Kelly Deconstructed

(Kelly bag deconstructed)

Seeing all the pieces in the making of a Kelly bag, somehow I feel so naked!  It's amazing that every piece of leather is so symmetrical yet all cut by hand.  Such precision can only come with years of training (min. 5 years to be precise) with a Master Artisan at the Atellier of the House of Hermes.

However, it is even more impressive when considering the hardest part is yet to come: hand-stitching as traditional saddle-making the whole bag inside out and flipping it back at the end!
