Whether it's Kim Kardashian buying a $100,000 purse or a photographer burning one for the sake of art, Hermes' coveted bags create a stir whenever they are mentioned.
The 2011 documentary Hearts and Crafts, directed by documentary filmmaker Frederic Laffont, depicts daily life inside a Hermes factory in France where bags, glass goods, drawings, and leather saddles for horseback riding are crafted.
In a month, the Hermes staff can produce 15 hand-crafted bags of different styles and textures. The bags range from $10,000 to $150,000 depending on the size and material used. So how, exactly, are Hermes' bags made? Watch the full documentary here, or click through to see.
