Hermes' Heritage in Madrid

The French are following me.

I am writing from Madrid but how could I resist a Hermes exhibition where exquist artisans of THE luxury brand were showing off their know-how?

What would you do if you had the chance to meet Hermes' chef d'atelier and watch him meticoulsly print colour after colour on the most delicate silk carré.

I was allowed a glimps of the fabrication of the unequaled, globally idolized, exclusive Kelly bag and discovered some tricks of the trade on assembling and sewing devine leather saddles by hand.

This exhibit was an intimate, instructive and enjoyable discovery into the world of fabrication of the epitomy of luxury symbols. A constructive and refreshing change to the retail frenzy that this brand usually evokes.
