Back home

My deep and heartfelt thank you to all who left comments or sent messages of support while I was away. Your warm words and kind good wishes gave me comfort in the very sad times I have had lately. As some of you know already, I lost my mother last week.

We were scarf twins on the 'Présentation de Chevaux'. The warm and sumptuous golden-yellow glow of my mother's CW suited her so very well.

Whereas I was attracted to the storm-grey issue, which came out about 15 years later

The way the different colouring changes the atmosphere of the design,

reminds me of how all things that are passed from mother to daughter express themselves in new and different ways; very individual, and yet at the same time deeply rooted in the foundations that the mother has laid.

Bringing both scarves together, tied in the friendship knot.

Scarf tying method: fold both Carrés in the basic bias, and tie them together on one end with a petite scarf ring or small double knot, in the same way as shown with Gavroches before. Then, wind around your neck twice and tie the ends in a friendship knot. A how-to video for the friendship knot will follow soon.

My mother, when she and my father just met

Her beautiful smile was her last gift to me when she passed away. I will always treasure it.

  2. What a beautiful tribute knot to your mother. Wearing my own mother's carres over the last few years has been an important part of my honoring her. She passed away in 2006, when she was 61 and I 36. I'm sure you will find the same joy in wearing your own mother's scarves. Someone once said to me (and it has held true): it never hurts less, just hurts less often. I hope it is true for you too one day.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my mother about a year ago. I'd like to think what St.Germain (above comment) said is true -- that it never hurts less, just less often.

    But I have to be honest. I was numb for 6 months after it happened. At this point, not a day goes by without me thinking, "I can't believe this actually happened." I hope the "less often" part starts soon.

    My thoughts are with you.

  10. Dear MaiTai,
    she is not there with you in flesh and bones, but she is your Guardian Angel now, the most poweful one, and she will make you feel she is close to you to support you every single day of your life.

    I have been reading your blog for some time now and left a comment last time, but it was lost unfortunately...I do not belong to the "H" world but I DO use my mum's scarves as she cannot use any because she is seriously ill and in bed, so I wear them, they remind me of my happy childhood when she was the one wearing them and this warms my heart a little...

    In the picture you have posted your smile has turned into a sad frown, try and smile again as soon as you can, your mum will love it...

  12. Dear MaiTai, I like you very much as a person although we have never met, for your blog and your beautiful e-mails when ordering my scarf rings, I would so much like to be close to you and give you a hug, as I remember how important it was to me to have support in the same moment of my life.
    Be strong, with best wishes, Lilian

  14. Dear MaiTai,

    My deepest condolences to you and your family for your enormous loss.

    Your posting made me cry since I know how it is to loose a mother. There just are now words for comfort - only time will heal. In time also the pain will diminish. It will.

    I became a scarf collector as a tribute to my mother.

    You wrote so beautifully about the knot between mother and daughter. I think that your metaphor about the scarves, the knot and the bond and the relationship between mother and daughter just told us perfectly how special person your mother has been and what a remarkable daughter she has.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, all the best.

  16. Dear MaiTai, I do not exactly remember how I happened on to your blog - perhaps it was from a forum, or from a simple Hermes search. It was a year or so ago, and ...I have been visiting it ever since. It is beautiful and cheerful, and it allowed me to look at my (modest) Hermes collection in a different light. I thank you for that, and I am very sorry for your loss. My deep condolences to you and your family.

  18. Dearest MaiTai,
    My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your beloved mother.
    Your post on her really conveyed the deep and loving relationship.
    I lost my mother 25 years ago and the words St Germain wrote are certainly true for me.
    I too have one of her favourite scarfs which I wear regularly and still after all these years seems to hold have her scent. When ever I wear it I feel she is with me.
    Take care

  19. Dearest one, I am so sorry for your loss. While I cannot imagine your sadness, I know it will be mine one day.
    My mother suffered a mild stroke Easter 2009, and while these events are a sort of preparation, I cannot imagine that they serve to equip us for that final loss.

    My heart goes out to you. My hope is that you have a strong support network to help you through this time of grief.

  20. Dear Maitai,

    I am so sorry to hear about your devastating loss, remember though that "they are not gone who live on in the hearts of those they left behind."

    Thank you for sharing your lovely post, the combination of your scarf & your Mother's was very emotional! I feel that silk scarves carry so much love, emotion and meaning - I'm sure you will treasure your Mother's scarves for many, many years to come.

    Take your time and I know that some day soon your beautiful smile will return to match your stunningly beautiful scarves.

    Take Care,

    M

  21. I am so sorry for your loss - I lost my mother almost 10 years ago and I miss her almost every day still. Time will help ease the pain but, it will never go away.My mother collected Hermes scarves and my greatest joy is wearing some of her originals today.
    I plan to wear this new knot tomorrow as a tribute to all of our lovely mothers.

    My deepest sympathies on the loss of your mother. I've lost both my parents and understand the depth of your loss. When my parents died I felt truly alone - and truly adult. I know that with the passing of friends and family we feel the loss of those people that "know our stories" and have witnessed the highs and lows in our lives.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult days.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved grandfather just 6 weeks ago. When my grandmother told me that he used to love the colour yellow (which I never knew, although we were quite close) I wore the first carré I got - a yellow "per astra ad astra" - to his funeral. My thoughts will be with you in this terribly sad time.

  84. Hello Mai Tai,
    We are all very, very sad to hear about your Mum going up to Heaven.
    You are very sad, and it's good to be sad and cry lots and lots.
    You know MaiTai, Chihuahuas are very good company when you are sad, and when you are happy, and when you are asleep, oh, just all the time!

    Sorry MaiTai - Arnie started on about himself as usual. I have removed him from the computer.

    So sad for you, hope your Christmas is a happy one despite your loss.

    Lots

  85. Cher Mdm MaiTai,

    I know your mum was as beautiful as you, because your matching scarves have puppies on them.
    Not Chihuahuas I know, but still ....... they are very cute for French Dogs.

    In case you need a Chihuahua to comfort you, My MUM has LEFT me (and Arnie) and run away to see Santa Claus.
    If you want to adopt me, I come with a wardrobe of Hermes Scarves, Twillys, An Hermes Bangle thing with that stuff I can't spell on it, A BIG cashmere Hermes Scarf, two hippos (handbag locks) and a tiny H bag, oh and an orange leather bracelet I wear around my neck, the hippo goes on it.
    Surely you want me to cheer you up, I'm sure I would like French food, and I already love Hermes.

    Lots of love and licks for you in your very sad time Mdm MaiTai

  93. My condolences on your loss. There is never a good time to lose your mother, and the holidays are a particularly hard time to go through it. I lost my mother this time of year 7 years ago.

  97. Dear MaiTai,
    I have written a long post then erased it, and now I am with a long one again.
    I have lost my father 6 years ago. It was a long and severe illness which he fought courageously. And I was lucky enough to come for my vacation and see him only 1 week before he was gone. And I was never realising at the moment that his condition was just on the brim. It looks like my mind was absolutely blind to the facts at the moment - it just did not want to soak in the signs.
    The part that was really breaking me is the absence and inability to get the feedback from him anymore. I developped since then a habit of one-sided conversations with him though.
    It is understandable that it is natural - to be born and grow and pass away, and the inevitability of the circle is normally kept outside of our look. But then it strikes no matter how long the person was ill.
    When dad was gone, I felt however that it is not the end, but some sort of transformation.I beleive English expression to pass away is very good for that - it is just a departure of the person to somewhere we do not know just where.
    Let you find inner balance and peace.
    Anna
