Hermès is the name of a house, but it is above all the name of a family that, for almost two centuries, has written the history of a Parisian company founded on expertise and high quality, tradition and innovation. From harness-maker to saddler, Hermès now deploys its creativity across 14 crafts. The keywords have remained the same: exacting standards and authenticity, elegance and sobriety, fantasy and audacity. Hermès is an independent, family-owned company that continues its French tradition of craftsmanship. Hermès designs, sells and manufactures beautiful, useful and lasting objects.
