Can anyone tell me more about the inspiration for this scarf and the meaning behind its design? I love the name (it's meaningful to me on several levels) and I want to learn more about it before deciding whether to buy it. Thanks!

Kenzie - it's also one of my faves, and I just bought one on e-bay! I too would like to know more of the story behind the design. One of the things I love about H scarves is - they make you think.

Woo hoo, congrats on your new purchase! I'd love to study that particular scarf up close so I can read everything written on it. That one in particular seems to be quite thought-provoking.

It´s such a beautiful design. I don´t know about the idea behind it but I´m sure someone will see this thread soon and knows.

I was curious, so I did a web search on the title. It appears that it's a common expression in French, and there's a philosophy book by that title, but I didn't find anything more helpful (even on French webpages -- of course, I was relying on Google's translation service, so I undoubtedly was missing most of the meaning of those pages). I also ran a search, adding "Hermes" as a required term, but nothing popped up explaining the background of the scarf.

It means "birth of an idea," correct? From what I could read on the scarf, it's almost looks like a map of the creative process. Or maybe it's just my brain doing free association. :biggrin:
