The name Hermès comes from the Greek god of messengers and commerce.
There are 315 exclusive Hermès stores around the globe.
The famous Kelly and Birkin bags are named after Grace Kelly and Jane Birkin.
It takes 48 hours to make a Birkin.
There are around 200,000 Birkins in circulation.
The Birkin bag was famously created for Jane Birkin by the CEO of Hermès in 1981 after he sat next to her on an airplane and saw all of her belongings fall out of her handbag. When he offered to create a new handbag for her, they sketched her ideal design on the back on an airplane sick bag.
A Birkin is a better investmant than shares of the stock market.
Birkin bags start at around $8,500.
The iconic Hermès orange boxes were originally cream colored with a gilded edging imitating the pigskin, then mustard coloured with a brown edging. The first orange boxes came about after the Second World War, due to a shortage of the original materials.
