Description
Hermès per collezionisti - CYCLES raro cat. Arfon 1A carrè foulard 90
Multicolour - Silk

This pattern, by Hugo Grygkar (never signed his work), was born with the name Cycles in 1953. In the Arfon catalogue it is 1A, where 1 = very rare; A = highly sought-after. In 1974 and in 1990 there were two reissues of the design, but this time it was called Les Becanes, adding the name between the two bicycles on the bottom. The last photos were taken from the Arfon catalogue, and as you can see, in the green foulard (Cycles) an inscription is missing which is present in the red one (Les Becanes) between the two bicycles on the bottom. As you can see, the first is 1A, the following are 3C and 4C. I will also add the photos of the levels of rarity from the Arfon catalogue.

The carré is in good condition for its age (66 years), it has been washed by mean, on the advice of an expert. The caravan is in good condition. It has a ginning that is evident in the last two photos, which is not a hole and which cannot be seen with the naked eye. Missing composition label. No copyright, like all the foulards up the mid 1950s.
