Rarissim and amazing carre , model 'Les biches' from the great 'peintre animalier' Xavier de Poret issued in 1958 and offered here in soie SABREE
Hermes has edited a few designs, including those of Xavier de Poret with this fabric of silk "les satines" they called them. The process is called sabree. The art of the fur on the hinds is extremely long, difficult to make and requires the hands of experts : imagine that the woman take one by one the fibers of silk to put it outside, that' give this external thickness and soft velvet touch. It tooks days and hunderd of hours. The background is a marvelous warm beige champagne, the material is satined and thick, it is a splendor, a real art of work, an unique piece to frame or to wear!
