Everyone knows and loves the famous Hermes Birkin Bag, but the Hermes Kelly Bag has been becoming more and more popular with celebrities and fashionistas alike! But if we want to understand everyone’s fascination with this Kelly Bag, it is important to understand the history behind it! Hermes was originally established in 1837 making harnesses and saddles for horses before becoming extremely well known for its beautiful luxury handbags. In 1930, Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, became the unofficial muse for Hermes. Kelly often used the bag to shield her baby bump from the paparazzi with hopes of some privacy. After being photographed with it all of the time, Hermes decided to rename it after her. Thus, we had the Kelly bag!
The Kelly Bag was a favorite bag for the public especially during the 1950’s when Hollywood Glamor was all the rage, but it has remained an icon ever since. It truly is an investment piece and is made to last your whole lifetime. Each bag is made by only one experienced craftsman and each bag can take up to 18 hours to make. It’s incredible craftsmanship is often what attracts the buyer along with its celebrity-like status.Goat skins are used for the lining of the bag, and outside is usually made from crocodile, alligator, ostrich skin or regular leather. Each bag is made out of two alligator or crocodile skins. The Kelly Bag also comes in multiple different sizes from 50cm to 15cm with various materials and colors. There is a long waiting list for this icon at Hermes Boutiques worldwide. It’s a symbol of wealth and its exclusiveness to the public.
