MaiTai Collection - Carré Pochette

I am very happy to introduce a new member to the MaiTai Collection family today.

The new Carré Pochette compliments the larger scarf travel pochette, and is perfect for when you are out during the day and need to take your scarf off, or change it for another.

Although designed for safe and easy handbag storage, the Carré Pochette is a charming and chic companion on short trips too. You can easily fit in up to four scarves (2x 90 carrés and 2x smaller formats), and also include a couple of scarf rings or other small jewellry items.

Made in France, from 100% natural linen. Nettoyage à sec/dry clean only.

 

The pochettes have two compartments. One is open and ideal for storing a 90 carrée (or smaller formats)


The other has a zip, and can hold one or two additional smaller scarves (Twillys, Gavroches, 70 carrés), and small jewellry items.



The zip compartment also has three individual internal pockets, which provide safe storage for your scarf rings or jewellry, protecting them from getting scratched or lost.


Made in France, from 100% natural embroidered french linen.

 

They come in four beautiful soft colors, matching the MaiTai Collection 'Lavande de Provence' lavender sachets


Although designed to carry a single 90 Carré, you can fit two inside


or add a lavender sachet for a wonderful fresh scent...


Natural woven linen is lightweight and breathable. It is crisp when freshly ironed, and  falls into relaxed folds and creases after use.


inside the zip compartment

 

In winter, the pochette is ideal for keeping your gloves safe and protected, and easy to find in your bag


Available colors, from left to right: gris, lilac, taupe and rose 


The pochettes cost 36 EUR (plus shipping), and can be ordered through here: www.maitaihomecollection.com/carre-pochette

Have a wonderful week everyone xx

    1. You made me laugh, my dearest friend! I’ve got a few more ideas on the back burner..
      things you might not know yet that you’ll need…;-) Hope you’ll keep some of the sachets for yourself this time! Have a most wonderful weekend xx

  5. What an excellent idea MaiTai! If you leave your house when the weather is good and it changes during the day you can safely store your scarf in your purse so it won't be damaged from the rain or snow. You are always so innovative. :)

    1. Thank you, K! The same is true for summer… whenever the temperatures rise in the afternoon, our scarves can retire safely into their linen homes :-)

  8. C'est magnifique! This pochette is just what I've been waiting for. I don't know how many times I've ripped a scarf off and stuffed it in my bag when a sudden storm has come up, or if I've decided it's just suddenly too hot, or I don't want to splash salad dressing on it! The poor carre just flounders around in the bag, subject to all kinds of potential catastrophes.

    And, the pochette is so pretty - the embroidery is just lovely. I couldn't narrow my choice of color to just one, so I pigged out a bit and ordered one in gris and another in taupe. Oink!

    Each item you design is somehow just a bit lovelier than the one that preceded it. I'm always amazed at your creativity and your ability to offer us such lovely and useful "necessities." We thank you; our scarves thank you.

    1. Oh my dear Jerrine, your description of the pochettes and their benefits is so much better than mine! Had to laugh at the salad dressing… oil based stains are so much the worst! Your ‘necessities’ are on their way. Thanks so much again, and hope your beautiful scarves will feel right at home in them!

  10. My dearest MaiTai,

    You are just amazing! As dear Trudye wrote, you know what we need "before we know we need it ". Congratulations! This new addition to the MaiTai Collection is already a favourite of mine <3
    The small pochetes are adorable, their colours so feminine and elegant! I am so happy that there is also place for the scarf rings as well. Please do keep on creating beautiful things for us! Sunny hugs from Copenhagen, Manuela

    1. Thanks so much, my dearest Manuela! I can just imagine how lovely these will look in your pretty closet. Love the scarf ring pockets too, and they are more versatile than I initially thought… on my last overnight trip to Paris they held all my jewellery as well x

  11. Oh my, MaiTai!!!

    Who ever knew that beauty+function co-exist so harmoniously...YOU knew (of course!).

    I especially love how you've shown us how to use this beautiful accessory for scarves, gloves, jewelry, sachets, and more.

    MaiTai, you are a genius!

    Thank you again for sharing your beautiful world w/ us. It's always such a joy to stop by your blog and behold.

  13. Greetings from London! How I wish that I one of these darling pochettes with me, right now! I plan to order one as soon as I get home. Exquisite and useful...what could be better?
    I have my trusty magnets with me...which prompted a "pat down" at the airport :) (I forgot that I had used them to secure my 70cm Rendevous Rive Gauche under my white tee shirt)

    Thank you for keeping our silks in good order! I always look forward to your new designs.
