Hermes Throw in jacquard woven wool and cashmere, model in Jaquard Woven Wool, and ashmere, blanket stitch finishing, Made in Scotland, designed by Henri D'Origny.
The Tatersale design was created by Henri d'Origny in 1980 for a silk scarf. The original design featured four horse heads facing each other. Positioned in this way and wearing blinkers fastened with several knots, the horses become stylized figurines. Tattersalls: this is the name of the world's most prestigious equestrian auction house, founded in England in 1766. It is also the name of this fabric used for scarves. Tatersale? One of the numerous different spellings of this name which, like many family names, has changed over the centuries. Understated, precise and structured, the scarf showcased the various components of the harnesses used during horse shows: canvas straps, steel horse bits, leather bridles... Equestrian art requires a real arsenal that Henri d'Origny used as decorative elements overlapping to form seductive geometric compositions, sometimes twirling or made up of arabesques, sometimes calm and sensible like here, sitting firmly on the scarf. This iconic design, which has been updated and rethought, is now featured on a throw where two horse heads face each other and flaunt contrasting colors.
