The company Hermès, based in Paris, was founded in 1837 by the saddler Thierry Hermès (1901-1878) as a business for riding accessories. Under Thierry's son, Charles-Émile Hermès, the product range was extended to cases and leather bags as of 1878. Handbags were introduced in the 1920s. Finally, in 1951, the company launched its first perfume. The high quality and durability of the Hermès products quickly became known throughout Europe. Today, Hermès is known worldwide for its high quality craftsmanship. 


It was not until the 1930s when Hermès started producing their famous scarves and opened a scarf factory in 1937. Over the years, freelance artists have been employed to design the scarves, allowing different designs and motifs for every type of collector. Today, Hermès’ scarves are a widely collected symbol of success and are the epitome of Parisian luxury. (kre)
