The Confetti Bag ~ Vintage Hermès Carré ‘Cent Plis Des Miao’
The Confetti is a collection of totally unique silk scarf bags that are handcrafted by a renowned couturier in Germany. The exterior of these bags are made from a selection of vintage silk scarves that we carefully sourced throughout Europe. Each bag is lined with exclusive linen Ikat by the South African based company Whiteman & Mellor.
This particular piece is made using an Hermès Silk Carré ‘Cent Plis Des Miao' designed by Aline Honore and comes with a removable gold toned metal chain strap, that is twisted with a silk strap out of the same scarf.
The Confetti bag looks stunning paired with one of our eclectic Kaftans or styled on its own as an eye-catcher with a contemporary outfits - the perfect choice for making a fashion statement with very little effort.
A little background of the print - it was first released in 2010 by Aline Honore. Cent Plis de Miao depicts a skirt traditionally worn by tribeswomen from the Miao culture. Almost four million people of the Miao live in China (there are also tribes in Vietnam and Laos, where they’re called “Hmong”). The name Miao means “raw rice”. The skirt in the scarf design is often mentioned in songs and folk tales and is an important element of the culture. The fabrics are pleated, a technique believed to be inspired by mushroom gills. The finer the pleats, the higher the value of the dress. One of the most prolific designers in the service of Hermès, Aline Honoré has created an inspired design, depicting the skirt in all its splendour. Spread across the background is another type of fabric design that the Miao women wear tied around their legs, whose patterns are squares and lines.
