Product description

Scarf in silk twill with hand rolled edges (100% silk). The Hermès scarf is reinvented as the velvety Wash scarf. Washed by our artisans’ expert hands, the scarf is transformed into a relaxed, mattified, and ever so slightly faded piece, gaining an irresistible soft touch. This exclusive process makes each scarf unique and can slightly alter its dimensions.
We recommend to dry clean your scarf or machine wash following our careful instructions. See the Care section for details on how to care for your Wash scarf.
This essential Hermès accessory complements any outfit. It can be worn many ways - around your neck, as a top, at the waist or as a headscarf!
Made in France

Designed by Cathy Latham

Measures 36" x 36"

The story behind

J. Robert Hart's 1792 watercolor inspired Caty Latham to design the Washington’s Carriage scarf. In 1789, the first president of the United States took his seat in a coupé decorated with eagles with outstretched wings and made the journey from his New York residence to the Federal Hall. One corner of the original design is enlarged here, giving birth to a new, graphic composition. In this detail, the eye concentrates on the arabesques of the design, on the axle and the movement of the wheel - the very image of America setting its future in motion.
