The Tale of Silk


I love the border on this Hermès cashmere and silk shawl.

Only on view a few more days -- through October 7 -- at the Shanghai Art Museum is an exhibition, “The Tale of Silk,” featuring work by Hilton McConnico. The artist makes connections between Asia, homeland of silk, and Hermès, which has been printing the material for seventy years.
