"Kachinas" was designed by Texan, Kermit Oliver, the only American artist ever engaged by Hermès to create designs for scarves, clothing and other items. His design was inspired by the religous beliefs of the Hopis of the southwest United States . A kachina doll for the Hopis represents a household spirit. The Hopis have over a hundred kachinas - each one with a special function. This design was first issued as part of the Hermès 1992 Spring/Winter Collection. The design was reissued as part of the 1997/1998 Autumn/Winter Collection, again for 2004 spring/summer, and in 2010 and 2102 as 140cm cashmere/sillks. The colorway and the attached long white fabric/care dates this carre̒ as a 1992 original issue.
The colorway features a steel blue and crimson border on a mint green, light blue, sky blue, yellow and tangerine orange background with design details rendered mainly in white, black, vanilla, taupe, crimson and steel blue.
