A Hermes Birkin bag to see what material, from seven thousand U.S. dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Shanghai, Hang Lung arrayed a Hermes store, seventy thousand yuan. But even so expensive purchase through the back door and walk in relationship, if neatly lined up, you wait, wait five years, not fresh.
Many luxury brands known handmade, in fact, not pure handmade, Hermes Birkin is a house artisans and sewing machines, hand on you, my last zipper assembly line. Hermes bags production, considered downright hand. A Hermes Kelly, by the same craftsmen, wearing a leather apron, took an awl and dipped wax twine, stitch by stitch, with three days to complete. Craftsman packages posture, a bit like we were young cobbler. Hermes bags made of magic, is an ancestral needle, called double saddle stitching. This can only be hand-stitch, sewing machine can not be used instead. Hermes craftsmen, all of them trained in a stunt, and some people in the future it alone, relying on many years of experience in the old mill, but also very popular.
In addition to strictly handmade, Hermes leather is particularly picky. One time a friend went to Paris to visit the Hermes workshop, back told me her horizons. Workshop, I saw a pile on the table artisan leather, gathered all who come to visit the past, he touched admiring how perfect it looks like leather, feels how comfortable. Results, Hermes said, these are all leather scrap, there is a little bit flawed, though a layman can not see, nor can. Similarly, if a Hermes bag has a little bit in the manual is not perfect, will be mercilessly scrapped. Scrapped Hermes bags have all been brutally destroyed, not allowed to handle it with.
