About Hermes

Hermes (Hermès) - The world's most valuable luxury brand

French high fashion luxury brand Hermes has a history that spans over 150 years. Hermes products are known for being simple, elegant and timeless. A great representation of these elements is the highly sought-after Hermes Kelly bag. Inspired by the iconic Grace Kelly, the Kelly bag itself is now a legendary fixture in the Hermes handbag line-up. The famous Hermes Birkin bag is another namesake item, titled after British actress Jane Birkin. The Birkin bag has the longest waiting list for an accessory today, reported to be around six years! These legendary handbags are stitched by hand and crafted by a single, one-of-a-kind artisan in Paris. Hermes is also the brand behind what is considered the definitive luxury silk scarf. Made popular by celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, one Hermes scarf is sold every 20 seconds and takes a full 18 months to produce. This process makes Hermes scarves one of the most meticulously crafted accessories in the world. As a brand that appeals to men and women of all ages, from the working class to debutantes, Hermes offers pieces that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Hermes International S.A. (also referred to as Hermes of Paris) was established in 1837 in Paris, France. The brand's logo has been a Duc horse-drawn carriage since the 1950s, in reference to Hermes's humble beginnings as a harness workshop in the Grands Boulevards quarter of Paris. Hermes now specializes in leather, lifestyle accessories, home furnishings, perfume, jewelry, watches and ready-to-wear items. The first Hermes store in Japan opened in Tokyo's Marunouchi district in 1978.

Founder Thierry Hermes created some of most finely wrought harnesses and bridles in the carriage trade. Hermes eventually became one of the most famous saddlery retailers and also began to produce leather bags for various equestrian purposes such as feeding horses, housing saddles and carrying rider accessories like boots, whips and riding hats. The brand has come a long way and now boasts over 240 stores worldwide and famous clientele like Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Kidman.

Hermes is loved all over the world for its continuing legacy of top-quality products. Rest assured that every aspect of each Hermes bag, from leather to hardware, is cautiously inspected to ensure absolute perfection. The fact that Hermes creations remain relevant after a brand history of over 150 years is a testament to the fashion house's design brilliance and luxurious quality.
