Hermès : Timeless classics

Hermès was established in 1837 by Thierry Hermès who began the company by producing horse harnesses for European noblemen. Hermès won prizes for quality and workmanship in the Expositions Universelles in Paris in 1867. His son Charles took over the management and in 1880, moved the workshop to 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris center, where the shop still stands today.

    In 1900 the firm offered a carry bag for riders to carry their saddles called Haut à Courroies . This H.A.C bag  was the forerunner to the modern Kelly and  Birkin Bags.

Later in 1914 Charles two sons took over Hermès  and secured exclusive rights in France to the  “zipper”. They used the device for fastening many of  their leather products . Called the “Hermès fastener”,  it was first used to fasten a leather golf jacket for the Prince of Wales.

In 1922 the company then began production of women’s handbags. In 1935 the leather Sac à dépêches was introduced (later renamed the “Kelly bag” after Grace Kelly), and  in 1937  Hermès began production of their now legendary silk carrés (scarves) .

Hermes International SCA said 2012 profitability reached a record level as sales rose 23 percent, driven by demand for its $10,000 Birkin bags in markets across the globe.
