Hermès Constance 18 Limited Edition Marble Silk Palladium Hardware
The Hermes Constance 24 Marble Silk bag is a rare and exquisite masterpiece that stands out from any other designer bag in the market. This limited edition bag is crafted using a recently discovered Japanese silk marbling technique that took the brand ten long years to find. The intricate design is accentuated with Rose Extreme Swift leather, creating a stunning and vibrant color palette.
This technique, known as suminagashi (floating ink), has been in existence since the 12th century in Japan, initially used to marble paper. However, it eventually made its way to Europe and was applied to fabrics. The Nose family in Kyoto, who are the only producers of this technique left in the world, were discovered by Hermes after an extensive search. In 1963, the father of the Nose family went to Germany to master the craft before bringing it back to Japan.
The result of this painstakingly perfect technique is a bag that is nothing short of a work of art. The combination of the Marble Silk and Rose Extreme Swift leather creates a unique and mesmerizing effect that is sure to turn heads. It is a testament to the brand's dedication to quality and craftsmanship, and its willingness to go to great lengths to discover and preserve rare techniques that have been lost to time.
Owning the Hermes Constance Marble Silk bag is not just about owning a designer bag, but it's also about owning a piece of history and an appreciation for the exquisite art of marbling. This limited edition bag is a must-have for any enthusiast or collector who values craftsmanship and individuality. Every marble silk creation is a piece unique.
