How do I authenticate an Hermès product?

Unfortunately, we cannot verify the authenticity of any item purchased on another website or from an unauthorized retailer. The authenticity of your item is guaranteed only by the original receipt provided at the time of purchase, whether from our website, an Hermès boutique or an authorized retailer such as Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue. We cannot guarantee nor verify the authenticity of any item purchased outside an authorized Hermès boutique.

Do you offer catalogs?

We will be delighted to send you a sample size of one of our fragrances.  You may send an email to us at service.us@hermes.com. Please specify which fragrance you are interested in receiving and include your mailing address.  Please allow at least week to process your request.

Do you sell your orange boxes?

The Hermès orange boxes are created especially to protect the products that they contain. They are not available for individual sale and we cannot send out an extra box if one becomes lost or damaged.

Where are Hermès products manufactured? What kind of fabrics do you use?

The vast majority of Hermès products are manufactured at our production sites in France.
Our bags, luggage and small leather goods are produced by our artisans at approximately 12 French leather goods manufacturing facilities. All of our silk items (notably, ties and scarves) are woven and printed at our factories in the region of Lyon, the birthplace of silk. Hermès also makes use of specific expertise, such as watch-making from Switzerland, cashmere from Mongolia, lacquer from Vietnam and wool from Scotland.
