Hermès Leathers 101: Everything That You Need To Know

©Launchmetrics Spotlight

If you have thought about buying any Hermès leather goods you may have wondered about the different types of leathers and what the differences are.

We are going to give you all the details you need to know about the Hermès leathers the brand offers, how they are different, their durability, and the look of each one to help you decide which one is best for you.

1. Epsom Leather

This heat-pressed grain means the leather is quite water resistant and more durable – it does not scratch easily. Epsom leather also takes to colored dyes very well, so every color has a vibrant finish.

2. Togo Leather

This leather, made from calfskin, has a fine natural pebbled grain surface, that still feels quite smooth to the touch, with visible veining and a matte finish.

3. Swift Leather

This type of leather is not as durable as other options, which means it can be prone to scratches – so if you do get a swift leather bag, you have to be extra careful.

4. Taurillon Clemence Leather

The wider grains on the leather may mean that over time it can crack around the edges, but with refurbishment and reconditioning, the leather will look as good as new.

5. Box Leather

This box calf leather develops a lovely patina, which makes your bag completely unique to just you.

6. Chèvre Mysore Leather

If you like leather with a more visible grained and textured look, then Chèvre Mysore is right for you, with its stunning look and scratch-resistant finish.
