Their original line up includes traditional horse riding accessories, and has now extended to designing and manufacturing of authentically styled home decor, jewelry, luggage, fragrances, silk scarves, and leather bags. Herm'¨s bags have grown to become one of the most highly sought after style of bags. Each Herm'¨s bag is handmade with exquisite craftsmanship and is considered flawless in terms of style and attitude. These bags are prepared from the finest exotic leather, such as those derived from alligators, crocodiles, and even ostriches. They include features such as interior pockets, flap closure, locking twist clasp, dual top handle, palladium hardware, veau crispe togo leather, and protective feet. Manufactured in a variety of elegant colors and different measures, it takes a single craftsman an average of 18 to 24 hours to produce a single Herm'¨s bag. Jean Paul Gaultier, who designs for Herm'¨s revised the very popular traditional Herm'¨s 'Birkin' bag to make it more suitable and useful. Though the new design was an instant hit, the demand for the traditional Herm'¨s 'Birkin' bag has not dwindled. One style of Herm'¨s bag was termed 'The Kelly', after that style of bag was sported by Grace Kelly on the cover of 'Life' magazine, hence shooting the design towards success in sales and wider acclaim. The 'Birkin' bag was named after actress Jane Birkin, as she assisted in the designing of the same. The current waiting line for 'Birkin' bags is for over two years.
