Silk chiffon shawl, hand-rolled, 56" x 56"

Textiles are among the many riches of the African continent - its myriad peoples create their own, distinctive fabrics drawing on local resources, and reflecting their particular needs and beliefs, with a diverse plethora of weaves, prints and techniques. Perpetuating this extraordinary heritage, the skills of Africa’s textile artisans are handed down day after day – a process dear to the heart of the house of Hermès. Freely inspired by Nigeria’s adire eleko print technique (based on starch stenciling) this carré celebrates the use of a precious dye – indigo, central Africa’s ‘blue gold’ – with a journey to the heart of the region’s myths and legends. Of course, Hermès carrés are never named for one colour alone (how could they be?): but here is an exception to prove the rule. Our colourists delight in reinventing each composition in a multitude of colourways.
