“It’s not really about the stitch… It’s about being aware of the sense of touch, being able to stitch with your eyes closed…being able to listen to what your hands tell you,” Pierre-Alexis Dumas described to Vanity Fair. This master leather worker and artistic director represents the newest generation of Hermès, a family-run company that began as a horse-harness shop in 1837. Although more than a century has passed since then, Hermès favors the same manufacturing principles its founders used in the 19th century. Every piece of leather is still stitched by hand using two needles threaded with waxed linen.
It’s for this reason that the Hermès brand has become synonymous with both luxury and a long wait. As Vanity Fair notes, “royal coronations were sometimes delayed until Hermès fittings for the carriage and the guard had arrived.” And of course, there’s also the wait for their highly covetable bags. Long after its debut, the Birkin bag has a wait list that can last years, a fashion phenomenon so unique that it inspired an entire episode of Sex and the City. In addition to their leather goods, the brand produces high-end men’s and women’s wear, silk scarves and ties, perfumes, and timeless accessories favored by everyone from the Queen of England to the enchanted mirror that hangs over her dressing table.
