Hermes as a brand has been around for over 200 years now. They first started in the 18th century as a label making leather harnesses, saddles, etc. and then slowly ventured into retail after Charles-Emile Hermes took charge. Adolphe and Emile-Maurice then took over from their father Hermes and got into the business of making clothes for men, women, and children.
Hermes is the epitome of sophistication and class with everything they make, be it bags, shoes, perfumes, apparel or even interiors for the house. Just like a lot of other companies Hermes saw their share of ups and downs in business. However, they weathered all storms and continued to be a sought-after premium brand, serving the elite. With a revenue of $5 billion, Hermes has come a long way and, that’s why they say that you don’t create a multi billion dollar empire overnight.
