Art des Steppes Silk ScarfSize guide
The Art des Steppes silk scarf was designed for Hermès Paris.
Founded in 1837, the French luxury house Hermes began as a bridle and harness company for horses before branching out into luxury handbags and other accessories. Today, Hermes is one of the oldest and most valuable luxury companies in the world.
The scarf made its debut in 1937, exactly 100 years after Hermes was founded. The design of the very first scarf was based on a woodblock drawing by Robert Dumas, a member of the Hermes family. It was made with imported Chinese silk which made the scarf twice as strong than any of the scarves available at the time and, thus, became an immediate hit.
Since 1937, Hermes has produced over two thousand silk scarves, all produced in an Hermes factory near Lyon, France. Given that Hermes always catered to the very rich, the scarf was quickly adopted by royalty and celebrities. It was (and still is) worn as a headscarf by Queen Elizabeth. Audrey Hepburn wore it in countless iconic photos and Grace Kelly famously used it as a sling for her broken arm.
But, the Art des Steppes Silk Hermes scarf has an allure that goes beyond celebrity. One scarf takes a full 18 months to complete, making it one of the most meticulously-crafted accessories in the world.
