Originally founded in 1837 as a saddlery company by Theirry Hermès, the business has remained mostly in the control of the Hermès family for almost two hundred years. Today, the house of Hermès produces ready-to-wear fashion, home decor, jewellery, luggage, and fragrances as well as saddles.
But most notably, the scarves made by Hermès are the most coveted of all. Woven from the silk of 250 mulberry moth cocoons and hand-printed using multiples silk screens, these scarves are highly sought after. Famous lover of the Hermès scarf includes Queen Elizabeth II, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.
