French manufacturer introduces mantles with Armenian letters
Marking the 25th anniversary of the Protestant Solidarity
France-Armenia (SFPA) charitable organization, Pierre-Alexis Dumas, who
is artistic director of Herm??s?€”a French manufacturer specializing in
leather, lifestyle accessories, perfumery, luxury goods, and
ready-to-wear?€”on Monday introduced their new square mantles titled
Letters of Yerevan.
The mantles were sewn by Karen P?©trossian, and in honor of Mesrop
Mashtots, the inventor of the Armenian alphabet. The mantles will be in a
very limited amount, and the proceeds from their sale will be
transferred to the SFPA Armenia Office. This is the second time that
Herm??s assists this charitable organization. Ten years ago, it
manufactured scarves titled The Gardens of Armenia.
"I am astonished at the efficiency and diligence if this nation, which has gone through thousands of ordeals," Dumas said.
The mantles will be on sale as of April 2015, and they will cost 330 euros.source:
