“One of the greatest investments”

Hermès is a traditional French fashion house and family business founded in 1837 in Paris. Starting with the manufacture of saddles and bridle for horses, the company has developed over time to one of the most exclusive manufacturers of fashion, handbags and accessories. Nevertheless, one has always remained true to his roots and the unique craftsmanship is the basis of the identity of Hermes. This will continue to offer high-quality products in equestrian sports. The brand stands for noblest materials, highest quality, creative freedom and sustainable entrepreneurial work. The glitter of the glamor comes mainly from the two most prominent handbags on offer: the Kelly Bag and the Birkin Bag.

First of all, the Bag only moderately successful, that changed in 1956 abruptly, as the famous actress and later princess of Monaco Grace Kelly, on the day of her engagement with such a Bag was photographed. The pioneer of this unique love relationship was not less than Alfred Hitchcok, in whose classic "to Catch A Thief" carries the actress Hermès Accessories. The name Grace Kelly was thus for eternity with the Bag connected and Hermès named the Bag Immediately around in Kelly Bag. Birkin Bag The Legend is said to help the then President of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas, on a flight from Paris to London of the well-known actress Jane Birkin, the content of her Bag Collect together. With your desire for a stylish leather case for the weekend, which offers enough space, you came to open ears at Dumas. The first design is to be created in the plane on a napkin. Each produced model is a custom-made customer request and the elaborate production process has long been a standard waiting times. Hermes consciously decided to extend production or outsource in low-wage countries. This scarcity increases demand again, which prices drives to the height. Meanwhile, they even apply as an alternative value system.
