Hermès Creates Limited Edition Scarf for World Horse Welfare

30 October 2014
World Horse Welfare

GLOBAL - Luxury French fashion house, Hermès, has created a limited edition silk scarf for international horse charity, World Horse Welfare, to help raise money for its vital work in the UK and around the world.

The horse has been at the heart of the company since founder Thierry Hermès established a leatherwork shop in Paris in 1837 and became renowned for his exceptional expertise in harness-making.

World Horse Welfare has been working hard to improve welfare standards for all horses all over the world for almost 90 years and is delighted to be the beneficiary of proceeds from the sale of this scarf in the Year of the Horse.

World Horse Welfare’s Director of Fundraising, John Blake, said: “The charity is very privileged to be involved in this exciting project and thrilled to now be able to share this exciting news.

"We are so grateful to Hermès for creating this new and specially designed silk composition 'A cheval sur mon carré' (A horse on my scarf).

“A limited number only are now on sale and we want to ensure that our supporters get a chance to own one of these beautifully crafted pieces, whilst helping to raise money for horses across the globe. Proceeds from these 300 scarves will go towards the scope of the charity's work in the UK and around the world."

The scarf was officially launched at a lunch attended by 80 guests from across the equestrian world who share a love of horses. The event was kindly organised by Tatler magazine and hosted by The Connaught Hotel in London on October 23rd.

The scarves retail at £310 and are available to purchase from Hermès’ online shop or by contacting Hermès stores throughout the UK now.
