How deliciously perishable are these marvels,
the petal decorations assembled each morning
on the earth by the women of Kerala,
in the south-west of India, at the time of
the harvests. These floral tributes wreathing
the thresholds of the of the houses are a consecration
of transience, which invites us better to taste
the enchantment of our fleeting lives. And so
that this enchantment can be shared.
Hermes is dedicating this Carre, as a token of
generosity, to a practical objective: the sales will
go to help pay for the studies of young Indians.
Btw, does anyone know if you can write the cost of the scarf off for tax purposes as a charitable deduction?
With the economy as it is lately I'd like to be able to justify (rationalize) a new purchase. I love the Ecole Portugaise and Central Park scarves that support The Blue Horse charity.
I have the purple colorway of this scarf, too and I love it. Plus I really love the idea that there is a donation being made to such a good cause. I understand that H intends to have one scarf from each season dedicated to raising money for a charity. Great idea!!
