I have a stash of over 200 silk scarves. Scarves are brilliant as they often have fanciful conversational/novelty patterns. Also they are easy to come by for not much cost. Mine live in a huge glass jar. With not a inch to move. So sad!
Hermes the legendary French luxury goods brand began as a harness workshop in Paris in 1837. In 1937, the first Hermès silk scarves were sold. Today, a scarf is sold every twenty seconds. There have been over 2,000 designs done to date. Yet another archive i'd like to get my eyes on.

Silk scarf prints . The strange thing i am told is that my Dad wore them all through the 60's and 70's. Was that one of those eccentric British things or a global trend? Who knows? Well one thing i am sure of was i had great fun as a kid digging through our coat closet and the silk scarves that were kept there. I guess that is were my love of scarves began. Below are some I love.
I have been pulling lots of late ones prepping for Indigo Paris. Now to get 20 winks.
