History

From 1821 to 1837, Thierry Hermès begins as an apprentice in a manufacture of craftsman-saddler in Pont-Audemer, in Normandy. He then opens his first manufacture in Paris, where he designs harnesses, equipments and accessories for horses. In the 19th century, the house extends manufacture to luggages, which were first dedicated for the transportation of horse equipment. From horses to individuals, a clothing collection is developed in the 1930s. Watches, jewellery, silverware, house accessories are developed in the 1960s. The Duc carriage with a horse is recognised worldwide, silk and leather being the DNA of the house. Hermès International, still belonging to the Hermès family, is member of COMITÉ COLBERT.
