Hermes Picotin Lock 18cm in rare and stunning black Taurillon Clemence & Matte Alligator. PA small bindle inspired by horse troughs, this timeless and minimalist piece gives material star billing. This Picotin is fitted with a discrete padlock and bears the name of an ancient unit measurement. Its lining-less, clean-cut leather and plain, flexible handles make it the ultimate equestrian escort. The leather named in tribute to the daughter of the designer who introduced it into the collections, this leather was developed for luggage and is the ultimate example of a grained leather that has been drummed. This process softens the skin and brings a generous grain to the surface.
