At the petit h workshops, Hermes does everything in reverse – or rather crossways. An object is born of existing materials, the latter breathing life into the former. This creation in reverse results from a unique creative approach based on surprise and transience. The creations are produced as one-off pieces or very limited editions. These object-stories are told at the Hermès boutique on the Rue de Sèvres in Paris and make stopovers at Hermès stores across the globe.
A part of the petit h collection, this Hermes Minaudière box bag in Ambré and shiny Saphir Porosus Crocodile is the only one of its kind in the world. An exceptionally rare find that belongs in the most exclusive personal collection.
