Hermes Restoration Specialist

Here at Handbag Clinic we take pride in the fact that over the years, we have become experts in many brands that we stock, one in particular being Hermès from specialist knowledge, authentication right through to restoration work.

CRAFTSMANSHIP AT ITS FINEST…

Hermès is known for its handmade luggage and handbags, which can take a craftsman 18 to 24 hours to handcraft. The construction of each Kelly bag, for example, requires 18 hours to fully realise. Hermès’ 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.

The bags are handmade in France using the company’s signature saddle stitching, developed in the 1800s. Each bag is hand-sewn, buffed, painted and polished, taking several days to finish. Leathers are obtained from different tanneries in France, resulting in varying smells and textures.
