Hermes-A silk Mountain Zebra scarf designed by Alice Shirley in a turquoise colour way, 90cm x 90cm, having hand-rolled edges, never worn, complete with original branded scarf box and ribbon. Condition:As new.

The Hermes Story behind the scarf-The Cape mountain zebra is a rare protected species found in the south-eastern provinces of South Africa. Alice Shirley’s design is modelled on a foal that has wandered off to explore the fynbos, the unique vegetation of the southernmost region of the country. It grows in poor soil, and is regenerated by the bush fires sparked by lightning in the dry season. In spring, the fynbos transforms into a fragrant, multi-coloured carpet of flowers, a dreamlike vista. The artist has reproduced almost forty different plants to create a sumptuous setting for the little zebra.
