A luxury French fashion label has created a limited edition silk scarf for a Norfolk based international horse charity.
World-renowned brand, Hermès, has designed the scarf for World Horse Welfare, based in Snetterton, to help raise money for its vital work in the UK and around the world.
World Horse Welfare's Director of Fundraising, John Blake, said: 'The charity is very privileged to be involved in this exciting project and thrilled to now be able to share this exciting news.
'We are so grateful to Hermès for creating this new and specially designed silk composition 'A cheval sur mon carré' (A horse on my scarf).
'A limited number only are now on sale and we want to ensure that our supporters get a chance to own one of these beautifully crafted pieces, while helping to raise money for horses across the globe. Proceeds from these 300 scarves will go towards the scope of the charity's work in the UK and around the world.'

The horse has been at the heart of the brand's image since founder Thierry Hermès established a leatherwork shop in Paris in 1837 and became renowned for his exceptional expertise in harness-making.
Today, it is still very much a source of inspiration throughout Hermès' 16 different product categories including hand-crafted saddles, handbags and of course scarves.
