V Connects: Vedere Looks At The Craftsmanship of Hermes

As you know, Vedere has become synonymous with home decor and international luxury. Featuring designers and artisans from all over the world, Vedere continues to meet consumer demand for custom made works. And it’s that passion for all things custom made, that sparked Vedere’s interest in Hermès’ traveling celebration Festival des Métiers (“Festival of Crafts”) at 583 Park Avenue in New York City earlier this week.

And if you’ve ever wondered how a Birkin bag is made, now is your chance to find out as Hermès travels next  to San Francisco and Houston this week. The festival, which kicked off last year in Seattle and has circulated through several cities all over the world, ends October 15th.

Featuring multiple stations and product demonstrations, be sure to stop by the silk station, showcasing how a Hermès scarf is made. Upon arrival to the silk station, you will learn that the entire process to create a scarf takes a remarkable two years. From design to construction, using traditional techniques, silk is acquired  from the French town of Lyon and over 75,000 colors handmade by the artisans themselves. Enthusiasts getting a glimpse of these artisans at work will never look at a scarf the same way again.
