Hermes’ supreme craftsmanship began in an equestrian workshop specializing in fine harnesses and bridles in 1837. Since, Hermes has mesmerized the world with its exceptional craftsmanship and designs such as the Birkin and Kelly. As two of the most desirable handbags, Hermes continues to assign one highly trained artisan to each handbag created. Each craftsman follows the Birkin or Kelly from start to finish: hand cutting and stitching, and melding hardware. Shop Portero’s Hermes collection.
