HERMES HAUT A COURROIS FOR THE ROAD
I have a wonderful stash of vintage and new Hermes Haut a Courrois bags in my private collection. This ultimate travel bag, originally designed to hold your saddle, is the inspiration for the Birkin. It is now also made in smaller every day sizes, but this 55 cm nautral leather bag from 1979 (the blind stamp is a bit faint) is a yummy natural leather with a gorgeous patina. Vintage Haut a Courrois bags are praised by collectors and always in demand. Here is your chance to own a piece of history that has probably been around the world... oh, the stories this bag could tell!
