This is the first time we have received anything Hermes in what I call punk leather, but Hermes calls buffalo skipper leather. A wonderful client of the store just called me to tell me this leather was originally developed by Hermes for use on boats and she says it is ultra durable and I quote "virtually indestructible." That's quite an endorsement, wouldn't you say? Although from 2002, this bag appears not only virtually indestructible, but virtually unused, too. Some of the palladium hardware still has protective plastic on it and the exterior as well as interior are flawless. The unusual finish is called "Dalmatian" which this same wise client explained is not the easiest to repair so one must carry this bag more like a Ginger and less like a Skipper when going on your next three hour tour with Gilligan!

Hermes Kelly in "Dalmatian" Buffalo skipper leather, F stamp for 2002. Excellent condition. SOLD
