Each Hermès item is carefully assembled and accordingly has its own particular complexities in light of the craftsman and leather. Each Hermès item will be embossed with the logo stamping in the regular, gold or silver with Hermes Paris logo. Everything ought to be arranged - equally and focused with the Hermès name.


Hermès leather items ought to have a blind stamp. Hermès utilizes alphabetical letters in order to date the bags encompassed by a shape. From 1945 to 1970, no shapes were utilized. From 1971 to 1996, a circle shape is utilized. From 1997 to show, a square shape is utilized. The list demonstrates the year made, and the letter that would be stamped on the bag in view of that year. At the highest priority on each list is the shape that the letter would be confined inside. 

Extra numbers/letters showing up alongside the blind stamp demonstrate the area at the atelier where the bag craftsman works.
