What is the history of Hermes? Thierry Hermès founded Hermès in 1837 as a harness workshop in Paris by serving the needs of European noblemen by providing saddles, bridles and equestrian leather riding gear. Hermes is a family-owned company.  Is Hermes still family-owned? Six generations later, Hermès family is now known for its exclusive Parisian fashion house and a $49.2 billion fortune. The head of Hermès today are two cousins: Pierre-Alexis and Axel Dumas.


Hermès was originally recognized for its finely crafted horse harnesses and carriages. Hermès enter the world of luxury handbags until 1922. Nowadays, Hermès  is best known for its handbags, socialite-approved purses and printed scarves.How did the Hermes rise to fame? What makes  Hermès famous? What is Hermès brand best known for?During the 1930s, Hermès launched some of its most recognized original goods such as the leather “Sac à dépêches” in 1935, which was renamed as “Kelly bag” after Grace Kelly.

Today, the Kelly bag from Hermes becomes a symbol of social status or a symbol of wealth for the socialites. And these bags are highly exclusive and hard to come by. It is said that the craftsman has to take about 18 to 24 hours to complete a bag. 


Grace Kelly, who lived from 1929 to 1982, acting in movies such as Fourteen Hours, Mogambo, Rear Window, Green Fire, The Swan, and High Society. She became one of the most influential actresses in Hollywood. She dedicated to married Prince Rainier III when they met the second time and she became the Princess Consort of Monaco, where is a Principality bordered by France.


She had a taste for fashion and Hermes happens to be one of her most loved brands. She carries the bag made by Hermes to the announcement of her engagement. She was found carrying Hermes during her pregnancy, which makes the brand rise to fame on a worldwide scale. And the mainstream public renamed it the “Kelly bag” and it began to grow in popularity among the so-called upper-class celebrities, which gives Hermes much exposure to the world too. 


Since then, Hermes has a strong connection with the iconic actress and Princess, which helped its reputation grow.  Each individual bag is made by only one craftsman. It is said that the bag of Hermes is crafted with the most expensive skins and leathers available. The lining of Kelly bag is made from goatskin and then the rest of the bag is made of durable leather.
