In Matchbook’s second issue (their fifth issue is out TODAY, by the way!), writer Natalie Grasso wrote a piece about the Hermès scarf, noting that each silk confection takes roughly three hundred fifty hours to make. Crazy, right? I did a little research and found that the lengthy construction time is largely due to the fact that each scarf is hand-rolled. If you’re not sure what “hand-rolling” means (...I certainly didn’t know!), Hermès produced this lovely short film which follows a seamstress through the entire process. It’s très interesting (and will make you want a closet-full of their scarves). Enjoy!
