I adore Tohu Bohu. I don't care for Hermes' traditional scarf designs. Tohu Bohu is so contemporary and fun and lively and colorful and playful. It makes me smile because it's not the least bit serious. Did I mention colorful?

I like it because it is so...un-Hermes so to speak. Sort of something that you'd never expect Hermes to come up with..

I was actually first attracted to the tohu bohu pattern because the words are derived from Hebrew and mean something similar to "formless" and "void." I'm always intrigued by interesting words and their etymological histories.

The design itself was actually secondary for me but I especially love my carre in the light blue colorway. It goes with so many things in my wardrobe and I can wear it with several of my H bags. I also have one of the enamel bracelets in the orange colorway.

As you can see from my signature I'm waiting to find a carre in the orange colorway in excellent condition.
