Hermès designs scarf for World Horse Welfare

Hermès designs scarf for World Horse Welfare

At La Maison des Carres

Hermès has a strong relationship with equestrian activity, having started life as a saddle and bridal maker, and now it's giving back by creating a charitable scarf for sale

Heritage French fashion house Hermès has launched a limited-edition version of its iconic silk scarf, the profits going towards 87-year-old charity, World Horse Welfare.

The style is called 'A cheval sur mon carré' (a horse on my scarf), and is 90cm in size sporting a design by deputy creative director Bali Barret in 2006.

It depicts the silhouette of a horse made out of other equestrian-themed scarves by the brand, on a background of horseshoes just to make the theme clear.

The new, blue version of this design comes in a limited edition of 300 and will be available at Hermès boutiques and at dedicated scarf microsite, La Maison des Carrés.
