    "It all started with the discovery of printed fabrics with intriguing motifs in archival album acquired by the house years ago. The technique used to make these motifs however, remained a mystery. It took several years of research to finally unveil the origins of the process: it was invented in the first half of 19th century by Switzerland, Germany, France... and yet it was in Japan that Hermès met the passionate artisans who inherited this know-how from their ancestor who had learnt it in Europe long ago. These artisans are the ones who made the Marble Silk scarf. The process used to create this scarf is unique executed entirely by hand." - Hermès

    Just came across this video on Hermès' Youtube channel and had to share! :P Following are pics of the exceptional Marble Silk 90cm silk that I had the pleasure to play with from last year's Spring/Summer 2018 collection.

  3. Pleasure! Too good not to share! :giggle: :smile: I suspect they might? :thinking: My guess is that they can only produce a small quantity and in Hermès' eagerness to preserve and share this technique, added this to their repertoire of exceptional silks.
