purseblog's guide to hermes leathers

 

An informative post from Purseblog: a picture guide to the different types of leathers Hermes uses to make their handbags. Hermes, the French luxury goods manufacturer, makes two of the most recognized and expensive handbags in the world, the Birkin and the Kelly.  Bags worthy of their own blog! The photos show how varied leather can be, in texture of course, but also in weight, feel, and what I call "resistance to daily use". Enjoy!
