BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME: After 35 stops across the world, Hermès is bringing its traveling exhibition of craftsmanship home.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to meet artisans from 10 disciplines at the “Hermès hors les murs” event, due to be held at the Carreau du Temple from Nov. 18 to 26. Launched in 2011, the event has previously been known as the “Festival des métiers.”
The presentation, spread over 5,900 square feet, will delve into how Hermès produces bags, saddles, silk squares, ties, jewelry, watches and gloves, among others. Visitors will also be able to take in a 360-degree film about the glassmakers at the Hermès-owned Saint-Louis crystal works, founded in 1586.
The weeklong event will also include round tables and workshops for children and adults, in addition to a pop-up library in partnership with Actes Sud.
