The adage, ”Patience is a virtue,” rings true when it comes to an Hermes Kelly - it takes a craftsman many years of training before he can work on one, and when he does so, it’s a lone job from start to finish. And then there is the well-known long wait list to procure a Kelly handbag. Like the Birkin, you can't just saunter into a boutique to pick one up. Such is the rarity and exclusivity of a Kelly.

Mini bags are the cute and lovable side companion to any casual or formal do for any woman. And what more could any woman want than a mini bag in the shape of a Kelly? Mini sized bags are typically reserved for the VIP customers of Hermes. This exclusive right places the Kelly Mini II amongst some of the most rare pieces from Hermes. Originally named the Kelly 20 its size was discontinued by Hermes, until its return in the fall of 2016 as the Kelly Mini II.

Rarity and exclusivity are words associated with a Birkin bag. Here’s why: Supply and demand. There are many women who desire the bag but there are reportedly only 200,000 Birkins in circulation. Hermes too, supposedly, has put a halt on special orders, so if you’re looking to purchase a new bag in a specific leather and colour, it’s an indefinite wait. Also the Hermes stores worldwide, only place seasonal orders twice a year. These are typically delivered only six to 12 months later. Why does it take so long to make a Birkin? It is a completely handmade bag, and only one artisan works on it, from start to finish. But not every artisan hired by the company gets to work on the Birkins or Kellys - the ones who do are required to undergo three to four years of training before they can work on them.

Relaxed elegance is how we would describe the Kelly Retourne. It’s a bag made famous by the late American actress turned Monegasque royalty, Grace Kelly, when she used the Sac à dépêches (what the Kelly was known as before) to hide her royal bump.

One of the most identifiable bags in the world, the Kelly Sellier is a symbol of minimalist elegance.

One of the most easily identifiable bags in the world, the Chanel Flap Bag is an evergreen beauty.

Emblazoned with a new interlocking CC lock and fixed with leather woven straps, the new design proved a hit amongst fashionistas and led to many different colour and material variations in the ensuing years.

We love our Birkins. Each is crafted by one master craftsman from start to finish, which practically make them individual works of art. Like fingerprints, no two are identical and each Birkin is a beauty. But there are some Birkins that sway us more than others. The ones made from exotic skin especially, rank top in our books. For example, the ones made from Niloticus crocodile. The process to dye a crocodile hide is time consuming and exponentially difficult, when attempting to achieve lighter shades. However, the finished products are timeless works of art - great investment or heirloom pieces.
An Hermes Kelly is a desirable beauty. But a Kelly crafted from exotic skins, is even more exquisite. For example, one made with the leather from the Porosus crocodile - widely considered the king of exotic skins.

Originally coined the Sac a Depeches, it only got its popular Kelly namesake years after, when Grace Kelly thrust it into the limelight when she used it to shield her pregnancy bump from the paparazzi. It made front page news, and also sealed the bag’s association with the Princess. Not only did the bag gain instant fame, it was officially renamed the Kelly in 1977.
Rarity and exclusivity are words associated with a Birkin bag. Here’s why: Supply and demand. There are many A-listers and celebrities who want the bag, but there are reportedly only 200,000 Birkins in circulation.
