An ABC of Hermès Crafts
A chanson de gestes: such was the definition of
Hermès proffered by a visitor being taken around the workshops one day. It is certainly a good
description, for those who see the house “from within”, of the humming, mysteriously busy hive
that is the reality behind the famous signature.
It is a “land of the hand”, a country whose extent and variety of activity few could imagine. An
incessant ballet of nimble fingers deftly working materials they master from start to finish.
