Nuees Imaginaires Hermes Scarf 2011 Christine Henry – excellent condition with no signs of wear – no damage, flaws or issues of any kind – box available — From Christine Henry’s website: After a degree in Fine Arts and following rough courses, Christine Henry has made illustrations for the press and for book publishers in different areas. Attracted by computer work, she received vocational training to become a desktop publishing model maker. This activity, carried for four years, has enabled her to create logos, advertisements for merchants and corporations, as well as creating book layouts. Despite the diversity of this activity, the exercise of traditional drawing and painting was missing. For two years, Christine Henry has prepared an exhibition that gathered painting with tempera on wood, drawings colored with inks or dry pastels on paper.

Following this exhibition and after contacting the company Hermès in Paris, the artist now works for this company as a freelance designer since 1995, creating square patterns, ashtrays, storage trays and enamel bracelets. Her sources of inspiration are mainly tales and legends from around the world, mythology and the symbolism related to the representation of animals and plants in different civilizations, old or new.

The Hermes Scarf – A 90 cm silk square weighing approximately 65 grams – has graced the necks of the world’s outstanding ladies and continues to be an indispensable accessory for all elegant women. Manufacturing methods may have evolved since the first scarf was turned out in 1937, but high-quality traditional craftsmanship remains the standard. The factory is situated in Pierre-Benite, near Lyon, the capital of silk. In the printing department, bolts of silk are fixed on immense tables more than 100 meters long. A printer places a silk screen frame corresponding to one color and one particular design and applies the appropriate dye. These steps are repeated as many times as the number of frames needed to arrive at the final pattern. Depending on its complexity, 24 to 70 applications may be required. Once it is printed, the bank of silk is put to dry above the tables for the entire day. Later it is washed, dried, ironed and cut. A seamstress puts the finishing touch with a hand-sewn hem on the scarf’s four borders. The colors employed call for a variety of utensils worthy of a great chef. The assemblage of pigments underneath allows for the composition of 38 primary colors which, skillfully mixed, produce an infinite range of hues and shades. Hermes creates new patterns based on a specific theme every year. More than 1000 different models exist, each one conjugated in a dozen colors.
