Firstly, I would like to wish everybody on the planet a Happy & Healthy New Year
Here are some before and after pics of our pleating restoration project on some Hermes scarves. They were the victim of some unfortunate accident, but we were determined to restore these scarves back to their original beauty. What do you think?
This is what they looked like when we received them.
Notice in the close up photo below how some sections are more pleated than the other.
We had to press open all the pleating to get the scarves back to their original square shape. This was just as labor intensive as the repleating process! If this is not done correctly you can damage the scarf as it is pleated on the bias. TRICKY!!!
Below is the finished product. Absolutely stunning!
