BONHOMME  |  ESCAPE SCARF

Vintage British Army Map  |  Beirut / Damascus / Al Jauf

During the second war, the British army created a secret organisation called MI-9, in charge of providing the pilots with escape maps.

Christopher Clayton Hutton, a RAF skilled pilot, developed a set of objects for that purpose. The escape scarf being the most iconic object of the set.

Printing military maps on silk scraps then on rayon presented several interests: providing information to the military about their area on an easy to conceal map, hard wearing and quietly unfoldable.

Authentic vintage scarf from 1957 – Not a reproduction.

To soften the fabric, wash scarf by hand.
