Festival Des Metiers

This week I took a trip to the Saatchi Gallery to explore the Hermes Festival Des Metiers exhibition. The two gallery spaces gave you a chance to meet the craftsmen and see how they work to produce their signature silk scarves, jersey womenswear garments, diamond pyramid cuffs, watches and the famous Kelly handbag. The super-talented workers train for at least four years, with the lovely lady who showcased how the jersey & silk t-shirts were hand produced, having worked with Hermes for 24 years! I really enjoyed watching how the Kelly bag was made and have such an appreciation for how these products are all hand rendered with such attention to detail by amazing Parisian craftsmen & women- for me this really justifies their price points.
