around which gravitate related elements.
