  1. My gorgeous medium black scarf ring arrived today, and I adore it! The packaging is so lovely, with such an attention to detail that is soooo "Mai Tai"! Thank you for making these gems, and I can't wait to wear mine with my new La Femme in the black cw!

  2. Oh, my. I can't believe my luck at stumbling upon your scarf rings. I inherited a beautiful collection of two dozen or so Hermes scarves from my mother. I'm not sure which size to buy and am wondering if you could help me. The majority are the standard 90cm silk with 2-3 of the larger cashmere/silk shawls (about 137cm square). I first thought the "Grande" but then worried it would overpower me (I'm just 5' tall). So the medium? But would it be only just big enough for the 90s. Any advice you can give is appreciated. It seems that the Moyenne is the most popular.

  3. Bonjour et bienvenue, St Germain! Happy you have found my blog. For 90 Carrés the Grande size is perfect, it lets you create the basic slide, criss-cross, snowball and twist wrap. The main use of the Moyenne is with the smaller silks, ie 70 Carrés, Gavroches, Mousselines and Pointus. With a 90 Carré, you can use the Moyenne for a cowboy knot and shoulder wrap. For the GM shawls (cashmere/silk) any of the sizes are too small.

  6. Hello! I love the Mother of Pearl scarf ring! Will you be stocking it in the Grande size?

  7. Happy to hear you like the MoP rings, thank you. The Grande size is difficult, due to the hard to manipulate nature of the MoP, and the size of the ring. Please drop me an email if you would like to be notified when stock comes in. maitaicollection@orange.fr

  8. Hi Mai Tai, is the grande size too big to be used for the shoulder wrap? Thank you.

    Regards,
    Anthea

  9. Yes, Anthea, the grande would be too big, as there is not a lot of fabric where you secure the ends. Instead of a scarf ring, you could make a small double knot though :)
