Hermès objects are made to last, to be repaired and passed on — from one hands to another. Like the artisans and craftsmen from the various metiers within the Hermès umbrella, the skills are handed down from one to another. Every object designed and created is also a work of many hands — from the designers to the silkscreen experts, the the leathersmiths to the seamstresses. 

When you are holding on to an Hermès object, it is more than just a piece of scarf or a bag — it is a creation realised through a cross-pollinated artisanal world of the various metiers of Hermès. 

Hermes in the Making Singapore

And we bear you good news. From 1 – 9 October 2022, fans and collectors of Hermès will be able to experience a money-cannot-buy experience at the ‘Hermès in the Making’ exhibition, where artisans from the house’s metiers have been flown down to Singapore to give visitors an in-depth insight into their world. They bring with them their tools, materials and expert gestures from their workshops to Marina Bay Sands to explain how these objects are crafted, detailed and made — in the flesh. 

Meet the artisans — both young and old — each with their own expertise. From watchmakers demonstrating the meticulous work of assembling the Hermès H08 timepiece to a master glove maker who has been with the metier for decades, there’s plenty to experience at the ‘Hermès in the Making’ exhibition. Discover how the Hermès carre is made with an exclusive silkscreen demonstration, learn how the Birkin is repaired, as well as the various processes of jewellery making.
