Hermès Middle East has introduced a limited-edition silk twilly to support the Education Above All (EAA) Foundation in its educational projects around the world, a statement said.
Aware of the values of education which are a strong and durable source of individual and social development, Hermès is actively engaged either directly or through its foundation, in programmes with schools and higher education establishments and support projects locally and around the world which will offer an opportunity to give access to education.
The dedicated silk twilly “Chevaux en liberté”, designed by French artist Jean-Louis Sauvat, features a pattern of horses in the colours of the Qatari flag. In a wind of freedom, the horses set out on an enthusiastic race. One after the other, they flaunt the elegance of their momentum along this twilly which Jean-Louis Sauvat envisioned as a praxinoscope, where every sequence of galop is broken down with scientific precision and artistic lightness. This limited-edition silk twilly will be available exclusively at the Hermès store in the Place Vendôme Mall in Doha.
This limited-edition silk twilly will contribute to support EAA working towards ensuring equal access to education and to harnessing the power of quality education for positive, sustainable, and inclusive change. Beyond education, EAA wants to shape children and youth into global leaders and agents of positive, sustainable change.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the foundation which has, to date supported over 12mn children and youth in more than 55 countries.
