Hermès – Festival des Métiers

I had the pleasure of attending the Hermès exhibit last week at the Design Exchange in downtown Toronto. This exhibit was in place to celebrate the craftsmen who have helped make the brand what it is today. Hermès itself is such a renowned and regal brand, so I was pleased to see that they were taking the time to share with everyone what goes into their products.

I really had no idea what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised……

Upon entering the exhibit, it seemed very small, but there was lots to do. There were several stations throughout the room demonstrating each of Hermès’ products, and how they are made.

Each person at every station had been flown in from Paris, straight from the production line – these people were the real deal! It was so amazing to see each and every little detail that went into these products – which totally justifies the price.

Now I know most of you just want to see the Birkin’s, but we were only lucky enough to see the Kelly being made, which was good enough for me!

Now only $19,896 left to go until I can get my hands on a Birkin.
