Hermes is not only known for the famous Birkin bag (purse) but it is also known for their exquisite scarves (or carre). I wanted to buy one and have it framed for my living room. When I went in, I did not have the heart to tell the sales lady that I really didn’t need to try it on. (However, many people frame their Hermes scarves so it would not have been a surprise).
I tried on at least 10 and the saleswoman was very nice and not snobby. And yes, they are gorgeous. Just trying them on is fun. If you do buy one just don’t forget to ask for the “Cartes A Nouer” (knotting cards which show you how to tie the scarf various ways). If you don’t ask, you won’t get a box of the cards.
