Today I want to show you how I store my scarves and what I use when I take them with me on trips.
I have talked about the fabulous MaiTai Collection several times already in connection with my Hermès scarf hobby and today some of her practical and beautiful items are in the spotlight. I think of MaiTai as an Hermès support shop. 🙂
The “pochettes” are linen or cotton pouches for silk scarves. Here you see the three pochettes that hold almost my entire collection.
Above is the Toile de Jouy scarf travel pochette. It can be used for travel or just to keep your scarves safe at home, it saves a lot of space too.
The inside with Phoenix Mythiques peeking out. There are six “pages” where scarves can be inserted, you can also put scarves in between, taking the capacity up to ten.
Fully loaded. 🙂
Next up is the carré pochette, seen here in taupe linen. It is designed for carrying in your handbag so you can safely store your silk scarf whenever you need to take it off, or for (very) short trips when you take only one or two scarves. (Yes, scarf people are just as crazy as perfume people!)
The bigger of the two is the shawl pochette, it does the same for your large sized H goodies, shawls or GM silks.
Inside is an additional zipper pocket for smaller scarves and small compartments to put in your scarf rings – genius!
The two filled with 45 and 70 silk scarves and my pareo, respectively.
I used to use them for travel only, but the other day, I felt compelled to visually clean up my scarf drawer and put them all into the pochettes, where they are nicely tidied away.
This is my H silk drawer with the pochettes in place. Shawls, GM silks and my red mousseline stay “unpacked”.
I hope you enjoyed this peek into Scarfland today.
