Guide to Buy a Hermes Bags

Condition

Many women venture into the secondary market for value when purchasing a Hermes bag and the most important consideration when looking at pre-loved Hermes bags is the condition. Implement a condition guide to help our clients evaluate the condition of each bag. Bags are rated as either pristine, excellent, very good, good, or fair depending on general wear and tear, scratches, leather and skin condition, and other factors. Using the condition guide in tandem with the pictures of the bag can help you understand the exact appearance of the bag before you make the purchase.

Color

Many first time buyers will play it safe and look at colors which match their whole wardrobe such as black, beige, gold, or brown. However, one of the traits which make Hermes handbags unique is the wide range of colors available, many of which are specific and exclusive to Hermes. Purchasing a black Birkin may be convenient for your wardrobe, however, a bright pink or red bag will stand out more and is less likely to found elsewhere. It will also hold its value for longer if you wish to upgrade in the future.

Leather/Skin

It is so important to know your leathers when purchasing a Hermes bag. Each leather has its own unique characteristics and each leather requires different levels of maintenance. Some of the standard leathers such as Clemence and Togo are textured to protect them from scratches and general wear and tear. Exotic skins such as crocodile, alligator, lizard, snake, and ostrich are high maintenance, but also much more rewarding visually.

Several Types of Bags to Choose

1. Duffle bags
2. Backpacks
3. Tote bags
4. Cinch bags
5. Mesh bags
6. Drawstring bag

First let’s start with duffle bags. Duffle bags have a cylindrical shape and can be found in many different sizes and verities. The bag works extremely well for carrying stuff on the road or taking it to the gym. Its versatility is why it is used for so many different sports. Different companies build the bags for certain sports; you’ll find baseball duffle bags, field hockey duffle bags, and even volleyball duffle bags. Each one is much the same but do have certain design and style differences.

The second one on the list is backpacks. Backpacks are a very popular way to carry items nowadays. They are good because you can spread the weight of the equipment over your shoulders and it makes it more comfortable. Good Volleyball backpacks are often large enough for all your volleyball equipment to fit down in quite nicely.

Tote bags are similar to being a large purse. The bags are straightforward in design usually made of cloth or canvas. If you rarely carry a lot of stuff they are ideal. You can get these types of bags personalized or get your team logo printed on them. This type of bag is good for beach volleyball for example. It is large enough for a beach towel along with small items that you may want at the beach. Bear in mind there isn’t a lot of equipment necessary for beach volleyball.

If you are considering a Cinch bag they use a simple cord that will secure your equipment. It will give you easy access when you are ready to take out your stuff. They are oftentimes carried like a backpack using the cords as straps. Cinch bags have different features like extra pouches for saving or stashing small items, and many have adjustable cords for more comfortable carrying. These are manufactured by a large assortment of suppliers and you can have them monogrammed with anything you want. Coaches will often screen-print the team name and emblem on them.

Mesh bags are generally built with a draw string at the top in order to on and close the bag. This bag is a low-cost investment. Being able to see through the bag is good for anybody who is in a hurry and wants to get something easily. Also being mesh it has good ventilation for clothes and shoes that are wet or damp to allow them to dry more easily.

Drawstring bags are designed utilizing a draw string cord threaded around the top of the bag for easy opening and closing. They are constructed from many different materials such as nylon, canvas, or cotton. These bags are easy to carry, economical and durable. Just as the three bags above they can be very easily screen printed on for a person or even a team.

 

Hermes Mythology

Born in a cave located in Cyliene of Arcadia, Hermes climbed out of the cradle and stole 50 nandies of Apollo soon after he was born. He was so smart. In order to hide the trace of the 50 nandies, he tied up some branches and leaves on his and the Nandies’ feet and drove the nandies moving backwards. Later, he baked two most fertile Nandies and then divided them into 13 pieces. Leaving one piece to himself, he devoted the other 12 pieces to the twelve Olympians in Olympus. So since long before, Hermes became the god which many thieves adored. When he came back to the cave, he killed one big tortoise, and made a Tres with the turtle shell. Afterwards, he sent this Tres to Apollo for the compensation for the 50 Nandies.

Hermes represents for the energetic youth, with Petasus on his head, chlamys on his body, Kerykeion in his hand, coin bags on his waist and pteroeis pedila on his feet. He is the most honest Messenger of Zeus. He helps Zeus to send out messages and finish the tasks which Zeus assigned. Hermes is not only quick off the mark, but also versatile. He invented letters, astronomy and Mathematics. Besides of Tres, he also designed piccolo.

In Rome, Hermes is called Mercurius.

The Greek Mythology shows the wisdom of Greeks. I read the mythology for twice, but I can’t remember all of the names inside the book. But the story of them left me deeper impression. Hermes is one of the figures which I forgot. I found him from the famous brand Hermes in Paris. No matter if it is Hermes in Greek Mythology or Hermes of Hermes Group, both are heck of a good catch.

Hermes handbags have been one of The Ultimate Luxury Products in the world. Many of their bags, especially Birkin bags, are pursued by many famous characters. They are fond of collecting Birkin bags and make this as the symbol of their identity and status. Be famous of pure hand-built, Hermes Bags needs a long time to finish. An entire bag was totally made by one worker. It would cost at least 3 months to finish. So, no matter from the material, workmanship, or the time, it meant Hermes will not be a common brand.

Bags in different styles and different colors are in different leathers. The leathers which Hermes adopted include sheepskin, ostrich skin, lizard skin, and crocodile. The same kind of leathers also include the leathers from different parts of the animal, so it is really worth learning in maintaining the bags. Next time, I will share some knowledge about how to maintain the bags in different material.
