At last! The Hermes exhibition is here!
Held at The Saatchi Gallery, King's Road, London, what a feast for the senses it is. See artisans at work, crafting one of the iconic 'Kelly' bags, or watch silk scarves being screen-printed in front of you. There are opportunities to speak to the craftspeople, and interpreters are on hand to translate if necessary. The entire set-up is welcoming, relaxing and inspiring.
I was lucky enough to go the Press preview yesterday morning but it is open to the public until 27th May, 10am - 6pm and best of all: it's free!

|I loved the ceramic painting - so beautiful|
|Even the carpet was a mixture of chic Hermes print and craft tools (and went well with my new leopard trainers)|
