In 1837, Thierry Hermes set up a Saddlery workshop which became the flagship location: 24 Faubourg Saint-Honore.
The Petit Sac à courroie pour dame, created in 1935, is renamed the Kelly after Grace Kelly famously carries it to hide her pregnancy.
When Jane Birkin complained to Hermes president Jean-Louis Dumas in the 1980s, the Birkin bag was created!
