A new Hermès workshop in Héricourt is slated open in 2015 or 2016. The region is a focal point of leather goods production, with specialized training dispensed by the Ecole Boudard located in nearby Bethoncourt.
In 2013, sales of leather goods and saddlery at Hermès expanded 8.8 percent at constant exchange rates, trailing growth of 17.9 percent in ready-to-wear and fashion accessories, and 14.8 percent for perfumes.
Leather goods and saddlery accounted for 44 percent of Hermès sales last year.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
