Repairing a Silk Scarf

I was given a superb vintage Hermes scarf by my mother-in-law. It has a poorly repaired tear which was done many years ago. I would like to have it rewoven or repaired correctly. The local Hermes shops cannot recommend anyone and I have asked for the address of the Paris shop manager and/or administrative office but have not gotten a reply.


Any suggestions?

Look for a tailor or seamstress in your town-try the dry cleaners, and the high end bridal departments, too. Both establishments usually have a staff of truly expert needle-persons who can repair your vintage scarf.

Another place to look would be the fine needlework shop in your area-where ever specialty wools and fine embroidery threads are sold you will find expert needle-persons who can do the work and would welcome the challenge your scarf presents. Ask the manager if he/she can suggest someone, they usually have a list behind the counter or in the office of skilled embroiderers who take on outside work.


You could also try an advert on CraigsList or whatever local bulletin board is available in your area. Make sure you see examples of the work before entrusting your scarf to a stranger.
