The "Picnic" was first introduced in the year 2011, "The Year of The Craftsman", in very limited quantities to VIP clients. Meticulous basket-weaving techniques were used to create this masterpiece, which showcased Hermes creativity and skill. The pristine Rouge H leather compliments the overall design beautifully. It includes never seen before details like the knotted leather tips and custom leather interior.
Jane Birkin inspired, this rare piece is museum worthy and the reason why Hermes picnic designs are coveted. This Hermes Picnic clutch is truly an object which holds the spirit and heart of Hermes.
