Smooth as Hermès Silk


Long-time client and stylist Barri Leiner Grant brought Foursided on Broadway a stunning piece for custom framing. Displaying and framing scarves is all the rage in contemporary styling and she would know (check out: barrileinergrant.com). This scarf in particular is a silk, limited edition 150th anniversary Jardin Enchante Hermès otherwise known as an anniversary homage to Central Park.


The motif presents a French garden with charming details including an ice cream vendor, clowns, nannies and children chasing butterflies. Colorways include hues of gold, red, grey, blue and more; on a black background. Dealing with a delicate fabric and one-of-a-kind piece such as this requires an expert hand and Foursided Framers are up to the challenge!

The fabric required yet another stitch mount, but in contrast to our stitch heavy antique collar pieces which required hours and hours, this piece needed only a few, very strategically placed stitches to let it fall correctly. Framing a luxury accessory like this requires a frame that can stand on its own feet. Never one to overshadow a piece, this sleek black lacquer finish frame is just modern enough to compliment the scarves’ design.


It’s complete! A couple stitches, one stunning custom frame and a precious keepsake come together to make the perfect conversation piece. Ladies and Gents unpack those closets and “bring in your scarves!”
