The French fashion empire Hermes, deemed to be one of the world’s most valuable luxury brands, Hermes has proven to transcend the luxury brand industry, while setting new trends and immortalizing their iconic products. The brand has become more than just a French high fashion house or a fashion brand, but owning a Hermes product has become a kind of experiential currency. It has continued to emphasize the value of hand craftsmanship and has continued to pay tribute to its rich history (therichest.com).

The only place showing signs of use is the canvas strap, professional cleaning should take care of this. The unlined interior of this bag is basically spotless, see photos. The inside seams of the inner pocket shows a little glue discoloration which is normal and due to age of the bag. All photographs can be magnified for a closer view by clicking directly on the photo.
