DESIGN BY ALINE HONORE 2009
From “Histoires de Carres” Autumn-Winter 2009:
“The carre borrows it’s title from the epithet “The man with wind for his soles” that Verlaine has used of his friend, the travel poet Rimbaud. It pays homage to Alexandra David-Neel (1868-1969), the explorer, versed in knowledge, who studied oriental philosophies and covered thousands of kilometres crossing Central Asia and the Far East. Like the rugs and clothing of these regions, the carre is bordered with fur bands, here printed on the silk, and embroidered braids, mixing ethnic, geometric or floral patterns, interspersed with pieces of gold-work, charms, and earrings of silver, coral and turquoise.”
This scarf has plump, forward-rolled hand-stitched hems.
100% silk twill. Measures 90cm x 90cm or 35” square.
Comes in original box with ribbon.
