FASHION Shoes and Accessories

A Virtual Trip to the Hermès Factory

If I told you to imagine the Hermès scarf factory in Lyon, I could just say, “Think of the opposite of Forever 21,” but I decided photographic evidence would be better.  The Hermès factory shouldn’t be called a factory – a “five-star sanctuary where scarves are born” is more like it. Before you say to yourself, “Ugh, silk scarves are so 1937,” allow me to inform you that an Hermès scarf-knotting app will soon be released (I’m serious). This is also a good time to reconcile your begrudging feelings against Hermès scarves and their extra-high price tags. Once you finish your photo journey through this slideshow, you’ll realize the intense artistry, craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality, and you’ll be like, “Ohh ok ok, the price makes perfect sense. I still can’t afford it, though.”
