A Tour of the Hermès' Factory in Pantin, France

There are certain nearly indefinable qualities that define each precision-crafted handbag from French fashion atelier Hermès. Prescribing to a belief that gives meaning to the word meticulous, the process begins with leather-hunters who track down rare and exotic skins from ostriches, rainbow lizards and crocodiles. Once the the materials are chosen, a bespoke bag will be completed from start to finish by a single leather artisan who typically uses the same set of tools throughout the entirety of their career. Maintaining that each step in the operation is functional and not decorative, the tradition of the brand is crystal clear upon observing the making of bags worthy of the renowned waiting times to acquire one.
