a little about Hermès leathers

TOGO: textured & anti-scratch calf leather. is lightweight, yet holds it’s shape. this is the most popular leather for Hermès Birkin Bags.

CLEMENCE: textured & anti-scratch leather like Togo. made from a baby bull. the grain is less deep than Togo, causing a more “matte” effect. Clemence leather is lovely & soft – one of my personal favorites.

FJORD: also textured & anti-scratch. made from an adult Bull. more durable than Togo or Clemence, even waterproof!

CALF BOX: classic smooth calf leather. a more rigid structure than the grainy leathers. will show scratches more than the textured leathers, but over time it will develop a beautiful “patina”. Calfbox is one of the few skins that can be re-conditioned by Hermès – they send it to France to the original craftsmen that created the piece, & it will be returned almost as new!

CHAMONIX: another variation of smooth calf leather similar to “Box”, just matte instead of shiny. frequently combined with white topstich. looks great on Kelly bags…very sophisticated. distinguished by natural “Hermès Made In France” blindstamps instead of the usual printed tecnique. can be re-conditioned.

BARENIA: another variation of smooth calf leather. like “Chamonix”, it’s frequently combined with white topstich & is distinguished by natural “Hermès Made In France” blindstamps. can be re-conditioned. a beautiful leather originally used for saddles, but looks great on bags as well!

EPSOM: the new Courchevel. this leather is grainy with a slight sheen. lightweight & durable. a great alternative to Calfbox: wont scratch & will hold it’s shape.

CHEVRE: made from goatskin. this leather is textured thus anti-scratch, but is also shiny & rigid. ultra lightweight. a very interesting skin – more expensive than calf leathers. rare!!
