Hermès International S.A. or simply Hermès is a French high fashion luxury goods manufacturer established in 1837. It specializes in leather, lifestyle accessories, home furnishings, perfumery, jewellery, watches and ready-to-wear.
Hermès is known for its handmade luggage and handbags. One of them might require 18 to 24 hours to produce. The construction of each Kelly bag, for example, requires 18 hours to fully realize. Hermès’s leathers come from all over the world. Customers may currently wait from six months to one year for delivery of one of the house’s signature bags.
Another famous Hermès handbag, the “Birkin”, was named after English actress Jane Birkin. After a chance encounter with Jean-Louis Dumas, she complained that her “Kelly” bag was not practical for everyday use. Consequently, he invited her to France where they co-designed the bag in 1984
