Love Hermes but not what does to your wallet? Good news! You can get a piece of the design house without breaking the bank. Instead of depleting your savings by getting a Kelly bag, why not use a fraction of that to purchase a nice foulard by Hermès? My mom has a handful of the Hermès foulard, or scarves as we call them in America. These scarves are unique because Hermès releases two foulard collections each year as well as re-prints of previous editions (vintage-style range) and a number of limited editions Hermès foulards. To date Hermès has designed over 2500 foulard since the launch of its ateliers in 1937.

The silk Hermès foulards are hand-printed using multiple silk screens, that each imprint a different color on the foulard. The record number of colors on one foulard is 43 colors. Each foulard is made in the Hermès tradition of hand stitching and hand rolling the edges towards the vibrant side of the foulard. Each foulard is made from delicate silk that comes from 250 mulberry moth cocoons.

The foulard are available in pocket squares for the gentlemen in your life, twilly, which is a silk ribbon for your hair, vintage scarves, cashmere shawls and regular scarves. I love the vibrant hues and delicate patterns. The price range is between $125 and $950.

Visit the Hermes at Fairfax Square at Tysons Corner, 8075 Leesburg Pike,Vienna, VA 22182.
